EYC Trophies and Awards

The EYC awards several unique trophies and awards each year.

Series race trophies are typically awarded to the top three skippers in each of the EYC’s annual one-design race series.  In 2016 there will be eight separate series in four classes (Optimists, Club 420s, Lasers, and Flying Scots). Additionally, for 2016 we added Challenger fleet trophies for the Saturday Flying Scot series.

The Ephraim Regatta is held annually in Flying Scots. Trophies are awarded for the top five finishers. Additional trophies awarded at the Ephraim Regatta are:

•  The Charlie Sauter Memorial Trophy was donated by the Sauter family “in recognition of Charlie’s love of sailing and his undying commitment to finishing the race.”  The trophy is awarded to winner of the last race in the Flying Scot class in the annual Ephraim Regatta.  The winner’s name is engraved on a permanent plaque kept at the EYC, and the winner receives a keeper prize.

•  The Peder E. Knudson Husband-Wife Trophy is awarded to the Flying Scot placing highest in the annual Ephraim Regatta carrying a husband-wife team, one of whom is the skipper.  The winners names are engraved on a permanent plaque which is kept at the EYC, and a keeper prize is also awarded to the winning couple.
