RYA Scotland Annual Awards 2012
It is that time of year again when we look to recognise people who have gone that extra mile for their sport, achieved great successes and have helped to encourage others.
Many people kindly took the time to nominate people for the six awards for their hard work and commitment to the sport. All the nominations were collated and were presented to an impressive judging panel.
Jeremy Glen, Chairman of RYA Scotland, was joined by Chris Tiso, Mike Hay and Shirley Robertson to narrow down all the nominations to a shortlist of 3 people for each category and also the winner.
All those shortlisted for an award have been invited to join us at the Annual Awards Dinner in Largs on Saturday 23rd february 2013 where the winners will be announced on the night.
