Key West / Premiere Racing creates new perpetual award in Paul Washburn's honor.

The Paul Washburn Award.
For the Love of the Sport.

I traveled to Key West again having just returned last week for a very special sailing event as the spotter on the signal boat on the big boat division circle. I have been doing this for many years and am never disappointed. The event producer, chairman and friend Peter Craig created a special new perpetual award in Paul’s honor “For the Love of the Sport”. My good friend Bruce Golison working with Peter getting this memory of Paul created gets big credit as well. Bruce Ayers won the award this year and Paul’s trophy is now displayed prominently at the Newport Harbor Yacht Club for the rest of this year.
