Club Awards and Recognition
CYC sponsors multiple awards
and recognition for members that have excelled either in racing or in demonstrating
qualities that are important to the club. The awards are:
James Moriarty Corinthian Award: - see list
of Corinthian Award Winners
"Sailboat racing is the one competitive
sport which is totally dependent upon the honesty of the individual participants...the
skipper and crews on the race course. The embodiment of the honesty has come to
be known as the Corinthian Spirit. It is at the heart of our sport, it is its
strength and its future."
The Corinthian award is made each year by
the Sail Fleet Captain, and presented to the racing fleet skipper who has most
exemplified the Corinthian Spirit.
The Commodore's Award was developed and donated to the Carlyle Yacht Club in
2003 by Kate and Jim Stephenson. The award is given annually at the Holiday Party
by the out-going Commodore. The purpose of the Award is to recognize the individual
that, in the eyes of the Commodore, stood out as having done the most, over and
above what might be expected, to benefit the Carlyle Yacht Club during that year.
