Monomoy Yacht Club was founded by a group of yachtsmen in 1937. It is incorporated as a non-profit organization under the laws of Massachusetts. The Club seeks to provide activities and fellowship for those with a common love of the water, and enable them to fulfill that interest with others either as active boaters or in social relationships.
The Club maintains a club house at Stage Harbor, Chatham, Massachusetts and is listed in the Register of American Yacht Clubs. The club house, with a beautiful view overlooking Stage Harbor, is the site of many functions throughout the year. Temporary moorings for members and guests may be reserved through the Docks and Moorings Committee. The Club also has a dock for short term use at Stage Harbor Marine.
Major activities are the rendezvous and raft-outs scheduled during the boating season. They are held in both the North and South waters and some are in locations that can be reached by both sea and land.
The Club's social life goes year-round. Popular features are dinners and luncheons for members and their guests held at locations offering a variety of ambiences, and scheduled with seasonal needs in mind. BYOB cocktail parties are held at the club house as well as formal and informal social events involving creativity and fine dining.
Membership is limited to 200. Applicants must have two members as sponsor and co-sponsor, and be interviewed and recommended by the Membership Committee. Final approval is by vote of the Board of Governors. Applicants may then become regular members upon payment of the initiation fee and annual dues.
