Yachtsman of the Year 2020


The WYC board of directors voted Michelle Weidner as the 2020 “Yachtsman of the Year”

The “Yachtsman of the Year” award is an annual honor presented to a Waterford Yacht Club non-board member based upon volunteering and participation in Waterford Yacht club events as well as service at Waterford Harbor Marina.

Michelle continued through the year with the WYC Facebook presence.  She administered and populated the WYC page with event announcements, and photos for the larger Facebook community to enjoy.  Michelle was also a frequent presence at the WYC events either helping with the set-up or clean-up.  You may see her in the marina or on the bay at the helm of the sailboat Fresh Aire..
