Some clubs are not only expensive, but not so easy to join either. The Seattle Yacht club requires three members in good standing to provide written recommendations, and then you go before a review board and you're put on probation. Your fees are based on your age. 17 yrs old = $330 to join and $75 per month, 40yrs old = $10,000 to join and $125 per month, over 55yrs = $15,000! Sure the club is nice, and kids get to do a lot of racing, but it's hardly worth joining just to get cheaper moorage when you travel.
