Victor-Eugène Gauthier, a printer and a casual poet, published medical works such as the Nice Médical review (1876-1901) and Cesare Mattei's Médecine électro-homéopathique ou nouvelle thérapeutique expérimentale (1883). Gauthier published also the Bulletin de la section des Alpes-Maritimes du Club Alpin Français; the local section of the prestigious wintersports club was presided from 1900-1932 by Knight Victor de Cessole (1859-1941), who promoted alpinism and ski in the Alpes-Maritimes and was admitted into the CNN in 1898.

Gauthier is listed as the owner of the picoteux Rafale (1 ton). A picoteux was a small sailboat used until the 1960s in Normandy for coastal fishing.
Gauthier's private signal is a white triangular flag with a blue horizontal stripe over a red vertical stripe.

Joseph-Guillaume Maurel served as Vice-President of the CNN in 1888-1909, and was, subsequently, appointed Honorary President.

Maurel is listed as the owner of the xebec Épreuve. A xebec (aka zebec; in French, chébec) was a Mediterranean three-masted ship used by corsairs and traders.
Maurel's private signal is white with a black Poseidon's trident placed along the descending diagonal and flanked by a blue star in the upper fly and a red star in the lower hoist.

Auguste Montolivo

[Montolivo's flag]

Auguste Montilovo is listed as the owner of the houari cutter Folichon (1 ton). Houari cutters, named after a type of sail, were used in the beginning of the 20th century for fishing in northern Brittany. Once a popular racing and leisure keelboat, the houari cutter was superseded in the 1910s by the Star.
Montolivo's private signal is white with a thin blue border, the red eagle of Nice in the middle and three black olives - most probably canting for the owner's name - in canton.

Franck Pilatte (1855-1917), a lawyer and nationalist politician, presided the local section of Paul Déroulède's Ligue des Patriotes (Patriots' League); he wrote several poems and chronicles deploring the moral decay of Nice.

President and, subsequently, Honorary President of the CNN, Pilatte is listed as the owner of the cutter Gabrielle (ex Silver Fish, 10 tons). His name was given to the boulevard where the club is located today.
Pilatte's private signal is a blue triangular flag with a white vertical stripe over a red horizontal stripe.
