Sheila McCurdy Named Rhode Island Boater of the Year!
Middletown resident Sheila McCurdy, a near-legendary figure in recreational sailing in the U.S., was named "Rhode Island Boater of the Year" by the Rhode Island Marine Trades Association at opening day ceremonies of the Providence Boat Show! She was given the group's John H. Chafee Award, named after the former Rhode Island Governor and Senator in recognition for all he did on behalf of the marine industry when he was in office.
In presenting the award, Tom Rich, President of New England Boatworks in Portsmouth and President of RIMTA, praised Ms. McCurdy, saying: "Sheila has excelled in sailing individually and has given an equal amount back to recreational boating through her work and volunteer pursuits.
Besides a long list of personal achievements in sailing, Ms. McCurdy serves as Commodore of the Cruising Club of America - well-known for running the Newport Bermuda Race with the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club - being the first women to hold the post in the history of the club. She is also a trustee of the New York Yacht Club and, for many years, she has been a member of the US Sailing's Training and Safety-at-Sea Committees as well as Chair of the organization's National Faculty which creates the instructional standards and training materials for boating instructors and students nationwide. She has been an advisor to the US Naval Academy sailing program as a member of the Fales Committee for 15 years and she is an advisor to the Maritime Studies Program at New York Maritime College (SUNY).
