Visitors Guide

MBYC is now accepting visitors who are coming from clubs that are also accepting reciprocals. If you are on our reciprocal list and your club is accepting visitors, then you are welcome to visit us! Note that our patio bar is currently only open on weekends and our clubhouse is closed aside from bathroom and shower facilities.

Download the list of clubs currently accepting reciprocals as of July 28, 2021.

Interested in visiting MBYC?

As a reciprocal visitor of Macassa Bay Yacht Club, you will be welcome to two free nights, permitting availability of slips and a donation to a charity of choice for subsequent nights. Visitor slips are limited to the number of our members away cruising. Please send an email in advance of your visit to visiting@mbyc-hamilton-org. Deep-water slips (5+ foot draft) are at a great premium so visitors with larger boats should confirm space before heading our way. As you near MBYC, please try to contact our clubhouse at (905) 529-9205 or on VHF channel 68 – although do not be discouraged if no one answers as our clubhouse may still be closed, just speak to a member or officer of the day when you arrive. Guests intending to make use of reciprocals should fly their Club Burgee and will be required to produce a current membership card.

While COVID is still a thing, all visitors to MBYC are required to complete a COVID waiver. You can complete this when you arrive but if possible, please complete it in advance. You can download the waiver here.

Please note that only Regular (full) members of MBYC (blue/white card holders) can take part in this program with reciprocating clubs with whom we are affiliated. Social or associate members of MBYC are not eligible for reciprocal benefits. All reciprocating clubs from previous years are listed below and will remain on the list until withdrawn by that Club in writing or by email. Below is a list of reciprocal clubs. Reciprocal policy information is updated on an ongoing basis as changes occur.

**You can download our visitors guide here**

If you have not been assigned a specific slip, pull into the pump out dock and head to the bar.

Enter the harbour between the buoys, it is rocky on the left of the green and shallow to the right of the red.  **Note for 2021, the channel is buoyed very wide so do not come too close to the buoys, stay middle channel**

Reciprocal list legend:

  • True reciprocal means that the Club matches MBYC Reciprocal Policy – Two nights free
  • # = Received reciprocal letters from Reciprocal Clubs.  Copy of reciprocal letter in Black MBYC Reciprocal Binder for member’s information in upstairs lounge
  • Please note that all Clubs do not send annual reciprocal letters due to agreed upon Perpetual Reciprocal Program adopted in 2015.  Check with the Club to confirm their reciprocal policy and/or their web site.

If you are reading this on a cell phone, for best results turn your phone sideways to view the reciprocal list.
& = Not accepting visitors this season
# = Received reciprocal letters; open to visitors once it is safe to do so
