The Noroton Yacht Club membership are sailors who volunteer for our sport and enjoy being on, in, and around the water.
A love of sailing is the primary quality we look for in our new members. That can mean a top-flight one-design sailor with a strong sailing resume, or a club-level sailor who simply wants to race on weekends or cruise, or candidates that would like to learn to sail or expand upon basic sailing skills.
Volunteerism is another key factor and our club depends on people being willing to step forward to help with sailing-related activities, including race management and junior sailing, as well as club operations, entertainment, and tennis.
The Membership Outreach Committee is available to answer questions about the club fleets, programs and membership process. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, with subject heading: NYC Membership with questions.
