CRUISING

SO MANY GREAT DESTINATIONS TO VISIT AND EXPLORE BY WATER. WHY NOT SIGN UP AND COME ALONG ON OUR NEXT CRUISE TOGETHER.

Cruise Time/Date Sign-Ups

The cruise sign–up sheets will be posted on the Fleet Bulletin Board at the Club by 1800 at least five Monday’s in advance of the identified cruise.  Said sign-up sheet will remain posted until approximately 1800 two Monday’s in advance of the cruise.

Cruise Fee

Cruise fees may vary with each cruise. The posted cruise fee must be included (preferably a check) with the sign-ups. Place the fee in an envelope and place it in Fleet Mailbox. “No fee, no reservation”

Cruise Priorities

If the number of cruise sign-ups exceeds the number of boats that can be accommodated at the cruise destination, those who signed up first will have priority, as long as they have paid. For those remaining, we will try to make alternative arrangements and/or they may remain wait-listed in case of cancellations. If you signed up and didn’t pay, your name will be dropped to the bottom of the list below those who have paid, and therefore you will be wait-listed until payment is received.

Cruise Cancellations/Refunds

If more sign-ups are received beyond what can be accommodated, refunds will be given. If you must cancel, and expect a refund, you must cancel by phone to the Fleet Captain no later than 1800 on Monday prior to cruise.

Cruiser’s Compass

A more detailed cruise itinerary, the Cruisers Compass, will be e-mailed to each cruiser on said cruise no later than the Monday preceding each cruise. With the Cruisers Compass you will also receive a cruisers roster. This information is to be protected and be used only for the people within our Club.

Communicate, Communicate, Communicate

Remember that when you sign-up to leave on a cruise your slip may be used by another visiting club boater. Any and all changes you make must be communicated to the Fleet Captain and Dock Master.

Behavior

All Cruisers are expected to follow not only DWYC House Rules, but also the House Rules of each yacht club we visit. Remember, we are guests at each of our cruise locations and our behavior reflects on our club.

The Dana West Yacht Club board of Directors has carefully examined and approved these procedures. We believe it will be fair for all and be easy for all cruisers to follow. If “glitches” come to our attention we will do our best to fix them.
