John Bright Memorial Trophy

John Bright was taken from us on October 21st, 2008. In the memory and spirit of one of the most dedicated, persistent and fun loving racers on the circuit, we (the AWC Race Committee) awarded the John Bright Memorial Trophy to the single sailor that best embodies the spirit of windsurfing during our 2008 season.

At The 2008 Lake Travis Invitational, in front of racers from across the state, Mike Schultz was awarded the John Bright Memorial Trophy. Congratulations Mike!

Mike was an easy choice. In 2008, Mike took part in training approximately 120 new windsurfers at Windy Point. He also generously hauled out his own gear every Thursday from May to September for others to ride (and has done so for almost a decade!). Mike is truly an inspiration to windsurfers everywhere, and his generosity won't soon be forgotten.

Cheers Mike, and thanks again for all that you have done to promote windsurfing in Texas!
