Carlings Honored Awards

Annual Awards


Boating Family of the Year

Past Commodore PC Kelly Lynn & Fleet Captain Kelly Bob Frasure 2016





Carling Yacht Club's "Boating family of the Year" is determined at the end of each year.

All members (with the exception of line officers) receive points throughout the year for chairing or participating in the various club activities.  These points are then totaled at the end of

the December board meeting by the Line Officer's partners.  The family with the most points

is then presented with this award at the Awards Banquet.

by both using your vessel to further the interests of the Club and the family aboard actively

participating in cruising.
