As seen from the Spa Creek bridge, this facility will be our main hub for running regular and special sailing races and regattas. It also will be where we support our varied junior sailing programs, with sufficient space for dry storage of our fleets of boats. The building will incorporate conference areas for meetings and education, and is the new home of the AYC administrative offices.
There is parking on the Severn Avenue side of the Sailing Center, with a covered portico to drop off junior sailors near the breezeway entrance into the sailing facility. A gated entrance on the far side allows moving boats in and out of the Sailing Center.
A large workshop provides Waterfront Services with space for maintenance of Club sailboats, with a tall garage door that allows the dockmaster to bring a J/22 into shop for repair or maintenance. The waterfront activity offices are located on this floor, as well as men's and women's locker rooms in support of the many Club sailing events and programs.
