HomeTransients

Please review the Reciprocity tab in the Visitors section to first see if you are eligible to stay at SIYC as a transient.  Being the Friendliest Yacht Club on the Bay, we love visitors from other yacht clubs with whom we have reciprocal agreements.

Authorized visitors can submit your dockage request electronically by filling out the form located here SIYC Transient Form and emailing it to siyc@comcast.net.  

Below are some things to consider in your planning and after you arrive.

We have a good Marina Schematics available in the Visitors section to help you arrive safely.
 
From Pier Rules & Regulations
Revised February 2018
 
  7. Transients must be affiliated with a Yacht Club
which accepts transient visits from SIYC boats, or has been
extended Club privileges by the Commodore or Board.
Available slips or pier space may be rented to them at a rate
of $1.75 per foot per day, to include water, plus a charge of
$7 per day per 30-amp electrical connection or $12 per day
per 50-amp connection. The Pier Chairman is authorized to
give a discount of 20 to 40% for extended stay transients (one
week to one month respectively). Each transient captain is
required to fill out a “Transient Log and Payment Record,”
available in the Captain’s Lounge. Each transient captain
is entitled to two (2) drinks at no additional charge. U.S.
Government vessels will be accommodated at no charge
when space is available.

  8. Transients affiliated with a Yacht Club or those who
have been extended Club privileges by the Commodore
or Board may tie their boats at the SIYC pier for a short
time (not to exceed four hours) only if adequate personnel
remain on the premises in case their boat must be moved.

  9. Dockside connections (electrical pigtails and water
hoses) and adequate mooring lines will be provided by
users. Lines will not extend across the pier or finger piers.
Electrical lines must be of proper marine standard and
correct polarity. Dockside storage boxes are not allowed.
If a power cord is left at the slip when the boat will be gone
for any period of time, it must be disconnected from the
electrical outlet.

  10. Water for cooling boat air conditioners will not be
drawn from the pier water spigots.

  11. Open fires for cooking are not permitted on the pier
or aboard boats secured to the pier. 

  14. All transients and annual lessees must have minimum
liability insurance coverage of at least $300K.  Lessees
should provide a certificate of insurance with their annual
payment.  Transients will be asked to certify on the rental
agreement that they have the required insurance and should
be prepared to provide proof on request.
