I can’t be more specific about the date; however, one of Chet’s signature achievements at the Club took place in June 1946 when he, as Chairman of the Power Yacht Committee, helped to instigate the Commodore Fleet Review.  That helped launch his bid to become Commodore of the Club in 1950, fifty years after his father had held the post.  Given the large number of sail boats shown, it’s probably another event, but I’m pretty sure it’s in that era.
