Jim Ketler Award for 2013

The 2014 Jim Ketler Service Award has been given by the Vallarta Yacht Club to Dee Cokerham of Nuevo Vallarta.  This award is given annually to the person that has displayed active and positive support for the mission and goals endorsed by the Vallarta Yacht Club to benefit the greater Banderas Bay Community.  Dee has without question fulfilled these goals.  She selflessly gives her time and talent in support of the Vallarta Yacht Club's goal to give back to the community through her work in support of the local charities we endorse. 

Just a few of her many accomplishments this past year were chairing the monumental task of launching the first Taste of Nuevo Vallarta which she combined with the Yacht Club's long running Chili Cook-off.  This very successful event attracted hundreds of people and raised well over $57,000 pesos for the Families at the Dump and the Navy League's Toys for Tots Program and at the same time allowed the over 40 restaurants that participated, to show off their "wares".  Dee also arranged for a benefit dinner concert at the Yacht Club that raised over $4000 pesos for Families at the Dump, and coordinated a clothing drive for FAD. To cap off her busy year she volunteered to take over the Yacht Club's Charities outreach Program.  In addition to her charity work Dee has made time in her busy schedule to Chair the Banderas Bay Regatta's logo wear sales for the past several years, has previously chaired the Club's Membership Committee, and this past year served as the Club's Treasurer.

Would you know what to do if a friend suddenly dropped to the ground? What if they were choking? Just a few hours of training could give you the skills to save a life.

Dr. Jim "Toothpick" Nordstrum has been giving CPR training to VYC members and non-members for a number of years. An expert first responder, Dr. Nordstrum offers these classes free to VYC members, and for a small fee ($15) for non members. Licenced captains may also re-certify for an additioanal fee.

The class involves video trainng and hands-on training in CPR techniques, the use of oxygen and in the use of the club's AED (Automatic External Defibulator).

VYC's Las Animas Out Station Going Strong

Did you know that VYC has an out station? Several years ago, a few dedicated members approached the owners of the El Coral Restaurant in Las Animas with the idea of establishing an ongoing outport for VYC members on that wonderful secluded beach. The result was a long and happy partnership with one of the best beach restaurants in Banderas Bay!

Members of VYC are offered a 10% discount at El Coral. Additionally, thanks to the generous donations of members over the years, El Coral has a domino set, Bocce Balls, a kayak and a stand-up paddleboard available to VYC members.
