New Member Events


When: Saturday, May 13, 2017 ~ 4:00pm*
Where:   Port Madison Outstation
Registration: Online

Join the New Member Activities Committee for a cruise (or drive) to Port Madison.  *Greenbox starts at 4:00pm with a potluck dinner served at 6pm in the clubhouse.  Whether this is your actual first cruise as a New Member or just one of your first visits to our wonderful collection of Outstations, this is a great way to meet people, get to know the Outstation facilities and rules, and learn about Club traditions.  

"Greenbox" is a longstanding SYC cruising tradition involving fun, appetizers and, notably, kind of a strange name.  Please bring an appetizer of your choice to share.  

While we encourage all of you to arrive by boat and spend the night at the dock, this event is organized to make it easy to travel by car to spend the afternoon and evening with the group.  When you register, please let us know if you will be arriving by boat or by car.


When:  Wednesday, May 17 ~ 6:00pm
Where:  Mainstation Clubhouse - Heritage Room
Registration:  Online

Would you like to meet the SYC managers?  Do you have questions about Club and Marina operations?  Join us for a New Member Orientation in a fun speed-dating format to learn more about how to register for a Club event or activity, private event options, Ward Room and Marine Room offerings, our sailing department's programs and activities, how our moorage program operates, and how to take full advantage of the SYC website.  

Complimentary appetizers and beverages.  Questions? Contact Josie Weiss, Membership Director.
