Traveling from out of town?
San Francisco is a ride-sharing community, and there are three apps in particular that we recommend you download before your arrival. All are safe, simple and typically more reliable than taxi cabs.
In order to visit the St. Francis Yacht Club as a guest, a member in good standing must either accompany their guest or pre-arrange a guest card. Regular, Non-Resident, Regular Non-Resident, Special Associate and Honorary Members can arrange guest cards. All unaccompanied guests must register at the Front Desk immediately upon entering the Club to receive their guest card, which grants them access to the Club and the ability to purchase items.
Members may offer their guests a white guest card or a blue guest card.
A white guest card entitles the guest to privileges at the Club with the understanding that they will pay for anything purchased at the Club on their credit card. Guests with a white guest card are also subject to a 15% guest fee for all purchases made at the Club as well as a 20% service fee on all Food & Beverage purchases.
A blue guest card allows the guest to charge their items to the account of the member who has requested their guest privileges.
Members, to set up a Guest Card, contact the Front Desk at 415-563-6363 or email@example.com.
The St. Francis Yacht Club has reciprocal relationships with most accredited yacht clubs and is happy to host their visiting members. The Club employs a 50-Mile Guest Privilege Limitation Statute, which limits guest privileges only to reciprocal members whose yacht club or residence is located outside of a 50-mile radius from the San Francisco Clubhouse or Tinsley Island. Reciprocal members whose yacht club or place of residence falls within 50 miles of the City Clubhouse or Tinsley Island may be granted reciprocal privileges only if they arrive via boat and register at the City Clubhouse docks.
When reciprocal members wish to visit the Club, a letter of introduction must be sent on their behalf from their primary yacht club which confirms that they are a member in good standing and are eligible to be granted guest privileges. The letter of introduction should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Club will require that reciprocal members settle their accounts on a credit card prior to departing.
Any guest visiting the Club for the purpose of attending a private party is welcome to enjoy the room(s) or area where the private event is being held. However, non-member attendees of private parties may not purchase items or dine at the Club unless a sponsoring member has set up a guest card in advance for the purpose.
We also ask that guests of private event adhere to our dress code and electronics policy.
