Reciprocity with Yacht Clubs
Reciprocity is co-operation or an EXCHANGE of courtesies; this exchange of courtesies may be many or a few. Each club has its own idea of the exchanges. You, as a boater, may wish from time to time to visit yacht clubs along your planned route. When planning your itinerary, include some stops along the way at clubs which offer reciprocity. You’ll find friendly fellow boaters who may make your trip more enjoyable; some may have knowledge of local waters to help you on your way.
Make advance arrangements and fly your Cypress Landing Burgee when arriving at a reciprocal club and offer your CLYC membership card when checking in. The club may ask you what the reciprocity is at your club and offer you the same. There are many different means of reciprocity; i.e., one night berthing free for your boat, a discount in the club dining room, or drinks at the bar, etc.
If you know the clubs you wish to visit, be sure to request a letter of "member in good standing" IN ADVANCE of your trip. We would be happy to accommodate you.
