If ever there was a difference between "yachting" and "cruising" the dress code would be at the top of the list.
People "yachting" worry about such things, so they can judge others at a glance.

So my collection of Armani suits is out? I was planning on cutting down to about a dozen or so. I'll have to make a trip to Brooks Brothers

...so far there's only been one post this thread that's been at all judgmental.

You wouldn't want to embarrass yourself by dressing like that around real sailors. The same goes for long sleeved shirts with wide horizontal stripes. If you are going to dress like this anyways, you might as well walk around with fenders tied to your belt loops.

My Dear Anjou

I was going to move my post over to your other one...but you beat me to itby coming over here. Having worked as paid crew on a couple of yachts the occasions do come up when you have to be dressed up.

There are a couple of things you need to do when you carry clothes like that aboard. Make sure the shoes are in a ventilated area. Put your jacket and pants in a hanging bag. This keeps things from chafing/wearing as the boat moves.

The Captain and I also have "Uniforms" with the shoulder boards and all that stuff....for when the "BOSS" is having a business meeting aboard.

The owners appreciate it.

I would be proud to be a "Plank Owner" of the N.C.H.C

Unless you're an 'officer' at a yacht club, I'd avoid dressing like one. It borders on being a 'costume'. Unless of course, you're old. Old folks can pull it off.

And leave the captains hat for the Skipper to beat Gilligan.

There is a Afro American Yacht Club in Maryland called the Neptune Yacht Club

They do a lot of Charity work...Cruise for Kids...and other things....when they show up for an event....they look sharp....nothing "costumey" about it.

I think I can tell a cruiser from a human being. And is PINK really the only color one can have those disgusting Crocks in???

Pink Crocks go very well with a navy blazer though.
