Our boat is currently on Lake Champlain but we're looking to move it to the New London, CT area next season. Ultimately, we'll be starting a 1.5 year cruise, taking us along the east coast of the US, in June of 2009.
Many yacht clubs have reciprocal privileges where we can get a mooring, sometimes at a reduced cost or no cost, along our way. We're wondering
if it would make sense to look at joining a yacht club when we bring our boat to the Connecticut coast.
I grew up around American Yacht Club in Rye, NY. I understand the social aspects, but I have no clue as to the cost of a membership at a club (initial fee, monthly fees or commitments). Can anyone enlighten me?
Also, does anyone have a recommendation of a club in the New London area that may have reciprocal privileges with a lot of other clubs? I know you normally have to be "invited" to join, but I'm hoping to call them up to ask to be "invited".
