HomePast Commodores

The first Commodore of the Gulf Coast Sailing Club, when established in 1974, was Bob Utter, and club meetings were held at Cambier Park. Since that time, our Club has brought the fun of sailing to Southwest Florida under the leadership of our Commodores and Board of Directors. We recognize the tremendous contribution of our volunteer Commodores.
