 INTRODUCTION
 

The Florida Council of Yacht Clubs is an organization made up of 36 yacht clubs
located around the state from the panhandle to the keys.

The member clubs in the Council represent a population of approximately 37,300
voters who have aided in bringing many legislative matters, favorable to the boating
public, to a successful conclusion. To assist the Council in monitoring boating related
legislation the Council has a legislative representative in Tallahassee, paid for by the
Council. Established in 1960, the Council is a respected force recognized as a potent
organization of dedicated yachtsmen.

The Council Clubs sponsor cruises on members’ boats to destinations along the East
and Gulf Coasts of Florida and the Bahamas. The Council has also sponsored
professionally organized large ship cruises to unique locations in Europe, South
America, through the Panama Canal, and many other destinations.

The Council is an active member of water oriented organizations such as the National
Boating Federation. Close liaison is maintained with the U.S. Coast Guard in St.
Petersburg, Tampa, Jacksonville, Miami and the Corp of Engineers district office
in Jacksonville.

The Council publishes the “Guide to the Clubs by Land and Water.”  It gives directions
to each club by car or boat, the types of services offered and the hours that they are
available. The Guide also includes a CD containing all of the information in the book.
Boaters get the first night of dockage free. Reciprocal charges are billed through their
own club.
