Congratulations to Loretta Rehe on receiving the Clogg Trophy

At the DRYA Awards banquet, our PC Loretta Rehe was awarded the esteemed Clogg Trophy. This is a Lifetime Achievement trophy awarded only when a worthy recipient is identified. Lifetime achievement awards are given to individuals who have made contributions of outstanding significance in their field. Spend only a few minutes thinking about Loretta and her positive accomplishments at Crescent and the DRYA and you will conclude she is well deserving of this award. Loretta has made a lasting impact on the sport of sailing, with leadership in the ALtS, Junior programs and DRYA. Congratulations Loretta on a well deserved trophy and a huge thank you for your contributions.
