Joining Seattle Yacht Club


Seattle Yacht Club welcomes applications for membership from Northwest boaters who would like to join our active community. Seattle Yacht Club is incorporated for the purpose of encouraging yachting and boating of all kinds, along with the development of recreational marine advantages of the Pacific Northwest.  

There are several levels of membership available based on the age of the candidate and marital status. Members of the Club are entitled to use our Outstations, participate in a wide range of regattas and cruises, and enjoy activities and dining events at the Club. 

The application process begins when a voting member of SYC checks out an Application Packet and becomes the candidate's Sponsor.  Additionally, in order to apply for membership, you will need to know three voting members who will act as Recommenders.  Prospective members are invited to submit a request directly to the Membership Director by completing the online Prospective Members Interest Form (please be sure to include the names of any SYC members who you already know).
