Membership is available to all applicants following this procedure regardless of race, sex religion or ethnic origin. C.C.Y.C. welcomes members who share an interest in boating and who will support club activities as needed, emphasizing our long-standing "Volunteer" spirit.
In the case of married couples or boats with multiple owners making application for membership, the person signing the application will be considered the applicant, and thus the member, unless directed otherwise. Both thought, may apply as individual members if desired.
