The Cruising Club of America (CCA) has selected Brin R. Ford (New Haven, Conn.) to receive its 2012 Richard S. Nye Trophy for his contributions to the Club in the form of meritorious service. The trophy will be awarded by Commodore Daniel P. Dyer, III at the annual Awards Dinner on March 1, 2013 at New York Yacht Club in Manhattan.
Ford is a 1964 graduate of Harvard University and in 1970 received his Masters in Architecture from Yale University. Sailing, cruising and racing have been an integral part of his life since he was young. He has competed in the Newport Bermuda Race 18 times, mostly as navigator.
For the past 18 years, Ford has brought distinction to the CCA with commendable service on the Newport Bermuda Race Committee through his programming skills, the creation of online race registration, and race scoring.
