Cruise Time & Date Sign-Ups

The cruise sign–up sheets for the 2018 Cruise Calendar will be posted on the Fleet Bulletin (north side of Fireplace) starting February 13, 2018 and will be removed for cruise coordination two weeks before the cruise date.

Cruise Fee

The 2018 Cruises are a benefit of Club Membership, however, on occasion there are extra costs for bands, activities, tours, performances, etc., that may cost an additional fee to participate.  In those cases, 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.  Please be sure to include your name and boat name on the check or envelope so that you are credited with payment.  Please remember, “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 two Mondays prior to cruise.

A Message From The DWYC Fleet Captain:

Thank you for allowing me to be your 2018 Fleet Captain!  We have many exciting things planned for the 2018 Cruising season and I know we are going to make so many fun memories!   If you have any questions on the Fleet calendar, the cruises or would like to volunteer for all or part of a cruise or event, please feel free to call or email me.   Otherwise, be on the lookout for updates and developments over the course of the season through Lines & Bits, emails and around the club!

See you at the club and on the water,

2018 Fleet Captain, Hydee Riggs

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.


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.


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.
