The Corinthian Otters nominated Duncan Kay for this Community Award in the Summer of 2006 in recognition of his many years of service to the Otters. Last November both Duncan and Maureen, his wife, were invited to join the other award winners at the headquarters of the RYA at One Great George Street.
After lunch the awards were presented by Dee Caffari, the first woman in history to sail single-handed, non-stop round the world against the prevailing wind and currents. Dee paid tribute to the volunteers, such as Duncan, whose "enthusiasm and encouragement inspired her to take sailing further."
We offer our congratulations that Duncan's commitment over many years has been recognised.
