Joining CYC

We are currently accepting new members and hope you will consider joining our sailing community.  Reach out to any of us members to learn more, then apply online using the form below.  We do require two sponsors on your application – feel free to visit the yacht club during a Friday social to get to know a few people before joining. We look forward to having you as a member!

At CYC, we share a love of sailing – that is our bond.  We invite you to join us and be part of a thriving sailing community.

The mission of the club is to promote, advance and encourage the sport of Corinthian (amateur) sailing, including racing and cruising, and to strengthen the sailing community through the voluntary action of its members.

There are a couple of things that we currently NOT able to offer, including:

There are many benefits to being a member at Corinthian Yacht Club of Seattle located at Shilshole Bay, Seattle.

  • Dedicated women’s social program and yearly learn to sail and race series.
  • Preferred pricing for racing and youth programs as well as the women’s sailing series and other classes.

  • Non-boat owners and boat owners who have become members have found like-minded friends to sail, crew and race with forming lifelong bonds of friendship.
  • Extensive social and educational programs throughout the year.
  • Fun Summer racing/sailing events such as free open sailing on Friday nights and bbq.
  • Reciprocal privileges with more than 90 yacht clubs from British Columbia to Mexico and Hawaii.
