Ron Primm received the A. Randolph Garnett Award for “betterment of the yachting community,” at the Yachting Committee’s annual dinner last night.
Named in honor of the former beloved NYCC President and great sailor, the trophy is not presented annually, but only on a deserved basis. Primm was a unanimous selection.
As a Past Commodore and long-time member of the Yachting Committee, Primm saw to the design and building of the Club’s current concrete dock, created the Dink Vail Regatta in honor of his legendary friend, designed the Ship & Shore newsletter and signage, and restored competitive racing to the Club. Primm was also known as an accomplished sailor and fierce competitor, guiding Echo to a number of victories.
