STORM TRYSAIL CLUB TROPHY
The Storm Trysail Club Trophy is awarded to a club and to individual yachts. To qualify, it is necessary for at least 2 yachts skippered by members of the same club to race. The club whose top two racers achieve the highest combined score wins this beautiful trophy to display in its clubhouse until the next race. High point skippers also receive a small trophy to commemorate their achievement. To enter, just be sure you indicate that you wish to compete and name the club of which you are a member.
The Storm Trysail Club Trophy entry form will be available at the Skipper Check-In on June 9, 2016. Forms may also be requested by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
