The Royal Malta Yacht Club depends heavily through the voluntary contribution of its membership to govern and operate its programmes. The Club Committee, made up of nine members, is elected by the Club’s members at the Annual General Meeting, conducts areas of management which falls within their remit.
The Commodore is elected annually by the Committee from amongst its members at a meeting chaired by the person having obtained the majority of votes during the election of the Committee, or otherwise by the most senior officer of the previous Committee present.
The elected Commodore nominates Officers to be approved by election amongst the members of the Committee.
All Officers with the exception of the Commodore may or may not be appointed at the discretion of the Committee.
Mr John Ripard Sr is the Honorary President of the Royal Malta Yacht Club.
