OYC Past Commodores

OYC Burgee

Thank You Past Commodores

 

The following list represents the dedicated leaders whose contributions and efforts helped to build the legacy and rich tradition that is the Oakmont Yacht Club. We thank them for their dedication, perseverance, and unwavering leadership.

Please Note: Unfortunately, the 1936 flood swept away the OYC club records and with them, the meeting minutes that contained the commodore names from the years 1903 through l922. As a result, we are unable to honor the commodores for this period. However, our sincere respect and gratitude go out to them as well.
