Regular Membership

A Regular Membership is available to any person who is at least 21 years of age and owns a boat with an assigned mooring in Montrose Harbor. Applicants must be approved by the Board of Directors.

Associate Memberships

An Associate Membership offers the same rights and privileges as a Regular Membership, under the same requirements, but with lower initiation fees and dues.  These are only available to younger boaters.  Applicants must be approved by the Board of Directors.  Proof of age is required. An Associate-25 member must be no more than 25 years old during each full season that the membership is active.  An Associate-30 member must be no more than 30 years old.

Affiliate Membership

The Affiliate Membership is intended for people who do not have a boat moored in Montrose Harbor and are members of a boating organization that does not reciprocate with CCYC, such as a yacht club within 35 miles of Montrose Harbor. This includes members of the Freedom Boat Club who sail out of Montrose Harbor. An Affiliate Member may use the club facilities but cannot vote, serve on the CCYC Board of Directors, serve as the head of any club committee, or host an event at the club without sponsorship by a regular member.  Applicants must be approved by the Board of Directors.

Crew Membership

Crew Members must serve as regular crew for a sponsoring Regular or Life Member and must not have an assigned mooring in Montrose Harbor. The sponsorship must be renewed each year, with the sponsor confirming willingness to take responsibility for the Crew Member's behavior at the club.  This membership does not include voting privileges, but limited guest privileges are allowed.

Student Membership

Adult participants in Corinthian University programs, including parents of Junior Fleet sailors, are eligible to apply for a one year Student Membership with the same rights, privileges and costs as a Crew Membership. Enrollment in a Corinthian University program during the membership season is required. Applications must be approved by Corinthian University.

Social Membership

A Social Membership is available to a former member or surviving spouse who has been a regular member in good standing for five consecutive years but no longer moors a boat in the Chicago area, as defined in the by-laws. This membership does not have voting privileges; however, guest privileges are allowed.  Applicants must be approved by the Board of Directors.

Non-Resident Membership

Any member in good standing who moves, and whose current residence and principal place of business are more than 50 miles from Montrose Harbor, and who has no ownership interest in a boat in the Chicago area, is eligible to apply for a Non-resident Membership.  Applicants must be approved by the Board of Directors.

Life Membership

 LIfe membership is offered as a recognition of outstanding service to the club over many years of membership.  Applicants must be approved by the Board of Directors.

For consideration to become a Social, Non-Resident or Life Member, please contact the Commodore.
