Join WYC

The Wayzata Yacht Club is a non-profit sailboat racing club that is owned and operated by its members. A paid membership is required for racing your boat at WYC. (Note: see club bylaws for membership details)

Full Membership - $450
Full membership is appropriate for those intending to race a boat, moor at the club docks, and vote on club issues. Full memberships include your spouse and young children. Upon joining, or upgrading membership status, a one-time $400 membership certificate must be purchased.

Skipper Membership - $320  
Skipper memberships are popular for sailors who do not own a boat, but wish to regularly act as the required "member-on-board". Additionally, all equity holders in boat partnerships are required to, at a minimum, be Skipper Members. Skipper members cannot vote or earn mooring points at the club.

Crew Membership - $100
Crew membership provides sailors who crew at WYC with club mailings, a club parking permit, access to club grounds and facilities, and guilt-free access to refreshments after the race. Crew members may also act as the "member-on-board" on a limited basis as noted in the Notice of Race eligibility and entry (section 2.2.2). A crew membership is not required when you are the guest of a boat’s owner or when you are first visiting WYC to try sailboat racing. After 5 races sailors are required to have at least a crew membership. Crew memberships are also recommended for youth and small boat sailors. Crew memberships are an exiguous $100.
