Admission Process

Membership is dependent on your age, residential address, boat ownership and what services will fulfill your needs. If you would like to discuss your membership options or have any queries with regard to your application form, please contact our Membership Administrator who will help you on the right path.

Complete the Membership Application Form

Simply fill in the membership application form (available from Reception) and return it with the appropriate payment to the Squadron or alternatively click here.


Two RQYS current financial members are required to propose and second your nomination for membership. If you do not know anyone to do this, a meeting can be organised with a member of Membership Committee and Provisional membership is then offered for the first 12 months. This meeting takes approximately 15 minutes and is an enjoyable opportunity to meet one of the familiar faces around the Squadron. Temporary Membership will be issued when you lodge your application so that Squadron facilities are available to you immediately and access into our grounds is available by obtaining a temporary access pass until your membership application is formally approved.

Formal approval Process

Depending on the date of application, approval of your membership can take up to 6-8 weeks. Your membership application will:
1. Go to Membership Committee for approval. (Membership Committee meet on the 1st Thursday of the month) and then;
2. Be presented to General Committee for final approval. (General Committee meet on the last Thursday of the month)

You will then be notified of your acceptance to membership and be invited to a New Members Welcome night upon your approval.
