Enjoy reciprocal privileges at over 50 yacht clubs and the amazing camaraderie that that SYC is known for!




One of the benefits as a member of the Squamish Yacht Club is a recipocal moorage agreement with other yacht clubs. You can moor your vessel at low or no cost at many private and public marinas along the British Columbia and Washington coasts with various rules and conditions established by each club. Please follow their rules.

Guidelines for visiting reciprocal clubs:

  • Reciprocal yacht clubs require proof of current membership in the SYC. Carry your current SYC membership card and be prepared to cheerfully present it if required.

  • Some yacht clubs require proof of yacht ownership and liability insurance coverage; be prepared to present this information if requested.

  • Your SYC burgee must be flown while visiting other yacht clubs and in a US courtesy flag should also be flown in US waters.

  • All conditions are subject to change without notice so calling ahead is strongly recommended; many clubs require reservations whereas others do not allow reservations to be made. Slips are very limited and demand is high for guest docks so have alternative plans available. An up to date list with links to each yacht club's website is available on the SCYC website.

  • A master binder is maintained by the Secretary. 

  • Register at the Marina office or Clubhouse of each reciprocal you visit. Yacht Clubs often want you to register even when no payment is required, so they can track club visits.

  • It is appropriate to send a thank you card to reciprocal clubs that you visit, to let them know that you enjoyed their hospitality and that we appreciate their reciprocal agreement with SYC.
