Benefits of membership


For those interested in cruising activities (generally June to September), a schedule should be listed on the website, or you can contact the Rear Commodore.


The racing agenda is set by the Race Fleet Captain. As the NWMA is a PIYA-affiliate, your membership in NWMA qualifies you to captain a multihull in PHRF-NW racing.

Fisheries Supply discount

A significant benefit to current members can be our discount at Fisheries Supply. The discount amount varies on the category of the product — electronics have a lower discount than bottom paint. You will need to create your own Fisheries Supply account, which can be linked to the NWMA discount offer on their site.

In the store it can be difficult to know what your actual price will be. Fortunately, you can now do your price research from home or your smart phone by viewing their website while logged into your account. The items will be displayed with our discount price.
