Scotland’s sailing clubs, volunteers and instructors who have made an outstanding commitment to the sport in 2012 will be recognised at the RYA Scotland’s Annual Awards, which were declared open for nominations this month.
The search has begun for Scotland’s top coach, instructor, club, volunteer, young volunteer and outstanding female contribution to the sport, with the winners being honoured at a prestigious dinner in February.
Judging this year’s awards is a distinguished panel: twice Olympic gold-medal winning sailor Shirley Robertson OBE who nominated Borders 17 year Callum Airlie as one of the seven young athletes to light the London 2012 Games cauldron; Mike Hay MBE, British Olympic Association’s Head of Winter Sport Engagement and sportscotland board member; and Chris Tiso, CEO at Tiso Group Ltd, and sponsor of British Team member Charlotte Dobson in her 2012 Olympic campaign.
