About Becoming a Member of the Chapoquoit Yacht Club




The Chapoquoit Yacht Club's Members include Associates (families who own property on Chapoquoit Island), seasonal and year-round residents of the West Falmouth area, even families who regularly rent in the area during the summer months. Members enjoy myriad on- and off-the-water activities, from sailing instruction to social events.

To join the Club, you must be proposed by an established member and supported by two additional established members. You may apply at any time; proposed members must be approved by the Chapoquoit Yacht Club Council, which reviews applications each Spring.

New members are charged an Initiation Fee, along with their first-year's Dues. In subsequent years, Dues are invoiced each Spring.

Categories of Membership are as follows:

Family Membership: Married couples or domestic partners, with or without children. Children may remain part of a Family Membership to the age of 22.

Junior Membership: Junior Membership is afforded to children of Family Members. Upon reaching the age of 23, Junior Membership is available to former Family Members to the age of 29.

Senior Membership: Senior Membership is offered to Members (either individual or as a couple) 65 years of age and older.

Individual Membership: Individual Members are persons without a spouse or children.
