Latest News: Forums Racing Developing the class Re: Re: Developing the class


Rather than calling it a trophy for the first non Hartley boat, how about calling it the ‘vintage’ or ‘classic trophy’ for the first boat with a sail number under W10500? This would be in addition to the silver and bronze trophies, but gold fleet sailors could be banned from competing for it in order to rule out the small number of top helms who have not switched to the new boats.

And, to introduce an element of controversy to keep this discussion thread going, how about reallocating the Duncannon Trophy for this purpose? This is the trophy for the first boat with a combined helm and crew age of 100+ which nobody really wants to win!
