ROYAL CITY YACHT CLUB - ANNUAL AWARDS



The 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:
