BCYC -- Weld Award 1992 -- Dan Cheever

The Fifth Annual

Sailboat

We've known him, loved him since heaven knows when.
His trademark's his hat strapped under his chin.

Our first sailing programs would not flounder,
Since he would become a yacht club founder.

But that was 38 years ago
when tech dinghies were the only show.

He got the kids out each Saturday to crew,
'Specially young girls - the lads were so few.

By his example they learned how fair play
holds true in a boat when it must "give way."

For racing dinghies he required no fee
When he established his cup, a grand trophy
presented annually to eighteen winners
of various Indian Neck kith-and-kinners.

The fifth Weld Award goes to this achiever,
who else could it be than our own...
