Application for Junior Membership

The Privateer Yacht Club is a non-profit organization, incorporated under the laws of the State of Tennessee. We operate a non-power boat harbor and do not provide permanent dockage for power boats.

Junior membership is open to sailors Ages 8 to 25 years old. Children of Family and Associate members living at home are considered to be Junior members. Otherwise to become a Junior member you must submit an application and a check for $39.33 annual dues (which includes $35 membership plus TN sales tax). The purpose of the Junior Membership is to provide affordable access to the club grounds and facilities at an early age.

Benefits of Junior Membership:

  • Be listed on PYC’s membership roster and receive monthly issues of The Private Ear, our monthly newsletter, and all club announcements.
  • Have access with user name and password to the members only section of the PYC web site.
  • A Junior Member may get qualified to sail Club owned Sailboats. They and any friends or crew must wear a type 111 PFD at all times when on the docks or sailing. (Note: A Junior Sailor under the age of 18 must be supervised by an adult PYC Member at all times while on the property or when sailing either a club or privately owned sailboat. The club has a check-off procedure which qualifies members to use club owned boats, and this also applies to Junior Members. Being in Sail Camp still requires a check-off to sail Club owned sailboats.
  • A Junior Member may apply and pay for 1 dry slip boat storage space but cannot lease a wet slip mooring.
  • At age 21 a sailor may apply for Associate Membership and once they are accepted as a Family Member they can apply and pay for a wet slip mooring. (Associates Members cannot lease a wet slip mooring)
  • Once a junior member reaches the age of 25 they must become an Associate member to continue their PYC membership status.
  • Junior Members may not schedule the use of the clubhouse for functions. This can be accomplished by having a PYC Family Member apply for it and be on site during the function.
  • Junior Members must conform to all the rules, regulations and by laws set forth by Privateer Yacht Club.

The following is an application for Junior Membership. The form may be printed, mailed or submitted to the PYC Membership Chairman or placed in the appropriate mail box located in the Regatta Room.
