Silver Stars – Who are they and what do they do?

When the Commodore of a yacht club completes their term, he/she becomes and forever remains a Staff Commodore.  When in uniform, one recognizes a Staff Commodore by their THREE SILVER STARS.  At DWYC these individuals are called “Silver Stars”.

Collectively, the Silver Stars continue to support and give to our DWYC Community.  A primary function of the Silver Stars is to raise funds for the Patrick Walsh Scholarship Fund.

Each year the Silver Stars hosts a variety of fundraising events.  Funds raised are awarded to the children and grand children of DWYC members.  To be selected as a recipient of a portion of the funds raised, a DWYC members must submit a completed application. Contact Vito Ferlauto, Craig Rahn, or any seasoned Silver Star for more information.
