The Stockton Yacht Club is Welcoming New Members!
Dear Delta Boater,
Are you getting full value from your boat? Are you out there enjoying the Delta every weekend? Does your significant other enjoy boating? Or are they reluctantly putting up with it just to please you. Do you find yourself using the boat less and less? How would you like to expand your boating and social activities and cruise to different ports in the company of other boaters? Want to get more fun out of life and more use out of your boat? Then join the Stockton Yacht Club.
Advantages of Yacht Club Membership:
Yacht Club membership changes the nature of boating. With Yacht Club membership, boating becomes a social activity. Instead of you enjoying the Delta, it becomes you and your fellow club members enjoying the Delta. We usually have a social event every month.
We do weekend cruises to other clubs and spots around the Delta. It is very comforting to go with a group if you are new to the Delta, particularly if we are going to some of the out of the way clubs. Past cruises have seen towing, engine repair, pulling some one off the mud, clearing a fouled prop, or other mishaps. If the channel is poorly marked, it's reassuring to follow someone in or have someone coach you in on the radio. If you are new to the game, we can assign you a buddy boat - although we all monitor channel 16 or 68.
Club Membership Privileges:
The Stockton Yacht Club is a reciprocal member of the PICYA entitling members to privileges at over 80 clubs in the Bay area. Your club membership card entitles you to guest privileges at any other yacht club, around the Delta, Bay, on the West Coast, in Mexico, and in fact in most places - around the world. The only exception that we know of is the St. Francis YC - you have to come by boat to be a guest.
About the Club:
We have a monthly news letter, the Bulletin
, which will keep you informed as to what’s happening.
We are a volunteer club. We generally don’t have paid employees. When we put on a dinner, members do the set-up, the cooking, and the clean up. Every few months, we have a club clean up day. Help is always appreciated.
You are free to bring your guests to the club. Please sign them in the guest log as we are a non-profit corporation and we have to keep records of guests. If you want to use the club for a party or event you need to schedule it with the Member Event Chairperson.
With annual dues of only $400 per year, an active cruising and social schedule, the Stockton Yacht Club is an exceptional value.
Annual Membership Dues = $400 (due each January). One time Initiation Fee = $300 (a one-time fee)`
Great news for New Members! New Members will receive $100 in Stockton Yacht club script. Spend script at the club for dinner, at the bar, and/or at the ships store. This results in an initiation fee net cost of $200!
(Exception: Script cannot be used for catered meals or to pay dues)
When a New Member joins in any other month than January the annual membership dues are prorated. The proration is based on the $400 annual rate and is calculated using the number of months you will be a member for that first year after you are accepted as a new member.
