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 2,000 members in many 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. Please read our membership requirements,
and contact us for further information or to join. We invite you to join us -- the cost is minimal and the enjoyment great.
