Membership in Middle River Yacht Club

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 mate.   


“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).
