That’s a common misperception. While your card may get you a spot on a guest dock at some yacht clubs, it won’t get you into a guest slip or bar at many extremely popular destinations in the Americas or Europe. You may need to know a mamber of the club to invite you as a guest. Unless your club has a formal reciprocity agreement with another club, your request for a guest slip may be politely declined.My Card will allow us into Any Club in the World [for all practical purposes]
Just an FYI here. Traditional yacht clubs are a type of non-profit, mutual-benefit corporation. Instead of selling shares as in a regular corporation, yacht clubs essentially sell memberships. The price of goods sold to members, including beverages and meals, has nothing do with the club's non-profit status, although a BOD may decide to zero-out the club's income/expenses every fiscal year, which some do. Profit means, or refers to, goods or services sold to non-members. It does not refer to an increasing cash position, year by year of income over expense, selling stuff to its members. In some states, non-profits, including yacht clubs, may be allowed a certain small percentage of sales to derive from non-members b/f it is taxed as PROFIT. This is especially so if it is considered "business-related income", such as money earned by sponsoring a public boater's swap meet, etc., or by charging the public for Boater Education classes or Safety at Sea classes, etc. The situation with "guests" (i.e., non-members) varies from state to state. In some states, or at some clubs, such as in TX and FL, members' guests cannot buy beverage/meals from the Club. The member has to purchase for his/her guests. The situation may be a little different, however, if the Club is hosting a regatta or the "guests" are reciprocals.The MSYC is a non profit, so food, drink, storage, etc are all affordable.
Even a credit card won’t get him into a lot of private clubs! At my club, you need to be a guest of a member, or a member of a club with reciprocal privileges to buy a drink or a sandwich. Otherwise, the club would lose its license to sell liquor. It would also affect the clubs tax status.I assume you mean your credit card....

My, my I sure upset a few with my statement!I really wonder what this means. Many of these yacht-club folks are international sailing champions; even Olympians. The other week I was visiting the LA Yacht Club and saw this marvelous picture of Humphrey Bogart sailing his schooner Santana here off California. These crude, negative generalities are not what thoughtful discussions are made of. If there is something up the butt here, I wonder if it might not be a part of your own anatomy.
