Membership Process

We welcome all to join our club. Bay-Waveland Yacht Club is one of the finest, friendliest yacht clubs in the Gulf Yachting Association, as well as around the country. Our facility boasts a breathtaking view of the Bay any time of the day or night. Enjoy your favorite beverage on the back porch before enjoying the dining experience you won’t want to miss. We offer sailing and boating activities, swimming or lounging by the pool, fishing and crabbing off our pier, and the opportunity to just hang out at our inviting club with friends and family. Feel free to stop by and introduce yourself, we will be glad to give you a tour and explain the wonderful benefits of being a member of BWYC.

The process of becoming a member of BWYC is simple.

1. All prospective members must be sponsored by two current members. One of these current members can provide you with a membership application.

2. Please complete the application as directed and return it to the office. Our dues vary based on membership classification. Your application will explain the fee schedule.

3. In order for the Board to review and process your application, it must be received 2 weeks prior to the monthly Board meeting during which it will be reviewed. BWYC Board meetings are held on the 3rd Thursday of each month.

4. Once your application has been approved, the Club will mail you a new member welcome letter. An invoice will be included indicating your dues, initiation fees, and any assessments payable. Once this invoice is paid, you are officially a new member of BWYC, and you can immediately begin enjoying all the benefits of the Club!
