Yachtsman of the Year 2021


The WYC board of directors voted Bill Adams as the 2021 “Yachtsman of the Year”

Each year WYC gives special recognition to a regular member who has been especially supportive.  In previous years such help was needed for regattas or communications.  Our busy social calendar, especially in 2021, required extra effort, which was delivered by Bill Adams.  Bill was typically first to arrive for event setup and last to leave after cleanup.  The important newsletter portion of the WYC website was originally authored by Bill.  His extensive cruising in the Great Lakes, Gulf and East Coast make Bill a valuable source of club information.
