Atlantic Yacht Basin – Home of Hickory Crew

The HRC Rowing Facility is located at the Atlantic Yacht Basin (AYB). The AYB is on the Intra-coastal Waterway just south of the Great Bridge Lock in Chesapeake. However, we park in the Chili’s parking lot located just south of the Great Bridge Bridge. We meet as a group and run down to the AYB.

Atlantic Yacht Basin has been attracting discerning captains and yacht owners from all over the world since 1936. The family owned business for three generations has maintained the standards and tradition of AYB. The boatyard is one of the finest facilities on the waterway and a perfect home to our club.

The Atlantic Yacht Basin has graciously provided us our boathouse without charge. It is therefore extremely important for our rowers to understand that we are guest at Atlantic Yacht Basin and we must always follow their rules and treat their facilities with respect. The Boathouse is private property. Please keep the Atlantic Yacht Basin area clean and neat; don’t litter!

We also share the boathouse with Great Bridge and Juniper rowing clubs. Do not use or move things that do not belong to you.

No running or horseplay is allowed in and around the boathouse, on the docks, or ramps.

Do not interfere with another team’s practice. Be in the area designated by the coach at all times. Get your boats into and out of the water quickly – a one minute dock time is our goal. We need to strive to meet this goal.
