Yachtsman of the Year 2022


The WYC board of directors voted Robert Donley as the 2022 “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 fleet, social events, educational or communications.  In 2022 consistent club structure required perspective available only from a past commodore and was delivered by Robert Donley.  Robert’s counsel regarding the club charter and operations, plus his assistance in recent club events has been important to WYC.  WYC thanks Robert for taking time away from his Port of Houston duties to remain active in the club.
