In 2012, the club, community, and island lost a very dear and important person, Jim Berman. Jim Berman was the Dunewood Yacht Club’s Commodore for years, and during that time the club grew into the club we know today. From purchasing equipment for the club out of his own pocket, to organizing annual celebrations and competitions, Jim put his heart and soul into our organization, and for his hard work, we are eternally grateful.
The Jim Berman Award was introduced in 2012 to honor adults in our community who give back to the program as Jim did. It is our “Lifetime Achievement” award. We owe a big part of our current success to each recipient.
2013 – Murray Barbash
