Our reciprocal slips are located in the East Entrance of Squalicum Harbor close to the Port of Bellingham’s main guest dock at Gate 9. SYC member slips are assigned by phone based on their availability from May 27th–September 30.

Our policy for use of reciprocal slips is as follows:

  • Reciprocal moorage based on availability—must call first.
  • Please fly your yacht club burgee.
  • Do not leave your boat unattended overnight.
  • Fill out our registration form located in the receptacle on our dock boxes.
  • Include $4.00 per night for power usage with your registration.
  • We have six member slips: Five 36′ LOA and One 40′ LOA.

At the time your slip assignment is given, you will also receive the gate code giving you access to the restrooms, showers, and laundry. The receptacle on our dock box also has local information regarding fuel, food, marine supplies, etc.

Our reciprocal committee chair is Steve Glenn.  Please contact Steve with any questions or problems at  (360) 306-1974. Please enjoy your time in our city with its many amenities. We wish you a safe and pleasant cruising season!
