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.   


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!

J/22 Fleet 


Members of the Seattle Yacht Club have access to a fleet of six J/22 sailboats. These boats, which arrived in 2014, have enabled local sailors to hone their team, fleet, and match racing skills in regular practice and regattas. Now, to further promote the sport of sailing and racing, the Club is adding several new programs, including match racing events beginning last May. Want to get involved? The J/22 Committee is currently looking for Boat Captains for each of the boats, and also for members to help with planning regattas.
Please contact Phil Calvert: phil.calvert@comcast.net , or Dave Ferguson: Dave@clanfergus.net to join the committee.

Options and Cost: $30 per use*
