The Rudder Club

Perhaps the best kept secret in Jacksonville, Florida, the Rudder Club is found tucked away under a canopy of giant oak trees along the west bank of the St. Johns River.

MEMBERSHIP CATEGORIES

Membership categories are defined by our bylaws

  • Charter members are for households including children up to the age of 18 living at home. Charter members are full owner-members of the clubs. You will have voting rights and also responsibilities for running and maintaining the club. You may store boats on the grounds or on the dock (for a fee, of course). There is a $250 one-time initiation fee and monthly dues of $76.27 per month (2017 rates).
  • Young adult members are for adults 18 years old up to the time of their 26th birthday. Young adults are not voting members, and these are single-person memberships. Young adult members may store boats on the grounds or the dock. Young adult members have initiation and monthly dues half that of a charter member.
  • Non-resident members must reside outside a 50-mile radius of the club. Non-resident members are not voting members. They may store boats in dry storage on a space available basis, but are not allowed to rent slips on the dock.
  • Junior members are a very limited membership for young people up to the age of 18 who wish to participate in the twice-a-month junior sail activities held in the Spring and Fall.

Charter and young adult members are expected to run the club events and help maintain the facility. Members in other categories are invited to help in some way, as best they can.
