Yacht clubs are organized like any other club or organization with committees, chairman, directors etc etc. Due to the connection with the sea and hence the navy, the various posts use naval terminology.
For example the Chairman/CEO is the Commodore. Usually, under the Commodore there are also the Vice Commodore (in charge of all employees) and the Rear Commodore (in charge of all in-house activities); they are also assisted by the Port Captain and the Fleet Captain respectively. Each of these ranks has specific responsibilities to ensure the smooth running of the club.
Additionally, yacht clubs often have dress codes and many mandate a coat and tie while inside. We do not.
