Dedicated volunteers from across the UK had their endeavours recognised by Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal at the annual RYA Volunteer Awards in London last week (Friday 21 November).
Some 47 winners were honoured for their exceptional generosity and dedication to boating at the awards ceremony and exclusive luncheon held at One Great George Street, Westminster, where they were presented with a commemorative medallion and certificate.
The RYA Volunteer Awards were divided into four categories: the RYA Awards, RYA Community Awards, Francis Elkin Award and the RYA Family Award.
The winners of the RYA Awards were Tony Saltonstall, Josie Gentry, Howard Nelson, Robert Russell (OBE) and David Williams, recognising their individual commitment and service to boating and to the RYA at a regional or national level.
Dalgety Bay Sailing Club would like to congratulate David in receiving this award, David is not just a hero for RYA but is dedicated volunteer at Dalgety Bay Sailing Club over many years currently holding the position of Treasurer. He is a great asset for DBSC having someone of his experience and passion for sailing.
