Active Intermediates


SYC members between the ages of 21 and 40 are represented by the Active Intermediate committee. The committee arranges activities which will introduce this group to other club members and the variety of opportunities offered by SYC. Participation in the Active Intermediate group is a great way to meet other club members, learn about the club and maximize the enjoyment of membership. We are actively seeking input on how to maintain and attract AIs at SYC. Please come and join us and help us make the club a fantastic place to be now and 100 years from now.

AI Events

The Active Intermediates organize some of the favorite events around the club, ranging from parties at the Portage Bay main station to the excellent Halloween non-event at Port Madison. All SYC members are invited to participate in AI events.   

Club Sailboat

Curragh (ker-RAH) is a Catalina 25 (a 25' sailboat) that was donated to the club through the generosity of the Curran family in March 2004 with the intention of boosting participation in boating among the AI membership. Many AIs don't have the time and/or money to own their own boat, but Curragh can fill the void. She is designed as a cruiser and can sleep five. She's perfect for a small family, or group of adults for an extended cruise.

Curragh is available for checkout by the membership year round. Reservations are required, and you must be on the Approved User List to make a reservation. Members can reserve the boat for any time period it is available. She can be reserved for as long as nine days to allow for extended cruising and participation in SYC events, but not North of Port Townsend.

Details on Curragh's use can be found in the policy document below. To use the boat, Members must pass a check-out with the Sailing Director. Check-outs can be scheduled with Brian Ledbetter by phone (206) 926-1011 or email: brianl@seattleyachtclub.org.

Once on the Approved User List, the steps to use the boat are as follows:

  1. Make a reservation for the boat at the Front Desk.
  2. Sign the Liability Waiver and return to the Front Desk.
  3. On the day of use, inspect the boat for pre-existing damage, missing equipment, and fuel level. Report anything out of the ordinary in step 4.
  4. Fill out the Check-out/Check-in Form and return to the Front Desk.
  5. Go play.
  6. Upon return, top-off the water, empty the head, clean the boat, and stow equipment. For multi-day cruises you will be expected to return the boat with a full fuel tank as well.
  7. Fill out the Check-out/Check-in Form (again) and return to the Front Desk.
  8. Fill out a Maintenance Request if necessary.

(please note:  Club Boat policies could change without notice.  Please check with the Sailing Office the most up to date policies and procedures)


Come meet the little yellow boat and get checked out to use her next time you need a boating fix!

Stand-Up Paddleboards (SUP) and Kayaks

Seattle Yacht Club has four stand-up paddleboards and two kayaks available for members to use year-round at the mainstation. These can be checked out or reserved ahead of time through the Front Desk.

Tuesday Night Sailing

Come to the mainstation on Tuesday Nights in the summer for sailing, casual races, dinner and games on the lawn! All of the small sailboats are available for members and their guests, and Sailing Instructors will be on hand to assist members on and off the water. Dinner is served on the lawn afterwards. Fun for all ages.
Tuesday nights from late June through the end of August- watch the Compass News and Binnacle for exact dates!
