The team objective was for more
A familiar name popped up as the Canadian Yachting Association announced its 2011 annual award winners. Murray McCullough, SLSC racing coach in 2006, 2007 and 2009, is CYA’s 2011 coach of the year. This award recognizes Murray’s fine technical knowledge of our sport, but far more than that, it recognizes his leadership and his personal skills – his ability to motivate and to embue in his athletes a sense of good sportsmanship along with a keen competititive spirit.
