*Reciprocity Between Clubs
Questions often arise about issues of reciprocity between yacht clubs and the role of PICYA with respect to this matter.
There are 108 yacht clubs and boating organizations in PICYA, each unique in size, structure, membership interests, and facilities. Therefore, it must be the responsibility of each club to develop its own program of activities and its own policies and procedures about reciprocity with other clubs.
There is nothing automatic about reciprocal privileges despite the fact that uninformed
individuals and organizations pass this word along. While we believe that all our member clubs have a spirit of sportsmanship and friendliness toward other boaters, we support every club’s right and responsibility to establish its own policies with respect to visiting privileges. Reciprocity is a privilege, not a right.
Visiting Protocol and Courtesies of Clubs
Under no circumstances should a member assume that all yacht clubs are reciprocal and before requesting entrance, you should check with our General Manager and the club you intend to visit.
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 stationery will help to allow you access to their club for a one time visit.
Guidelines for Members visiting other clubs
1. Verify that you have reciprocal privileges – contact the GM.
2. 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.
3. When making arrangements ask about club and marina rules such as allowing pets, parties, electrical service, etc.
4. Always sign the guest register.
5. Always have a current membership card from your clubs and be prepared to show it.
6. Wear a nametag from your club or sign a ‘stick-on badge’ from the club.
7. Ask for a copy or location of club rules and observe them, you are a guest.
8. Patronize the facilities of the club. They may have brought in extra staff just for your visit.
9. Under no circumstances board or make fast to any vessel without permission. Do not use any equipment left on the dock.
10. Always follow good environmental practices consistent with concerns for proper waste disposal and discharges from your vessel. Leave a clean wake.
Most clubs want you to enjoy your visit to their facility.
Traditional yachting protocol, courtesy, and a thank you goes a long way in fostering good relations between clubs.
