Manhattan Yacht Club has fostered relationships and connections with many yacht clubs around the world. These reciprocal privileges provide an opportunity for traveling Members to visit clubs on an occasional basis (usually no more than once per year). If you wish to use the facilities of a reciprocal yacht club more frequently, then you should discuss with that club about membership.
To visit one of our reciprocal yacht clubs, protocol requires you to send a written request to the Manhattan Yacht Club office at email@example.com. Our Club will review your request and then forward a “Letter of Introduction” to the reciprocal club in advance of your visit.
If you are a member of a Reciprocal Club visiting Manhattan Yacht Club, please send your Letter of Introduction in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org. Reciprocal privileges entitles other club members to visit our clubhouse in the harbor (open May to October). Use of our club-owned fleet of boats is not included in reciprocal privileges although if you have specific interest in sailing or racing in the harbor, please let us know and we will see if it is possible to connect you with some cruising or racing Members.
