Where would we be without our Presidents and Commodores.
From our first President in 1865, to our current Commodore Shawn Offer, each have left their mark on the Club.
Dedicated beyond measure does not begin to describe their efforts.
Their leadership has seen Royal Perth Yacht Club become the progressive and inclusive Club it is today.
The role of Commodore
Royal Perth Yacht Club is governed by a General Committee which is elected by Members on an annual basis at the Annual General Meeting. The General Committee comprises of Flag Officers, Captains, and Members.
The Commodore is the principal Flag Officer* and with the Committee sets a direction for the Club. As part of his role, the Commodore chairs the General Committee meetings.
* A Flag Officer includes the role of Commodore, Vice Commodore and Rear Commodore. Each Flag Officer has the right to fly a Club burgee which shows their rank.
