" 50

Your Yacht Club is one of 36 private, member owned yacht clubs, stretching from Pensacola to Marathon to Jacksonville that are members of the Florida Council of Yacht Clubs. The Council’s mission is to encourage the sport of yachting, promote the science of seamanship, and provide for the entertainment of its members. In addition, FCYC provides guidance on club operations, strategic planning, finance/IRS regulations and club education. You can enjoy social and dining privileges as well as excellent marina facilities at any of the member clubs; some clubs offer golf and tennis as well. Here’s how you can begin enjoying the benefit of that reciprocity: ➢ Locate a member club you would like to visit by viewing the clubs on the Council web site, www.floridacouncilofyachtclubs.com or referring to the Guide to the Clubs by Land and Water, Sold in club ship stores, where you can also purchase your own copy. ➢ Review what each club offers, check days and times of operations, and note contact information for dining or docking reservations. ➢ Provide your member number. You should call each club directly so that nothing gets lost in the translation. ➢ Show your MIYC membership card when you arrive, all charges will be billed to your yacht club account, so be certain that your name and member number are correctly recorded. NOTE: Reciprocity is only for Full and Associate Members. There may be times or days when reservations will not be available, such as during special or member- only events. Some clubs also have restrictions on the frequency of use. First night dockage is free once every thirty days, but expect to pay a daily utility fee. Available slips at each club are limited in number and size, so early reservations are key. Your ReciprocalPrivileges as a Member of a Florida Council Yacht Club!
