WYC Membership Form

Sign up for an annual or quarterly membership with the Washington Yacht Club. WYC memberships are $39 per quarter or $100 annually for students and $80 per quarter or $225 annually for non-students.

If you graduated, you do not count as as student.

UW Recreation Department is requiring that all WYC members hold an IMA membership (now known as Rec membership) in addition to a WYC membership in order to access facilities/docks at the Waterfront Activities Center. The IMA membership is typically included in a UW Seattle student's tuition. For summer quarter, unless taking classes, UW students will need to purchase a IMA membership.

Check if you have an Rec/IMA membership here.

For UW Employees and UW Retirees, you are eligible to purchase IMA memberships for $120 per quarter or $390 per year. For others, you can be paired with an IMA membership holder to receive a Plus One IMA membership for $96 per quarter if paired with a student or $126 per quarter if paired with an employee.

For more information about IMA memberships visit Rec Membership | Recreation ( WYC memberships follow Rec/IMA membership expiration dates
