George Sweeton Memorial Award

Sunday Mornin' Coming Down - A post about my Dad each Sunday, named after a song that he loved.

----- From a recent eBlast to members of the Port Dover Yacht Club - Sailboat Racing Group. My mom, along with my aunt and uncle, have decided to fund an award each year in honour of Dad.

In November of last year we lost a cherished member of our family and a dedicated member of our sailing community. In his sailing career he was both skipper and crew, and in honour of George Sweeton we have commissioned an award to dedicate to the, more than 125, people who trim the main, grind the jib, hang on the rail, ride the tiller, gybe the pole… and in the deep dark sewer…re-fold the spinn. We would like to present the first award for outstanding crew member this year at Sailor’s Night, Oct 25, 2014.

If you feel you have a crew member that you would like to nominate, please fill out a nomination form. Deadline for receipt of the nominations is September 28, 2014 (last Wed night race is on Sept 24)

 If you would like to nominate one of your crew to be recognized publicly for:
Education, Community, Civility, Corinthian Spirit 
 This season, have you noticed that a member of your crew has been:
- Contributing to the positive environment of the boat
- Mentoring new crew members
- Improving performance
- Finding innovative and effective boathandling ideas
- Taking initiative to improve safety
- Enthusiastic about recruiting
