Inquire about Membership

From sportsmanship to friendship, from our ships to yours, there's always so much to do and get involved in at the Chicago Yacht Club. While the Chicago Yacht Club is dedicated to our on-the-water membership groups: racing sail, cruising sail and powerboat; we also have an ardently active volunteer base and social event calendar.

You do not need to own a boat to join the Chicago Yacht Club!  We offer sailboat, paddle board and kayak rentals for our members!

When you become a member you are invited to meet and learn from fellow power and sail enthusiasts; take lessons at our Sailing School for adults and juniors; get involved on a committee and socialize with friends and family on land or in the waters of Lake Michigan and beyond.

Applying for a membership at Chicago Yacht Club requires a current member sponsor in good standing as well as endorsements by three active members. If you are not acquainted with a current member, then Emily Giaimo, our Membership Marketing Director, can facilitate an introduction. Upon application, prospective members are also required to meet the Admissions Committee.  More information on the application process and requirements is available upon request.
