Iris Ames Cruising Award

Return to Cruising

Each year the Iris Ames Cruising trophy is awarded at the annual Installation Dinner to the SYC member(s) that earns the most cruising points during the year. All members that join in the cruise out fun earn cruising points. To promote and welcome our new members to the cruising world, new this year we've added a point category called "first cruise out" and will award points to any boat that brings a new club member to a cruise out that has never cruised with SYC before.

Points are awarded as follows:

  • 5 points for hosting a cruise out
  • 3 points for brining your boat to a cruise out
  • 2 points for riding to a cruise out on a boat, not yours
  • 1 point for first cruise out
  • 1 point for blacktopping
