The marked success of the Coronado Yacht Club can be directly attributed to the principles upon which the Club is organized. The main reason for its existence is to work for the benefit of Coronado and to that end to develop Glorietta Bay as a yacht harbor, attract yachtsmen to the harbor and encourage yachting in San Diego Bay.
