What is a Yacht Club?
A yacht club is a sports club specifically related to sailing
and yachting. Yacht clubs are often associated with a particular
marina or port. The club is ostensibly for the owners of yachts
but more generally serving as a social club. There is a huge
amount of tradition behind yacht clubs, sailing being a rather
venerable sport. Most yacht clubs have a distinctive burgee
(pennant or flag) and short abbreviation.
The Yacht Club Organization
Yacht clubs are often organized in faux naval style. The
Commodore is usually the senior officer. For most yacht clubs,
under the Commodore there are also the Vice Commodore and the
Rear Commodore. In a few yacht clubs the Admiral, which is one
rank above the Commodore, is the senior officer.
