John W Nelson receives the 2014 Burgee of Merit Award from PCYA Commodore Gary Green.

John W Nelson receives the 2014 Burgee of Merit Award for his efforts as PCYA webmaster from Commodore Gary Green.

This unique silver cup was actually given to a third-place finisher in a PCYA regatta in 1923, our first year of existence.  Fortuitously discovered at a “swap meet” in 2012, it was an ideal choice for PCYA’s Burgee of Merit, which is awarded to an individual who has best supported the mission and promoted the image of the Pacific Coast Yachting Association.

Past Recipients:

2013 – Sandy Hardaker
2014 – John W Nelson

A candidate need not be a delegate of the PCYA Board of Directors and may not be a current Bridge Officer. He or she must be affiliated with a yacht club that belongs to an association that is a member of the PCYA. Each year the Commodore of PCYA shall consider a candidate who most exemplifies the purpose and qualifications of the deed of gift. The candidate will be brought to a vote by the PCYA Bridge officers. To view the Deed of Gift, visit this link.
