The Commodore's Award


The Commodore's Award is given to a person whom the Commodore feels is worthy of recognition for his or her service to Privateer Yacht Club, and often for being a major help to the Commodore.  The silver cup originally belonged to former PYC member Hubert  "Butch" J. Horan (1933-1995) and was returned to the club after his passing by his widow.  Hubert and his wife, Ellen, were enthusiastic Snipe sailors here at Privateer in the '50's & '60's.  Myra Brown was the Commodore when the cup returned to PYC and she used it to create the Commodore's Award.
