Joining SYC

Seattle Yacht Club welcomes applications for membership from Northwest boaters ages 10+ who would like to join our active community.  Several levels of membership are available based on the age and marital status of the candidate(s). Candidates may apply for an individual membership or, if married, a joint membership. If a member of a married couple decides to apply for an individual membership, the spouse may accompany the member as a guest. 

Members of the Club are entitled to use our Portage Bay Clubhouse and10 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 or surviving member of SYC checks out an application packet and becomes the sponsor.  Each application needs to be supported by one sponsor and three other voting or surviving members to serve as recommenders.
