Membership

Q: Do you have to own a boat to join?

A: NO, but you'll want to after you've been on a few.  Becoming a member is a great way to make friends with boat owners and become familiar with boating before becoming a captain on your own vessel of any size.

Q: Do you have to be rich to join a Yacht Club?

A: Absolutely not!  CCYC prides itself on being a friendly, "snob-free" yacht club with a very reasonable annual fee. 

Q: How many people are included per membership?

A: One boat and/or 1-2 people per membership are assumed.

Q: What responsibilities will be expected of me?

A: To have fun in joining the club activities of your choosing.  Volunteers are always welcome, but never expected.

Q: How much is the membership dues?

A: Current membership dues are $140.00 per year.  This covers October 1st thru September 30th.  New members that join after October pay a prorated dues based on $12.00 per month starting from the month following their application submission thru September 30th.  Minimum membership is 3 months.  Full membership dues are due on October 1st.  New members are also assessed a one time application fee of $40.00 which also includes a club burgee.

Q: What's included in my membership?

A: For your modest annual fee, you receive:

Invitation to monthly Club Events

Annual Dinner Party

Reciprocal rights to other PICYA clubs

Roster listing, published annually in Yachting Yearbook

Club sponsored contribution to the RBOC

Q: Is there a late fee assessed to delinquent membership dues?

A: Yes.  All members have a 30 day grace period to pay their dues renewal.  Dues paid after the 30th of October shall be assessed a $10.00 late fee.  Dues not paid by November 30th shall be cause for deletion from the roster and said members must reapply for membership as a newmember.

Q: How long does the application process take?

A: Approximately 4-6 weeks.  Once an application and associated fees are received the application is put before the board for review and approval.  Once approved, a new member packet will be mailed.  In the rare case that an application is denied all monies paid shall be returned to the applicant.
