The YRALIS held its 2014 Annual Meeting last Sunday in the beautiful Schaefer Room at Larchmont YC. The lovely holiday decorations and the glittering trophies added a special ambiance to the room. Add in the jovial award-winners and their friends and family, plus some time for pre-meeting refreshments and the scene at LYC was in full celebration mode. Dawn Riley, Executive Director, Oakcliff Sailing Center, wowed the crowd with her take on recent activity on Leg 2 of the Volvo Ocean Race. Even though most of the audience was familiar with the mishap to Team Vestas Wind forcing them to cease racing, you could hear a pin drop as Dawn spoke of what actually happened. Thank you, Dawn, for your, as always, entertaining and informative presentation.
