Awards

 

Noel Croucher Award In recognition of meritorious services rendered to yachting and rowing.  In memory of Noel Croucher (1891-1980) who was a stalwart of the Club and served as Commodore from 1941 to 1949.
Tom Larmour Awards

Tom Larmour was a popular and gifted RHKYC sailor who drowned in tragic circumstances when he went to the assistance of two young strangers who had been swept into the sea at Stanley waterfront in typhoon conditions. Tom got into difficulties after their rescue and lost his own life in the wild seas. To honour his bravery and memory, a fund was set up in the Club to be devoted to the needs of our youth sailing programme of which Tom was an active supporter. 

Three perpetual trophies have been allocated to recognise the achievements and efforts made by Youth Sailors at the Club in Tom’s name. These are now awarded each year and are displayed in the Club as a way of encouraging other Youth Sailors to do well in the sport. The Youth Sailing Class Committee and other interested Members have nominated suitable candidates to the Sailing Committee for their decision on the most deserving recipients.

Sam Kelly Memorial Award The Sam Kelly Memorial Award was established in her memory by her father to promote the active participation in our Club by its young members especially those aged between 18 and 35 years.
Wilson Youth Rowing Awards The Wilson Cup award and the Wilson Bowl award, both donated to the Club by Bob Wilson, our Vice Patron,  Past Commodore and Past Rowing Captain,  recognize the achievements and efforts made by youth rowers at the RHKYC and as a way of encouraging other Youth rowers to do well in the sport.
