Congratulations to member Eric Korbas for winning "Best Overall" at PICYA's 2021 Opening Day on the Bay! It was a tremendous effort by Eric and other volunteers to decorate, sail and party Eric's boat Amanda to victory, and in wet and challenging conditions, at that.
For yet another consecutive year, PICYA's Ward Cleveland Memorial Trophy is in our possession, thanks to our volunteers. Well done Eric and team!
