Bremerton Marina in Port Orchard, Wash., recently announced the launch of a new program — the Olympic Peninsula Cruising Club — that allows new tenants signing up in 2014 reciprocal rights at three Puget Sound locations.

Current tenants will be grandfathered into the program. Reciprocal rights and yacht club outstations have long been one of the prized benefits of yacht club membership.

With the new program — which Bremerton Marina is calling the “un yacht club” —marina tenants can choose from three locations: the Home Port Marina in Pleasant Harbor, Port Hadlock Marina and Emerald Yachts in Gig Harbor.

With these three locations, Cruising Club members will be able to explore South Sound, Central Sound and Northwest Puget Sound. Bremerton Marina plans to add more locations in the future.

“We’re thrilled to be able to offer this value-add to our tenants,” Port of Bremerton CEO Jim Rothlin said in a statement. “With wide berths, huge fairways, sparkling new bathrooms and sweeping views of Sinclair Inlet we know we have a boater’s dream marina. But we also know that cruising is one of the great joys of boat ownership and we have some of the best cruising grounds in the world at our back door, so we’re pleased to be able to do our part in helping our tenants cast off and go explore.”
