2023 Reciprocal Agreement
RNYC & Crow’s Nest Officers’ Club


RNYC Commodore Capt. Kris Drodge and Crow’s Nest President Dave Paddon

RNYC members and friends,

On behalf of both the RNYC and Crow's Nest Executive Committees, we are pleased to announce that during 2023 both Clubs will share a reciprocal agreement so that members from both Clubs can avail of each others dining facilities. This will help strengthen the historic community that both The Crow’s Nest and The RNYC have been part of over the last century. The Crow’s Nest Officers’ Club, founded in 1942, shares similarities with the Royal Newfoundland Yacht Club, founded as the Avalon Yacht Club in 1936. Both are member and volunteer driven; both are keenly aware and have a responsibility for maintaining and celebrating sailing and maritime tradition; and both are strongly focused on building a community amongst its membership.

We hope that this agreement produces a long-lasting relationship within both Clubs and we look forward to this upcoming year and what it will bring. We will host a dinner at the club to welcome guests from the Crow's Nest in the coming months.

This is also an excellent opportunity to remind the Membership of the RNYC that as a member of a Club with a Royal distinction there are many reciprocating Yacht Clubs throughout the world that will welcome you into their facilities as a reciprocating member, even when not arriving on a vessel. These often require proof of membership or a letter, which the Club Manager can help provide. This is part of being a member of the Royal Newfoundland Yacht Club and I strongly suggest any member that finds themselves in a city with a Royal Yacht Club to avail of this privilege, as I and many of us have done over the years.

Attached you will find a letter with similar writing as above, plus the conditions of the Reciprocal Agreement.

Calm seas and full sails,
Capt. Kristopher Drodge
Commodore, RNYC
