Joining is easy, the OYC welcomes new members, simply fill in the membership form and return it to the Club. You will be asked to come along to the Club to discuss what we can offer and what you expect from the Club but you will be guaranteed a warm welcome and we will try to accommodate your needs. You will become part of a Club dedicated to providing good services and facilities at the lowest possible costs and to join with some of the friendliest people sailing on the East Coast.

Membership Charges and Fees – There are three full adult classes of Subscription all charged at common yearly rate.
