The Sea Cliff Yacht Club is one of Long Island’s oldest and friendliest year-round clubs. Situated on Hempstead Harbor, with easy access to Long Island Sound, we offer sailing opportunities and services for all sailors -- from novices right up to the most experienced of sailors. In addition, we offer many of the typical sailing and non-sailing services associated with private social clubs.

The Club holds a series of Membership Open Houses each year. These events are an ideal opportunity to tour the Club, meet current members and learn about all of our programs. You can also contact us at any time by emailing or by calling (516) 671-7374.

All prospective members must be sponsored by two current members of the Club who are in good standing.  Once a prospective member has decided to join the Club, he or she will be sent an application for membership.  That application should be completed in full and returned to the Club with a check for the Annual Dues.  The check will not be cashed until the membership application is approved.

Applications are reviewed by the Club’s board at least once per month, though often more frequently than that. When an application is initially approved, new members receive “First Reading” approval and are issued a membership number.  At this point, the check for the Annual Dues is cashed, an account is established for the new member (who can immediately begin using the Club) and a six-month probationary membership period commences.

Approximately one month later, the application is reviewed by the board. If the application is approved again, “Second Reading” status is granted. And finally, after six months of membership, the probationary period ends and a final approval of membership is granted.
