Join the Yacht Club

Invitation: Laguna Woods Yacht Club is eager to welcome new members into our socially-oriented nautical club. Whether you are a current, former, or arm-chair sailor, you are equally welcome here.

You need not own your own boat; your membership fees entitle you to sail on our sloop as often as you like, subject to availability. Please browse the Events Calendar to read more about our activities. Feel free to join us at our next monthly meeting to check things out. We meet the fourth Friday of most months at 10:00 AM, at Clubhouse 3, a.k.a. the Performing Arts Center, with new member orientation beginning at 9:30 AM.

Eligibility: Yacht club members must reside in Laguna Woods Village, CA, or be initially sponsored by a current resident member of the Yacht Club. Laguna Woods Village is a community for adults age 55 and older. Prospective members are asked to fill out a membership application and also to sign the insurance waiver.

Dues: Annual membership fees are $150 for 2018. Dues are payable upon joining, and at the beginning of each calendar year for continuing members. Members are entitled to participate in all club activities, including unlimited day sailing (subject to availability) on Hiatus, our club-owned Catalina 30′ yacht, currently berthed at Dana Point Harbor.

We don’t offer partial year memberships. However, if you join after September 30 of the current year, your membership will be valid until Dec. 31 of the following year.

Insurance Waiver: The Hiatus carries comprehensive nautical insurance. Our insurance carrier requires a signed release form for all members wishing to participate in day sailing. Customarily, this is done at the time of membership application but may be subsequently completed aboard the vessel if it should become necessary. All new members must sign the release form.

Membership Application: Our membership application can be downloaded by clicking this button:
