Join TNYC

Membership Information

TNYC membership is open to the public and applicants are encouraged to complete our application form. There are two types of membership: boating (member holds a wet berth at the marina) and social (member participates in club events and uses club resources but does not require a berth in the marina).

A note on boat size: TNYC is happy to see its membership grow, and we do our best to ensure that membership applications are accepted. Applications by members who have large boats with either an overall length of 35 feet or more or with deep draughts of more than 5’6″ may be difficult to accomodate. We would be pleased to review all applications for memberships, however, and will do our best to accommodate all membership requests.

  2. What will my membership cost? An one time application fee of $150 + HST ($169.50) is charged to join the club. Then every year, a $150 + HST fee is charged to maintain your membership. Any club services availed of (wet berths, crane usage, dry storage, etc.) are charged separately.

  3. Why can’t TNYC accept my membership? TNYC does its best to accommodate all applications for wet berths. If a boat cannot be accommodated, it is likely because of the boat’s size or the lack of a free berth. Larger boats (35+ foot L.O.A, or 5’6″ draught) are difficult to accommodate in the club due to the shallow water and the typical berth dimensions.

  4. Will my application fee be refunded if my boat cannot be accomodated at the club? Yes. If your application is not accepted, your application fee will be returned.

  5. Is there an example of a typical member’s annual fees? A club member who is a social member will only pay $150 per year. Members who have boats with the club, however, will typically rely on various club services for which they will pay additional fees. These fees will vary primarily on:
    • the length of the boat
    • whether the boat is trailerable or requires a crane for lift-in/lift-out
    • whether the boat has one or more masts which requires removal and replacement each season
    • the type of berth assigned (e.g. Floating, Fixed 12′, Fixed 15′, Fixed Breastwork)

    Example: 29′ Sailboat

    Below is an example of the fees charged to a member who has a 29′ sailboat, uses a club berth, uses the club’s crane service at lift-in/lift-out, requires mast removal and replacement, and requires winter storage:

    In this example the total fees payable throughout the year are $1,697.02.

  6. Are there floating berths available? How do I apply for one? Floating berths are assigned on the basis of seniority in the club. Other factors such as the dimensions of the boat may also play a factor in assigning floating berths. Typically, when a floating berth becomes available, the membership is polled for interest and the most “senior” club member will be granted the berth.

  7. How do I find out what berth I have been assigned? Each spring, the chairman of the wharf committee posts a diagram of the berths and the assigned member’s name.

  8. How long can I dry store my boat on TNYCproperty? TNYC can not and will not allow members to keep their boats on TNYC property in dry storage for more than two consecutive summer sailing seasons. Please see the handbook for more information about the club’s by-laws regulating dry storage.
