Cal 20 Classics Award Trophy

This trophy was designed and beautifully constructed by Tom Lowdon in 2005 to be presented to the first Cal 20 in newly introduced Classics division of Swiftsure, although never officially dedicated for that purpose.

In view of the small number Cal20’s participating and the uncertainty of finishing we had a rethink of its use to avoid it being hidden away in it’s box in a closet. It is now awarded as a way recognizing a skipper in Fleet 13 for a special act of sailing during the sailing year and presented at the annual RVYC Awards ceremony. The winner is decided at our annual meeting by secret ballot.

Some examples worth considering are:- Swiftsure, Women and Wind Regatta, Cow Bay Regatta, Waives Regatta in Vancouver, A beginner Cal 20 racer, An act of rescue at sea, Family participation.
