2017 Garrett Horder Memorial Trophy Winner – Half Moon Bay Yacht Club

Rear Commodore Joe Rockmore & Commodore Scott Pyne (Half Moon Bay Yacht Club) accept the award at PCYA Annual Meeting at St Francis Yacht Club on January 20, 2018

The Pacific Coast Yachting Association has chosen the Half Moon Bay Yacht Club as the 2017 recipient of the Pacific Coast Yachting Association’s Garret Horder Memorial Trophy.

There were many excellent submissions this year, but our Horder Committee felt that Half Moon Bay YC’s program stood out. The committee found that HMBYC had created their program from scratch about 10 years ago.  Over that time period they have trained hundreds of children in the art of sailing and safely enjoying water sports.

Congratulations to Pacific Inter-Club Yacht Association (PICYA) and the Half Moon Bay Yacht Club.
