The member is fully responsible for the actions of said individuals and any consequences resulting from their inappropriate actions will be levied on the member.

A clubhouse member may not vote on any club matters nor hold office in the Club and has no marine privileges. Specifically, “Clubhouse” stipulates that the individual’s membership is confined to the Clubhouse and its social activities and does not extend to the area below the gate.

HOW TO APPLY
Anyone wishing to apply for a Boating Membership must hold a paid-up Clubhouse Membership and have the sponsorship of a current Boating Member in Good Standing. Applicants without a Sponsor will be passed over for those with a Sponsor. Once accepted, a Boating Member is on probation for one year.
