A tribute to the Great men of Royal Perth Yacht Club - our Presidents and Commodores

A Club is only as strong as the men and women who are prepared to stand up and make a difference for their fellow members. The men you see below have dedicated hours and hours of personal time, effort and energy into making Royal Perth Yacht Club the fine establishment it is today.

The road to Commodore is indeed a long and demanding one. In fact some of the Commodores and Presidents below have spent 10 years on the Committee of the Club before reaching the rank of Commodore. During this time they tackle both the sailing and social portfolios of the Club.

Presidents and Commodores - we salute you.
