Joining KYC

Ever think of joining a Yacht Club? The reasons for joining are as varied as the folks who belong. Some want to meet other boaters with similar interests, others want to learn more about boating, some are sailboat racers and others like the social life that the club offers. If you are a boat owner, or are interested in boats, KYC probably has something to offer.


Membership in KYC is by invitation; any KYC member can sponsor an applicant.

Prospective members must have a sincere interest in pleasure boating, power or sail, of any type, and look forward to the association and friendship of others with like interests offered through Ketchikan Yacht Club membership.


New members, along with their sponsoring members, are required to submit a membership application form, along with the appropriate dues and initiation fee, to the club Secretary or Treasurer for action by the membership at the next regular meeting.

New members must be approved by a majority vote of those members present.

Prospective members must be excused from the meeting while their membership application is being considered.
