Cabrillo Beach Yacht Club. Est: 1932. Location: San Pedro, CA.
Burgee: Broad pennant circa 2:3 :2 to crutch. Red field superimposed by a black lighthouse silhouette with a white triangle of light towards the hoist (1.0 unit wide at base) and with a white quadrilateral of light towards the upper fly point. "Founded in 1932 Cabrillo Beach Yacht Club was established amid the enthusiasm for small boat racing sparked by the 1932 Olympic Games in Los Angeles. ... The first recorded meeting was held in October, 1932 when the club's original name, the "Sailing Club," was changed to "Hollywood Yacht Club." Three months later the name was changed to "Cabrillo Beach Yacht Club."
