The membership of the Stillwater Yacht Club is comprised of members of the Beach & Tennis Club who believe in the Yacht Club’s purpose to “promote recreation, education, and sportsmanship and yachting” in Stillwater Cove and Carmel Bay.

The Benefits of Membership

Becoming a member of the Stillwater Yacht Club is like joining a society of like minded people. The beauty of Stillwater Cove and Carmel Bay are enjoyed by each of us and serve as the perfect backdrop to our endeavors.

Through the efforts of our incredible member volunteers, the Club boasts a bustling social calendar throughout the year which includes live musical performances, winemaker’s dinners, theme parties, formal dances and family affairs. Such events enable our members to come together to celebrate the uniqueness of our area and the camaraderie that is inherent within the Club.

Sailing on Carmel Bay, alone or with other Stillwater Yacht Club members, is the experience of a lifetime. The scenic vistas from Point Lobos to Cypress Point are breathtaking and not to be missed. Young sailors are exposed to the fundamental of water sports and sailing through the Youth Sailing program. Adults also have opportunities to hone their sailing skills through Thursday night sailing events and the use of the Club’s fleet of small sailboats.

As a member, you gain access to reciprocal yacht and private clubs around the world. By being a member here, you gain access to clubhouses out there.

Stillwater Yacht Club membership is constantly welcoming in new individuals who are members of the Beach & Tennis Club at Pebble Beach, and who will contribute to our community.
