Sailing / Yacht Club
The Old Dominion Boat Club was organized in July 1880 to combine physical fitness and sport with a social atmosphere. The very first members were 'Alexandrians of the highest order', leaders of the business, civic and social corridors. The early members were canoeists, swimmers, sailing and rowing enthusiast and eventually power-boating was added to the water sports activities. Through the many years past, the Club has involved itself in many humanitarian activities, such as Christmas Parties for the underprivileged, boating parties for the handicapped children of the city, helping the Salvation Army and the March of Dimes. The ODBC has been a continuous supporter to the social, recreational, civic and material progress of the City of Alexandria.
