Marilyn Butefish Nominations

WSA’s most prestigious honor, Marilyn Butefish Award, is presented annually by WSA in recognition of a club member who has made an exceptional contribution to the promotion of women’s sailing through service to WSA. The Board is currently accepting nominations to be included on the ballot that will be presented at our October General Meeting and voted on at the November General Meeting. This gorgeous trophy is currently on display at Santa Monica Windjammers Yacht Club.

Established in 1986, this perpetual award was created as a memorial to member Marilyn Butefish. Every year since then, WSA has proudly recognized award recipients for their exceptional contributions to WSA, specifically service that goes “beyond mere performance of duty.”

Any current WSA member (female or male) is eligible. A nomination can also include more than one member for an exceptional “team contribution”.

To submit a nomination, please include the person’s name and a few sentences about why your nominee deserves this award.

Complete the form below, or submit nominations to the Jr. Staff Commodore, or at the October general meeting.
