An investor website has voted the Annapolis Yacht Club the seventh most exclusive yacht club in America out of 11 clubs.
InsiderMonkey.com formulated its list by looking at the 2014 listing of best clubs by the Platinum Clubs of America. Annapolis Yacht Club is sixth on the Platinum Clubs of America's Top 20 list. The club has more than 1600 members and is rebuilding after a December fire destroyed its Annapolis property. The club is currently residing in a former restaurant on Dock Street.
Insider Monkey added points to clubs that competed and won the America Cup and Resolute Cup yachting races to generate its list. Annapolis placed second in the 2010 Resolute Cup and two of its members have won the America's Cup.
Another recognized accomplished was the yacht club's hosting of the Annapolis to Newport race. The website dubbed that race "one of the most iconic races in America's yachting history."
Other clubs on the list included the New York Yacht Club. This club, the oldest on the list, has about 3,000 members and membership is invitation only. It has won the America's Cup 25 times and is the longest winning streak in the history of sports, according to the website. It is also the oldest club on the list with its founding in 1844.
