It is with deep sadness that we announce past commodore Dr. Burton Jay passed away on December 13, 2015.  Dr. Jay had an exemplary career serving in leadership roles in yachting organizations.  He served as commodore of Southwestern Yacht Club in San Diego California in 1980, as commodore of the Pacific Coast Yachting Association in 1990, international president of International Order of the Blue Gavel in 1987 and commodore of the San Diego Association of Yacht Clubs in 1987.

His vision and leadership skills had a positive influence in each organization he served.  Burton Jay also was a mentor to many of the current leaders of the organizations where he served.
His wisdom was always apparent.  He once said after one of the meetings, “That all this yachting gets in the way of boating.”

Our condolences to his wife, Susan, and his family.
