Visiting Yachtsmen

The Chicago Yacht Club is proud to extend visiting yachtsman privileges to members of most yacht clubs outside of Chicagoland with some exceptions.

Visiting Yachtsmen from reciprocal yacht clubs (50 miles away from CYC) should first contact the Chicago Yacht Club’s front desk at (312)861-7777 for assistance. Once reciprocity is verified, a visitor may request a guest card for the duration of 3 days and 4 nights (only once per month). Visitors must be able to produce a letter of introduction and a valid membership card from their host club as well as a Visa or MasterCard with each visit. Visiting Yachtsmen must respect the rules and traditions of the club.

The Chicago Yacht Club requires letters of introduction for Visiting Yachtsmen. Please email your letter to or fax it to (312)861-9351.
