Reciprocating Clubs

Yacht clubs are invited to send reciprocal information
to our reciprocal chairperson via email,

One nice advantages of being a member of  Rainier Yacht Club is that you can moor at other yacht clubs just as members of other yacht clubs are welcome to moor at out dock. When moored at a reciprocal facility, fly your RYC burgee and have your membership card available. Be prepared to pay for electricity and sometimes a small moorage fee. Register and make a deposit on a key if required and be sure to return it. Check with each club when registering for more detailed information. Remember that you are representing Rainier Yacht Club. 

Click  here  to view a new website with complete reciprocal information.
Yacht clubs have gone electronic. You will find gate codes and contact information for each club or marina. 

Just create a log in as a Rainier Yacht Club member and then you will have access to full information and maps.
