BCYC -- Weld Award 1996 -- Nicholas Benton

The Ninth Annual

Sailboat

The race is beginning,
Five minutes to start,
His voice calls a warning.
Sailors take heart.

The sunfish attend
To his spirited cry.
And fight for the right
To be first in his eye.

But he inspires much more than
This watery trek.
This dashing young man
Has chronicled Indian Neck.

Pithy and erudite,
By far the wittiest.
No literary rival has
Our very own archivist.

Who better to bestow
the Weld Award upon
Than Commodore Emeritus ...

Nicholas Benton.
