Perry Williams Sportsmanship Award - This is award, given in honor of a much missed club member, seeks to honor his memory by recognizing qualities of sportmanship, club service, and courteousness, both on and off the water.

Summer Series Award - This award goes to the winner of our annual SPSC Summer Series and recognizes local racing achievement.

Cock of the Walk Award - This award goes to the fastest sailor on the water at Shell Point Beach and generally excuses all levels of bragging and smug behavior for the duration of the year. The reigning COTW accepts challenges in the spring, but keep in mind, the Cock chooses the weapons.

 

Lug Nut Award - Given at anytime to the deserving individual who has demonstrated his/her propensity for either "bad" luck, "dumb" luck, or "no" luck at all.

Party Animal Award -  Given annually at the Endless Summer Sailboard Classic, this award goes to the merrymaker who seems to have just a little more fun than anyone else.

Festermobile Award - This prize is awarded annually at the Rum n' Root Beer Regatta to the owner of the most "beach worthy" transportation.

Richard Noggin Award - his award is held in reserve, to be used when unexpected excellence in particularly obnoxious behavior rears it's ugly head.

Gallant Sailor Award  - This award honors the sailor who doesn't have to wish he'd been a just a little more like Errol Flynn.
