Note: Change happens so if you are intending to use your reciprocal privileges please check here first. Clubs displaying *Updated* have made changes that will not be available in your Yearbook.

When visiting reciprocal clubs, please remember to complete either:

  • the online reciprocal feedback form available at the reciprocal feedback tab or
  • the reciprocal survey form available at the club house and return to the Club Manager after each cruise.

While cruising, if you find any of the reciprocal information to be incorrect please add corrections to the feedback forms in order for us to ensure our information is correct and up to date.

We rely on your assistance to help us create the most accurate reciprocal data possible, as well as provide useful information when discussing reciprocal club renewals on an annual basis.

It is important to remember that reciprocal privileges apply to the yacht club’s home marina/moorage and never applies to outstations. The address of the yacht club is included in the information below and no outstations are included. If you dock at an outstation you will not be allowed to stay so please do not make such a request from any club. The following list may be incomplete, but does contain information pertaining to most MBYC Reciprocal clubs in our cruising area.
