Just write a short paragraph or two about who you think deserve these awards, and why.

The NCWSA board will review the nominations and make the final decisions.

Awards will be presented at the October NCWSA General Membership Meeting.

TEAM Excellence Award

Awarded since 2001, the Team Excellence award highlights Exemplified Teamwork through excellence in the Corinthian Spirit* of competition. (Note: you may nominate your own team for the TEAM Excellence Award. PREP and RACING eligible.)

TEAM is:

T - Teaching    E - Educating    A - Achieving/Accomplishing    M - Mastering a skill

NCWSA Most Improved Sailor

This award is to recognize an NCWSA Member that has shown a remarkable improvement in either crew position progress, resourcefulness, skills, or personal achievement throughout this season.

NCWSA Coach of the Year

This award is to be presented to an individual who may or may not have been on the NCWSA boat during competition. This may be presented to a “Coach” of an NCWSA boat competing in a fleet, or to someone who was acting in an “unofficial” position of coach. This individual will have earned this distinction through the additional time spent in preparation of racing the sailboat, encouraging sailing skills, and helping the NCWSA crew become a cohesive team. (This special honor or recognition may be awarded to a non-NCWSA member or participant).

NCWSA Rookie of the Year

This award is to recognize a NEW NCWSA Member that has sparkled and glistened brighter than any other new NCWSA member. This nominee does not have to be new sailor / racer - just has to be new to NCWSA. This individual will earn this award by excelling with enthusiasm and involvement through all, but not limited to, contributions to: her team, NCWSA, Edgewater Yacht Club, and/or other sailing events throughout this season.

Remember, anyone can nominate another for these awards, but we won’t know who is excelling and shining unless YOU nominate someone!
