Guidelines for Clubs
Verify that you have reciprocal privileges.
Call ahead to ensure that space is available, your visit will not conflict with other club functions, and to make arrangements early in the year for a club cruise.
When making arrangements ask about club and marina rules such as allowing pets, parties, electrical service, etc.
Always sign the guest register.
Always have a current membership card from your club and be prepared to show it.
Wear a nametag from your club or sign a ‘stick on badge’ from the club.
Ask for a copy or location of club rules and observe them as a guest.
Patronize the facilities of the club. They may have brought in extra staff and food just for your visit.
Under no circumstances board or make fast to any vessel without permission. Do not use any equipment left on the dock.
Always follow good environmental practice consistent with concerns for proper waste disposal and discharges from your vessel. Leave a clean wake.
These reciprocal privileges are not intended to entitle guests unlimited use of the other’s facility.
Under no circumstances should a yachtsman assume that all yacht clubs are reciprocal and before requesting entrance, you should check with the club.
If visiting a yacht club in another state, first call the club and ask what is needed for you to visit. Usually a letter of introduction from your Commodore on yacht club stationary will help to allow you access to their club for a one time visit.
The large national organization that you may want to join or check out is Yachting Club of America and they use the Register of American Yacht Clubs as their reciprocal guide as well as most east coast clubs.
Most clubs want you to enjoy your visit at their facility. Traditional yachting protocol, courtesy and a thank you goes a long way in fostering good relations between clubs.
