BECOME A NEW MEMBER OF THE YACHT CLUB
Any individual wishing to become a member of the Yacht Club de Monaco needs to be introduced by two “sponsors”, a proposer and a seconder, who must be both society members of the YCM. All members for more than a year, with exception of board members, are authorised to propose a new applicant to the admissions’ committee.
The candidate needs to fill in an admission form, which is then signed by the applicant and the two sponsors, and must accompanied by a letter of introduction from the proposer.
This letter of introduction will explain the applicant’s motives for joining the Club. Twice a year, H.S.H. Prince Albert II, President of the Yacht Club de Monaco, convenes a meeting for the admissions’ committee to examine the applications.
New members are officially welcomed at a cocktail party to which all existing members of the Yacht Club de Monaco are invited, after which it is customary for the new entrant to celebrate his or her membership at a dinner in the Club restaurant.
