Roll of Honour

The RYA Community Awards were introduced in 2002 as "sailing's very own MBEs, recognising and applauding the vital contribution made by individuals working at the grass roots of the sport". In the first year, 38 awards were made across the UK in three areas, namely Services to Training, Services to Racing and Services to Club. Redesmere's own Roger Alexander was one of the first recipients in the Training category.

Since the initial launch, the categories for the awards have changed, but they are still only presented to "outstanding individuals for their exceptional commitment and services to boating at club or grass roots level." Currently the Award categories are:

Lifetime Commitment - someone who has shown exceptional commitment and dedication to their club or organisation for at least 15 years

Outstanding Contribution - someone who has volunteered for less than 15 years but who has none the less made a signi cant contribution. This could be a single or 'one-off' contribution.

Youth - someone under the age of 25 on the 1st October who has demonstrated a regular commitment and/or inspirational contribution which is over-and-above their own participation or achievement within the sport.
