Annual awards ceremonies take place in each Chapter to celebrate the sailing achievements of BCA skippers and their crew and/or their safe return to home port. These happy occasions, which are celebrated by the membership at large, also inspire the “dreamers” among us and encourage the “do-ers” to maintain their membership while cruising.
If you think you are eligible, or wish to nominate someone for an award, now is the time to do it! You are encouraged to either apply for or nominate other members by contacting Past Commodore, Boudewijn Neijens . Detailed information about BCA’s many sailing and perpetual awards, application criteria, and the nomination process can be found on the BCA website  and in the 2016 Member Directory, pp 20-22.
In order to allow time for review by the Awards Committee, engraving, and presentation at the three Chapters’ Awards Nights in December, all applications must be received prior to November 6, 2016.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Boudewijn.
