Thank you for inquiring about membership in Rappahannock River Yacht Club. We are primarily a Sailing Club but welcome kayaks, Duffys and power boats. We offer three levels of Active Membership plus Junior Memberships for those 9- 20 years old. Our Clubhouse, Pier and Swimming Pool are for Members, Guests, and Visiting Yachtsmen from affiliated yacht clubs.

An Active membership in good standing is entitled to full use and enjoyment of all the Club facilities, including boats available for Membership use, subject to all of the Club policies and rules. An Active membership is entitled to one vote and eligible to serve as an officer or director.

A person between the ages of 9 and 20 may apply for Junior Membership. If the applicant is under the age of 18, the applicant’s parent or legal guardian shall sign the application and shall assume full responsibility for the applicant’s acts and/or omissions occurring during the membership period.

Junior Membership is acquired after the applicant has been nominated by the Junior Sailing Fleet Commander, has been reviewed by the Membership Committee, and has been approved by the Board. An applicant for Junior membership shall agree to participate in Junior Sailing activities throughout the sailing season (April 1 – October 31).
