Twenty three Vineyard veterans were honored Saturday night by joining the Buzzards Society, the group formed to recognize those who have sailed 10 or more Vineyard races.

Over 100 people attended the March 10 dinner at Stamford Yacht Club, the host of the Vineyard Race which will be held for the 78th time this coming Labor Day weekend.

The Buzzards Society, formed four years ago, is now 165 members strong and meets once a year as well as honors those who excel in the Vineyard Race each summer.

“We created the Buzzards Society to build the tradition of the Vineyard Race,” said Diane McKeever, chairman of the 2012 race and founder of the society. “This is a fun and easy way for all Vineyard veterans to connect as well as build awareness of the race.”
