Yacht Club Reciprocity may be defined as "A network of Yacht Clubs in agreement for the mutual exchange of privileges within that specific group of clubs." Brownsville Yacht Club has reciprocal privilege agreements with over 95 Yacht Clubs throughout Puget Sound and beyond. Although the extent of privileges may vary, generally, a Brownsville Yacht Club member can expect to be allowed to use all of the welcoming clubs' available facilities and services, including short term berthing, meal and bar service, heads and showers, etc. Typically, a member can stop at a Yacht Club along his way, and if the club visited has a reciprocity agreement with his club he can stay.
Some clubs charge for the first night's berthing, others do not, and it seldom matters whether you come by boat or car. Some Yacht Clubs limit their reciprocal privileges to those coming by boat. It is always a good idea to call ahead to let them know you're coming as well as to determine what services are available. The visitor must settle all personal charges and bills with the visited Yacht Club before departing.
Brownsville Yacht Club uses the Yacht Destinations online database (the link is just below) to keep our members informed about our reciprocal clubs and their facilities.
