The primary FCYC benefit to CHYC members is reciprocity. This is the practice of allowing discretionary use of a Council member club’s facilities by a member in good standing of another member club. In practice, CHYC members can use the facilities of the 36 member clubs for dockage and dining. FCYC reciprocating members can charge expenses at the clubs they visit to their home club.
Other FCYC Benefits
FCYC also serves as the governmental liaison between the yacht club community and various branches and departments of the state and federal governments and legislature.
