“Introducing the YPY Alumni Network. We look forward to staying in touch with former members to continue the YPY spirit and values.”
Robert van Tol – International Board Member
Anyone who has been a part of YPY understands the strong bonds that form while learning and growing together in the yachting industry. A love for YPY runs deep among our members. And likewise, we deeply value our members, both past and present.
The YPY Alumni Network has been created to carry forward the ethos of YPY. It is a way for former members to keep in touch once they age-out of traditional YPY membership, which terminates at the end of the calendar year (December 31) in which the member turns 40. Thus, the alumni status applies to former YPY members over 40 years old who have been a member for at least one full year.
The Alumni Network is not a new membership status, but rather an informal way for former members to stay involved with YPY. Alumni are invited to attend select events at their former chapters, paying a per-event entry fee with a rate determined by that chapter.
