Yachtsman of the Year 2018


The WYC board of directors voted Peter Larabee as the 2018 “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.

On board the Dram Bouy, Peter (and wife Betsey) is a strong and consistent sailboat racer who won the year long WYC Peanut Regatta, and participated in the GBCA races and LYC Harvest Moon Regatta.  This year Peter expanded his racing participation by helping organize WYC’s highly successful 2018 Charity Regatta benefiting Sailing Angels.

If you see Peter around the marina please congratulate him for his service as his efforts as a big part of WYC 2018 achievements.
