Harraseeket Yacht Club is a small, local club. Members must live in Freeport or demonstrate community ties and are expected to volunteer their time and skills to support the club’s operations and activities.
“The objective of the club shall be to encourage and promote the sport of boating and the science of seamanship and navigation particularly for instruction to the youth of this area and to do all things necessary or incidental through volunteerism to the accomplishment and fulfillment of said purposes.”
If seeking membership, a completed application and the endorsement forms of three sponsoring members must be submitted by October 1 in order to be considered for membership in the following year. Because Active (Family and Individual) membership is limited to 250 adults, successful applicants may be needed to be assigned Provisional Active member status and placed on a waiting list for an Active membership to become available. In recent years, the waiting period for Family or Individual membership has been 2 years or more.
If you wish to pursue membership you can download review and complete the Membership Application Form and three HYC Sponsor Form.
