Thank you for your interest in applying for membership!
Get a taste of what life at the Yacht Club is like. Our feature in the summer 2016 Santa Barbara Magazine showcases all the fun we have on our Wet Wednesday afternoons. See it all here.
Santa Barbara Yacht Club is continuously looking for the next generation of membership candidates to steward the Club through its second century while preserving Club history and tradition dating back to 1872.
Membership consideration is given to individuals who have a demonstrated interest in participating in and promoting the development of yachting in all its aspects, including, and without limitation to, cruising, racing, and angling. Boat ownership is not a requirement for membership.
Applicants must be proposed by one current member and sponsored by two current members, all in good standing. Junior memberships with reduced fees are available to qualified candidates under the age of 35.
