|Following the changes to annual subscription levels in December 2012, 'Family Membership' of Howth Yacht Club is now a very attractive proposition for many members and potential members alike.
Family Membership allows one Ordinary, one Associate and unlimited Junior Memberships for the same family.
With the ongoing plans to provide more benefits to HYC members including hospitality discounts, new sailing and powerboat courses, the provision of the J80s and additional social events notwithstanding the success of the Junior Sailing Courses and the top class activities and facilities that are already in place.
The new annual 'Family Membership' rate of 1000 will attract many more families next year and the club expects a significant increase in this recently introduced category. See
