Join us! We love life on the water – and our community continues to grow because we are not alone. We welcome you to explore RYC and the benefits of membership.
You do not need to be a boat owner or a boater to be a member. Many of our members joined the club as they wanted to enjoy all the fun and benefits of a boat without worrying about the cost or hassle. Here at RYC we offer several types of boats for members’ use plus our boat owning members love to have others join them for an afternoon or evening out on the water
As a not-for-profit, member-owned club, our vibrant community celebrates tradition as it meets members’ diverse interests and changing needs. Membership privileges for our members and their guests include:
- Enjoy the fun of our year round calendar of social events and activities both on and off the water creating lifetime traditions and memories. Our long standing, annual events include the Commodore's Ball, Breakfast with Santa, Breakfast with the Easter Bunny, Holiday Ball, Memorial Day, Basin Fest, Father's Day breakfast and brunch on Mother’s Day. We also host a variety of fun nights such as trivia night, Murder Mystery Night, Frank Sinatra Night, and Hawaiian Night.
- Host your next family or business events with special member pricing.
Our Club House is your new favorite spot to gather with family, friends and work colleagues. Have a special dietary need or request? Call ahead and let us know! Looking to take food on the go? We do that too! You can have your meals boxed to enjoy when you are on the water or at home.
Generations of families and professionals have called RYC home, forming enduring bonds and creating memories that last a lifetime. Our active member base loves the variety of social events, educational programs, seminars, holiday festivities, boating excursions, and happy-hour gatherings.
In a safe and family friendly environment, kids enjoy a variety of fun events and activities. Watch them learn to swim in the pool, play in the playground, or even take youth sailing lessons. We also host supervised play (ages 8 weeks to 10 years old) in our kid's room on Fridays.

Our Membership Process
Our membership process starts once a completed membership packet has been submitted and received by RYC. This includes the completed Membership Form, a letter of intent as well as the endorsement of two current members at RYC. As part of the process, our Membership Committee meets each month to review the prospect’s background including personal and boating experience.
We understand that membership candidates may be new to the area or not know current members who can endorse them. If you are interested in membership and don’t know any of our current members, we offer several options to introduce you to The Club and members, and allow us to get to know you. For more information contact our Membership Director at [email protected] or (585) 342-5511x110.
