The Buzzards Society officially takes flight

dsc_9687Congratulations to all those who were officially inducted into the Buzzards Society last night at Stamford Yacht Club.

Ninety members were recognized at the inaugural dinner for those who have raced 10 Vineyards or more.

The evening included plenty of recollections of races past before and during the dinner.

Diane McKeever, the originator of the idea, was master of ceremonies and used the occasion to talk about the 75th running of the Vineyard Race scheduled to start September 4. This year’s race will be presented by Thomson Reuters.
