Yacht Club Memberships

Is there any advantage to having a Yacht Club membership, in particular, when you are traveling outside the U.S and inside as well? I have seen it refered to as advantagous, but not with any particulars. I would be happy to put up the cash is it would be worth it while traveling. Any knowledge would be be greatly appreciated.

WW,

Here's a thread on the topic from a few months ago.

Hud - that link doesn't work for me. I tried doing a search and I see why so many complain about it. Grrrr. Would you check your link please?

You know, the link is correct. What happens is that the server redirects the browser to the discussion board page (I suspect it's probably seeing something (or not) in the "link referrer"). I actually had to do a search for the thread Hud mentions, from the search I was able to get to the thread (which is why I suspect the "referrer", which is most probably a php scripting error).

Thomas,

That's weird! Doesn't work for me, either. The thread is in the General Sailing Forum, dated 27-4-08.

I found it by plugging "Yacht Clubs" into the CF search engine -- Cruisers & Sailing Forum

So do that if all else fails.

All Threads Aside,

My little Yacht Club membership has gotten me into clubs around the world, except for Rio de Janeiro, but they did trade club burgies.

I have recieved free mooring at the Long Beach YC for two nights, full use of clubs in Barcelona, Athens, Grenada, St Maareten and the Cruising Sailors of Australia

I think it is a valuable asset for a cruising sailor, well for me anyway. Sometimes it just nice to put in and enjoy a free shower and a good meal and good conversation. I always carry a spare club burgey to trade and start a conversation.

When I return to my home club, once a year, I trade the traded burgies for new club ones and the stories keep going.

Thanks for the question, I have been waffling on weather to keep my membership or give it up. There's not place like your home club.......even when your away

Cheers
