Looking for yacht club membership sponsor

I am seeking a sponsor so I can join the Arundel Yacht Club. If you are a member or know one I'd love to talk to you about it. Thank you. Arundel, ME

Just curious, why are you looking for a membership in a club so far from your location? If you were more local to the club, I'd recommend that you visit it and meet the people there in person to get a chance at a sponsor.

I'd point out that most people would not be willing to sponsor someone for membership if they have not actually met or known the person in question.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I agree with Dog. I am a trustee at Centerboard YC in South Portland and we require 2 sponsors(one of which can be the membership committee person) and we interview every applicants. We also try to determine if the applicant is just marina shopping as our rates tend to be lower than most. We are a member run and maintained club. No absentee owners.

And why ask here. There are no live-aboards at AYC.

If you're interested in joining and you're legitimately intent on being an active, contributing member, why not simply get in contact with the club secretary and/or membership chair. With the current economic climate a lot of yacht clubs are encouraging the membership committee to make introductions to allow candidates the opportunity to meet existing members who may be willing to sign an application for them.

Another question, what attracts you to Arundel in particular? Do you have property in the area? There are many other yacht clubs along the Maine coast, more conveniently located for cruising the anchorage-laden areas of Casco, Muscungus, and Penobscot Bays. Some other options would be Rockland, Portland, Boothbay Harbor, etc... There are some even cheaper than Arundel if you look around.

So what makes Arundel appeal?
