Membership at Vernon Yacht Club
From its humble beginnings in 1953, with 33 founding members, the Vernon Yacht Club’s membership has grown to close to 500 members, with full moorage in the marina, and an active social scene. Design of our next expansion to increase the number of slips situated within our marina, with the anticipation to commence immediately after our breakwater replacement project is completed, is just beginning. There is presently a waiting list for new members waiting for slips so the sooner you get your membership application submitted the sooner you can expect a slip.

How to become a member
To join the Vernon Yacht Club there is one time initiation fee, annual dues, and moorage. Once you become a regular member, you enjoy all the clubhouse and marina privileges. There is also the opportunity to join the Vernon Yacht Club as a Social Member with certain limitations and restrictions.
Our members volunteer at the club and our members benefit from our history of volunteerism. As a result, our culture provides a sense of club ownership, friendship and knowledge of other members and effectively keeps our dues as low as possible.
Persons interested in joining the Vernon Yacht Club are invited to speak with any Club member, Club staff, or just email our Membership Director.
