I know several people who are avid seasonal sailors in the PNW, who maintain yacht club memberships almost exclusively for the reciprocal rights at marinas
. The clubs they belong to mainly have reciprocal rights with other West Coast
clubs, so not much use to us in our planned 3-year circumnavigation
as we will be in the med, Caribbean
, etc. I just about choked when I saw the marina prices in these places. Looks like we’ll be almost exclusively anchoring
Do any other circumnavigating folks maintain a yacht club membership
purely for reciprocal marina privileges? Is this even possible on a global or regional (non-US) basis? Is it worthwhile?
