Because Middle River Yacht Club is a working Club that is owned, maintained, and
run entirely by its members, active participation by Members and their Families is
key to the Club's continued success. To become a Member, at least one Full Member
in Good Standing, who knows you personally and can affirm that your participation
and commitment as a member would be enjoyable and successful for you, your family,
and Middle River Yacht Club must sponsor you for a one-year probationary period.
Full Members: These are our Voting members & Owners of our Club. They are the party
animals (along with their mates) who make this Club. They are active, have a boat,
love to socialize and have a real stake (and care) what happens within the Club.
Mate Members: These are also voting members. They are the party animals who have
a “significant other” as a Full member. They care and do as much for our Club as
their “significant other”. The difference is they get their own Vote in matters of
the Club (independent cusses), and happen to share boat slip with their FULL member
“Other” Mate: These are our party animals who are also a “significant other” to a
member. They’re non paying members & have no “official” obligations. They support
their member by caring and doing as much for our Club as their significant other.
They’re our quiet partners whose generosity of time & support is indispensable. We
love them and know we can’t live without them.
Social Members: These are our born-to-party animals. They love us and really want
to be a part of our Club. They just don’t have a use for a boat slip or are on the
waiting list for a Full membership slot. We love them and want them to feel part
of the family.
Associate Members: These members want to lease a slip, if available (FULL members
have priority). Unfortunately their time is limited (busy people) and are not available
for our social events or Club matters. Their fees help pay Club debt obligations
and we appreciate all the help we can get (empty slips are costly).
Honorary Members: These members are recommended by the Board of Directors and voted
in by the membership. These members have earned this honor through past practices.
It’s an honor to have them in our family. They may even lease a slip (FULL & ASSOCIATE
members have priority).
Once filled out, Prospective Members can print a paper copy (Crtl + P) and bring the Membership Application to an MRYC Board Meeting to apply for Probatioary Membership. Please note that there is a $300.00 Application Fee (non-refundable) which is due at this meeting.
