Club Leadership & Staff

Club Leadership

Founded in 1901, Los Angeles Yacht Club connects individuals and families to generations of yachting history.  Our Leadership Team observes traditional naval terminology and customs, standard among world-class yacht clubs.  The Commodore, elected by Club Members, is the CEO of the corporation and presides over the similarly elected Board of Directors.  The other Flag Officers: Vice Commodore, Rear Commodore, and Fleet Captain typically serve one-year terms in their respective rank and assist Senior Officers as they move up in responsibility and provide leadership for specific Club Committees.
