Why join?

Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron knows there is nothing better than finding a home away from home. A community of people, who like you are looking to get the most out of life – in their friendship and professional lives, through to the opportunity to be part of a crew on our race days and our vibrant social events.  A family friendly environment in which you can relax and enjoy a beautiful meal overlooking the picturesque Port Phillip and Melbourne city.

So why not come down and join us? See for yourself why our members tell you “there is no place quite like RMYS”.  You will also receive a free drink on your birthday.

The membership process

All applications must be proposed and seconded by current Full Members, or be accompanied by two written character references. Your name will then be displayed on the club’s noticeboard for a period of two weeks.

Prospective members attend a membership meeting, where they will be given information about the club including their rights, responsibilities, and, if applicable, an access key fob. Once prospective members have submitted their completed application and nomination form, the office will let you know the date and time of the next membership meeting.

Junior and absentee members are not issued with an access fob.
