We are celebrating 80 years of boating and comradery. Read about our history here...
The RCYC annual awards are presented in January at the Commodores' Ball. Some of the more “interesting” ones are largely dependent on the input of the membership throughout the year. Others are voted on by the membership attending meetings in December or January, and there are others that are decided on by the Bridge.
Here are the categories:
Yachtsperson of the Years
(Awarded infrequently) To the person who has contributed SERVICE TO THE CLUB in major ways over an extended period.
Yachtsperson of the Year
To the person who has helped other mariners in a most significant way, or who has contributed to boating within the club in an exemplary way.
Outstanding Club Member of the Year
