Jason Cox Youth Award

 

Cox aw1

 

Jason Cox was the young son of Jim and Carolyn Cox. If you were involved in CRAM in the 80's and 90's, you knew them. Jim and Carolyn were heavily involved in the club, working on Hospitality, Race Committee and Fleet Captain duties.

Young Jason was involved as well, crewing on anyone's boat he could snag a ride on. Jason was always the one seen smiling from ear to ear on the race course. He was an excellent sailor, and loved the sport.

Jason also had severe diabetes. He succumbed to the disease at a very young age. It was a huge loss to the CRAM family.

Jason is remembered with this youth award. It celebrates the young people in our club who exude the same kind of enthusiasm for the sport.
