Constitution And By-Laws
At the Annual Meeting of
Dec. 1947, there was established a Junior Division of the Coronado Yacht Club which should
function as a separate unit within the Parent Organization, being guided by the Senior
Clubs Constitution and By-Laws. This Junior Club was formed to give impetus to our
Junior Fleet through allowing them to run their own affairs.
