Arthur P. Nazro was a DCYC charter member, past DCYC Commodore, tireless race committee head and Commodore of the Texas Yachting Association until his death. An intrepid yachtsman, he devoted his life to the sport of yachting and sailboat racing This award is presented at the annual membership meeting in November to the member (or couple) who has provided long-term service to DCYC. The Board of Governors selects the recipient. The actual selection method has varied over the years and seems to be the choice of the current Commodore. Regardless, the voting is by secret ballot of the Board, with the recipient required to get a majority vote. Only the Commodore knows the outcome until the annual meeting presentation.
