Reciprocal

We are a yacht club hosted by the privately owned Collins Bay Marina. The Marina is located at the head of Collins Bay, five nautical miles west of Kingston. Through the generosity and cooperation of Collins Bay Marina, we are able to participate in the reciprocal program. It is the Marina staff who greet and assign visitors to available slips. The Yacht Club itself owns no slips, and is therefore limited in the number of reciprocating slips which can be made available.

The layout of the Marina is given in a harbour chart.

Reciprocal Clubs:

As with many other Clubs CBYC has adopted a perpetual reciprocal Poilcy.  We no longer send out annual invitations to other clubs.

See the listing of current Reciprocal Clubs.

Reciprocal Agreement:

  • One (1) free night of docking (in any 7-day period) is available to visiting members of reciprocating clubs in the vacant slips of signed-out CBYC members.
  • Reciprocal slips are assigned on a first come, first served basis and may not be reserved.
  • Reservations are accepted for paid slips, in which case reciprocal privileges will be offered for the second night, if space is available.
  • Requests for reciprocal privileges must be made upon arrival. (Refunds will not be granted to those requesting reciprocal privileges after a slip has been paid for).
  • Additional nights are charged at the prevailing transient rate.
  • Visitors must arrive within the hours of operation of the Marina, which are as follows:
    • Summer Hours: Sunday to Thursday 8 to 6; Friday and Saturday 8 to 7.
    • Off Season (Spring & Fall) Hours: 9 to 5 daily.

When you arrive, please:

  • Register by contacting Collins Bay Marina staff who monitor VHF Channel 68.
    Marina staff will meet you at the gas dock, located at the end of the break-wall near the entrance to the harbour.
  • Present a current membership card in a recognized reciprocating club. See listing of recognized¬† Reciprocating Clubs
  • Fly your club burgee.

Facilities at the Marina include power and water at each slip, washrooms, gas, diesel, pump-out and ice. A mast crane and 65-ton crane are also available on-site.
