Marilyn Butefish Award

The prestigious Marilyn Butefish Award is presented annually by WSA in recognition of a WSA member who has made an exceptional contribution to the promotion of women’s sailing through service to WSA. This award recognizes service that goes “beyond mere performance of duty.”

The 2018 Marilyn Butefish trophy was awarded to Barbara Morris for her exceptional contributions in promoting WSA and for all her “behind the scenes” efforts that help make WSA a great organization.
