What AYC Membership Means:
Community, Comradery, Volunteerism and Effort make for a greater boating experience
The AYC is all about everyone sharing a common interest in boating. It should be obvious to any boater that it is all much more fun and interesting when you have friends to share your experiences, ask questions to, and share knowledge of boats, waters, techniques, safety, gear, electronics and so on.
How to Become an AYC Member
A limited membership should not discourage your interest in joining
Our bylaws allow for a maximum of 300 members at any given time. This means we usually have a waiting list of candidates. Currently, however, it is taking only a year or two to reach the point of potentially becoming a member of the club.
AYC Members' Sponsorship Is Required
You will need two members to sponsor your AYC application
If you are interested in joining our club, we recommend you make a call or send us an email asking to be invited to one or two club events. Unfortunately no club event is automatically open to the public, except for regattas. This way you'll have an opportunity to meet with and discuss what the AYC is to its members, as well as what some of the members are like. After meeting some of us you can approach a couple of members and ask if they will sponsor your application. They may agree right away, or they may ask you to be their guests at a few more events, in order to know you better.
