Membership Options -  2024

Dear Prospective Member,

There are two options for membership in Duck Island Yacht Club:

1. Become an Active Member and enjoy full privileges, which include use of all Club facilities and moorings. Active membership requires a payment of a $500.00 nonrefundable Capital contribution to Duck Island Yacht Club and the 2024 dues, which include applicable taxes, is set at $650.00. In subsequent years, you will be obligated to pay only the annual dues set by the Board of Governors.  The Capital contribution can optionally be paid in installments of $125.00 per year for 4 years.

2. Become a Social Member. Social Memberships are available for those who do not own a boat, or whose boat is 20 ft or less in length. Social Members enjoy use of all facilities of the Club, except the Club moorings. Social members may not vote on Club matters, but may hold any officer position except Commodore, Vice Commodore, and Treasurer. Social membership requires payment of the 2024 dues, set at $130.00, which include applicable taxes.

Please note that the annual dues will be prorated, as follows, to take into consideration the time of year that you become a member of Duck Island Yacht Club:

  • 100% of dues are paid if you join between January 1 - June 30
  • 70% of dues are paid if you join between July 1 - August 31
  • 30% of dues are paid if you join between September 1 - December 31

During the first year, a new member will be invited to attend an officer's meeting, which are held monthly. There they will be introduced to the officers, given a membership package, and invited to sit in on the business part of the meeting. They may be asked to serve on a committee or to participate, as needed, in any activities necessary to keep DIYC in good repair and running smoothly. We ask that new members attend at least two social events so they will become acquainted with more of the Duck Island membership.

Please remit the appropriate fees along with your application for membership to your proposer who will then forward all required application materials and recommendation forms to the club secretary. Membership applications are posted on the web and the clubhouse door for members to review for 30 days. The Board of Governors will then vote on accepting the members.
