Seattle Singles Yacht Club is comprised of single adults who love boating. Unlike most yacht clubs, we do not maintain a clubhouse, nor require any initiation fee to join. Membership consists of experienced boaters as well as those who just love getting out on the water. Boat ownership is not a requirement.
The group was organized in 1991 by a group of singles who wanted to meet other single adults who loved boating. Since some of the founders were sailboat owners, the club was originally called Seattle Singles Sailing Club. As the club grew and more skippers bought power boats, the club’s name was changed to reflect the diversity of boat ownership. However, the club’s burgee still displays a sailboat to reflect the club’s origins.
As a non-profit, we look forward to supporting our favorite charity—Northwest Harvest—by hosting a race, auction, dinner and dance each fall. Through our support, Northwest Harvest has purchased over one million meals for hungry local families.
Throughout the year we organize a variety of events that encourage members to socialize, relax, meet other members–and most importantly–to have fun. Events include sailing, power boating, whale watching, raft ups, happy hours, house parties, pig roasts, wine tastings, Halloween costume contests, watching the Christmas ships by boat and more.
Every January a new board of volunteers takes over official duties to keep the Club running smoothly. See this year’s event here: COMMODORE’S BALL
