Each year, the Club has a membership renewal period between October and November.  Following the renewal period, the BCYC Board of Directors begins work on compiling all the information needed to produce the BCYC Membership Directory for the following calendar year. 

A copy of the Directory is mailed to each active member, normally in mid-March.

If members want their personal information included in the Directory, February 1st is the deadline for renewing memberships.  (Members who renew their memberships after December 1st may be subject to a late fee).  The Directory is a tremendous publication and a great source for Club and Member information.  Don't miss out on the February 1st deadline!

We’d love to have you join us for a boating season filled with competitive sailing events, cruising rendezvouses, rafting parties, and many other fun-filled, social gatherings all
​year long.
