A Short History of the Coconut Grove Sailing Club

by Renny Young

A Short History of the Coconut Grove Sailing Club
In December of 1945 a meeting was held at Dr. Paul Robertson's home on Saint Gaudens Drive in Coconut Grove. About 30 people (men, women and boys) gathered to form a youth membership club to promote sailing, racing and water safety.

The club was titled the "Coconut Grove Sailing Club."

The first Rear Commodore was a teenager who became a dentist and is still a lifetime member -- Dr. Don Smith. Women and teenagers were permitted to be full members, which was unusual at that time.
The first race was held December 23, 1945.

The members met at various homes and then were allowed to have their meetings at the Coconut Grove Elementary school on Grand Ave.
