John Harris Memorial Award

Skipper of the Year Award

John Harris was an avid yachtsman who thoroughly enjoyed every minute on the water. John was a 25-year member of the Power Squadron, tireless race committee volunteer, and energetic racer who constantly contributed his time to DCYC. Many members know John as “The Father of Our Jib Crane”, not only for initial involvement, but for his persistence in its proper use and maintenance. This award is presented to the Best Overall skipper of each fleet, encompassing sportsmanship, participation, performance and spirit. The recipient is selected by the Fleet Captain.
