Membership Information

The objective of the Stage Harbor Yacht Club is to teach, encourage and promote the sport of sailing. With this in mind, the Admissions Committee would like to outline revised procedures for applying for membership to SHYC.
Application Requirements:

1. Completed SHYC Application Form. Forms are available at Stage Harbor Yacht Club or from a member of the Admissions Committee.
2. Two (2) letters of recommendation – One from the Candidate’s Proposer and one from the Candidate’s Seconder. It is requested that the Proposer know the Candidate(s) for a reasonable period of time. Additionally, the Proposer should feel entirely confident that the Candidate(s) will be suitable additions to the Club. Club members may propose up to two (2) candidates per calendar year.
3. Applications for admission to SHYC are accepted throughout the year, however in order for a new member to be included in the current directory, all materials and payments must be received by May 1st.
Please Note:
The Proposer shall assume responsibility for submitting to the Admissions Committee all of the requirements needed for the application process and will also be responsible for all communications between the Candidate and the Admissions Committee.

Admission to Stage Harbor Yacht Club does not guarantee admission to the Sailing School and Junior Entertainment. From time to time, the Sailing School reaches full capacity and a waiting list is created for new members. Students will be admitted on a first-come basis according to age and ability. Top-notch instruction and safety are the Club’s primary concerns thus limiting class size and space availability.

  • Must be six years old before attending first class and pass swimming test to attend Hermit Crabs
  • Must be eight years old before attending first class and pass swimming test to attend Seaman
