The PCCSC All-Conference Team is selected by a committee of coaches and graduate officials who are active within the conference. Sailors are evaluated based on their competitive record at all in-conference regattas and interconference regattas throughout the year. The committee selects a maximum of six sailors to the team.
The Mikey Murison Memorial Sportsmanship Award shall be awarded each year to the sailor that best exemplifies the Corinthian ideals of sailing. This sailor has made contributions to college sailing through his/her efforts, not only by competing, but in the promotion of the sport, by fostering sportsmanship among teams, maintaining quality of competition, and contributing to the overall performance of our conference. This includes factors like team leadership, PCCSC leadership, college sailing dedication, interest and support of growth in (college) sailing, etc.
The Robert M. Allan, Jr. Memorial Student Leadership Award was established in 2012 to recognize a PCCSC undergraduate whose leadership causes extraordinary achievement within a club, team, conference or the ICSA. The individual should have made a significant contribution that will result in long-term organizational improvement. Fellow sailors make nominations to determine the recipient and the individual is recognized at the annual meeting. This individual is also the Conference’s nominee for the ICSA Student Leadership Award.
The Richard H. Lough Memorial Award is presented by certain of his friends to the Pacific Coast Collegiate Sailing Conference for presentation from time to time to a person who has given extraordinary service of the year to the organization, operation, and encouragement of collegiate sailing within the PCCSC.
