Oakland Yacht Club - www.oaklandyachtclub.com:
"In January 1913, a handful of sailors met at Peterson's Boat House at the foot of 12th Street in Oakland. They formed Oakland Yacht Club which was incorporated in December of that year. ... Oakland Yacht Club is The ninth yacht club to be formed in The Bay Area. The others are Alvarado and San Francisco, formed in 1869, followed by Corinthian, Encinal, California, South Bay, Vallejo and Aeolian. Jack London ... the famous author-adventurer was a member from 1913 until his death in 1916. ... Demands by the Port of Oakland, owner of the Oakland property, caused relations to become strained. In January 1977, OYC members voted to abandon the Oakland property and move to Alameda and take over Pacific Marina."
