Our Organization

Yacht clubs are organized like any other club or organization with committees, chairman, directors, etc. Due to the connection with the sea, and therefore the Navy, the various posts use naval terminology.

For example, the Chairman/CEO is the Commodore. Usually, under the Commodore there is also the Vice Commodore (in charge of all employees) and the Rear Commodore (in charge of all in-house activities); they are also assisted by the Port Captain and the Fleet Captain, respectively. Each of these ranks has specific responsibilities to ensure the smooth running of the club. 

Additionally, yacht clubs often have dress codes and many mandate a coat and tie while inside. We do not.
