West River Sailing Club is located on the banks of the West River in the quiet town of Galesville, Maryland.  Our clubhouse and grounds command a panoramic view of the West River and Chesapeake Bay.  We are away from the frenetic waters of Annapolis yet within easy reach of Washington and Baltimore where many of our members reside.  Our location is ideally located for racing small boats and allows our cruising fleet to reach many of the Chesapeake Bay's best anchorages.

After gathering financing for the trip with loans and donations, they set off on an epic 101 day-long journey across 8,000 kilometers, all while the world was watching. KON-TIKI tells about the origin of Heyerdahl's idea and the events surrounding the group's voyage.  "Kon-Tiki is a widescreen man-against-nature epic, beautifully shot and boasting seamless, stunning visual effects.”
