How to Join

Active Membership

Active Members have full rights to all areas of the Club, beach, launch, and waterfront, and are voting members. 

A candidate for Active Membership must be sponsored by an Active Member. The candidate’s personal and boating background will be reviewed as part of the application process. In addition, the candidate must obtain the endorsement of three additional Active Club Members.

Active Membership applications are considered three times each year.

The Provisional Membership Program

In 2021, the Club launched the Provisional Member Program. The Provisional Member Program is an opportunity for those without current connections to HYC to experience membership for a single season. Provisional Members gain access to the benefits of Active Membership as well as the opportunity to make relationships in order to secure sponsors/seconders and apply for full membership status. Provisional Member applications are due by April 15. For more information, click here to contact Christine Kuchar, Member Services by email.

Associate Member

Associate Members have access to the Captain's Table restaurant-level only; but may be included in other activities by invitation from an Active Member (e.g. Racing & Social Events). Associate Members are not voting members.

A candidate for Associate Membership status may be recommended by another member or may petition the Club for membership. Application forms are available at the clubhouse. Associate Membership may be applied for at any time.
