How to become a member

Membership can be broken down into 3 main areas: Fleet, Class, and Club Membership.
  • Fleet Membership is $100 per race season (which can be reduced with volunteer time if approved). Dues are paid to the local fleet treasurer and are used for social events, promoting the fleet, and communication.  To pay your dues for this season, make your checks payable to: J24 Fleet 26. Mail to: Harry Dursch 5459 Pleasure Pt Ln SE, Bellevue, WA 98006, ph:425-747-4065.
  • Class Membership for 2018 is $75 for Skippers or Helmsman, and $35 for Associate.  Skipper/Helmsman membership is required in order to compete in certain qualifying regattas.  Associate membership is not required, but does help the US National Class gain more votes for holding the J24 Worlds in the US and provides an opportunity for more local boats to participate when the event is held in the US.
  • Club Membership varies on initiation and annual dues, but is required after the 1st year of racing. J24 Skippers wishing to race on Tuesday nights, must belong to either Corinthian Yacht Club, or Seattle Yacht Club, after their 1st year of racing. Since the Tuesday night races are sponsored by Corinthian Yacht Club, discounts on races and race packages are available to it’s members. Seattle Yacht Club members will pay slightly higher fees (guest rates) for the Tuesday nights or other Corinthian Yacht Club sponsored races. Corinthian Yacht Club of Seattle Membership Information
