In order to maintain the vibrancy of the membership, we encourage you to bring qualified candidates to the attention of the Membership Committee. Consistent with Seawanhaka’s mission statement, a qualified candidate is one who exhibits a competency and/or an interest in yachting and is a congenial person of good character. Before proposing a candidate, the Sponsor and Seconder must be able to personally attest to the candidate’s meeting these qualifications. Accordingly, the Sponsor and the Seconder should only propose candidates that they know well. Sponsors and Seconders should be Regular members of the Club for no fewer than five (5) years.

Season Membership

All candidates for membership shall be required to first be considered as candidates for our Season Member Program. The purpose of the Season Member Program is to enable the candidate to become involved in Club activities and to get to know a sufficient number of Club members and Board members to move for Regular membership. Depending on the candidate’s success, this may take more than one Season. Below guidelines include additional requirements.

Regular Membership

Commencing with those candidates who were initially Season Members the previous year, new candidates for Regular membership will be reviewed upon completion of the additional requirements. 

All membership paperwork should be sent in one concise file to Director of Member Services, Danielle Brown
Fax: (516) 922-6203
Mail: 314 Yacht Club Road, Oyster Bay, NY 11771
