The Oldest Crews Trophy in the Class
« on: April 29, 2010, 11:05:55 PM »
The annual competition at Trent Valley Sailing Club's Open Meeting for National Twelves, for the Challenge Trophy, has the added attraction of a Trophy for the winner's crew. This is in the form of a silver plated pint tankard and was presented by the well-known yachtsman Beecher Moore after a visit to the club in 1946. It was named after his boat at the time, Laughter (N.493) and was thus named the Laughter Tankard. Trent Valley claims that this is the oldest trophy for crews in the Class.
So, crews, pressure your helms to come and race to win at the Open Meeting at Long Eaton, on Sunday May 9th.
