Kayaking and Canoeing

Join The PYC!

Kayak & Canoe Memberships

Social memberships are ideal for individuals or couples who usually do not own a powered vessel, but wish to store a kayak at the club for quick access to the river. This can save you hours of time throughout the season, allow you to use our showers before heading to work, and the hassle of mounting the kayak on your car. The club is close to black creek, Esopus Island, Norrie ledges, Vanderbuilt, Esopus meadows, and two light houses.  Note: If you are looking to own a power or sail boat at the club, click HERE.

Thank you for showing an interest our club. Please fill out the following 'Social Membership' form (below) if you are applying for Social Membership to the Poughkeepsie Yacht Club. Upon review of your application/inquiry, a Membership Committee Representative will be in contact with you.

Within each such social group, a feeling of solidarity prevails, a compelling need to work together and a joy in doing so that represent a high value.
