Who Are We?

The International Order of the Blue Gavel was founded by Ev Henry, Commodore of the Rainier Yacht Club, Seattle Washington, in 1953. It is comprised of Past Commodores, with over 4,000 members in 11 countries. The IOBG Auxiliary was formed in the late 1980's by the Past Commodores' spouses, and has over 400 members in 3 countries.

We strive to preserve the traditions, customs and ethics of yachting so that they will not be lost to those yet to come. We meet locally, regionally, nationally and internationally in the true spirit of camaraderie, enhanced by our common bond of being spouses of Past Commodores. Contact us for further information or to join.  We invite you to join us -- the cost is minimal and the enjoyment great.

Our Mission

"While providing guidance, support and camaraderie, the mission of the International Order of the Blue Gavel Auxiliary is to promote local districts worldwide and raise funds for the Humanitarian Foundation and other charities."
