reciprocal clubs: Most yacht clubs in the Southern California Yachting Association (SCYA) who reciprocate with other yacht clubs in the area will do so on a formal basis. This is typically done through an exchange of reciprocal cards, which are approved and issued on an annual basis. This activity is between two specific clubs who wish to offer the mutual exchange use of their facilities. These reciprocal privileges are not intended to entitle guests "wholesale" use of the other's facility.
