The Inverness Yacht Club (IYC) serves as a base for adult and youth activities in the community, both on and off the water. IYC is an all volunteer organization, relying on its members to keep the club operational. Volunteer service includes every aspect of the Club – tending the facility itself and shepherding it’s social events, involvement in the Racing program as well as the Adult Boating and Youth Sailing programs, contributing to a monthly newsletter (The Pilot), pitching in on work days, helping with our Ships’ Store which sells clothing and related items, and meeting the many other needs of the organization. Every member is expected to participate in some way. The membership is made up of permanent and part-time residents of West Marin, as well as families and individuals who don’t mind the lovely drive to spend time at the Club.

Activities include sailing, kayaking, canoeing, rowing, fishing and just messing around in boats. A sizable amount of time is spent relaxing and socializing with other members and guests. IYC is very much a family oriented organization. Dependent children are treated as part of a membership. One aspect of membership is that couples hold a single membership, but are treated as individuals for purposes of voting and holding office.

The Mission of the IYC Adult Sailing program is to maximize the number of adult sailors at the Club, and to encourage members who do not own boats to sail on our bay. The Adult Sailing Lesson Program is one way for novice sailors to qualify and take advantage of the club owned boats through the Checkout Program.
