STAN HOWELL MEMORIAL TROPHY (CAL 20)

Captain Stan Howell spent his adult life in ships and boats with service in the Royal Navy, Merchant Marine and Royal Canadian Navy. He was a member of yacht clubs on both the east and west coasts of Canada. His duties ranged from Atlantic convoys in wartime to Queen’s Harbour Master in Esquimalt, in peacetime. His pleasures included the whole range of sailing activities. During half a century, since its presentation to Lt. Howell in 1937, his pewter tankard -the basis of this trophy - hung in many ships’ wardrooms and not a few yacht clubs, and was well used. Stan sailed on "Sea Fever", with skipper George Lewis, until ill-health forced him ashore when he was well over 80 years old.

This trophy is in his memory and is awarded annually to the first Fleet 13 skipper in the Cal 20 Canadian Championship Regatta.

Description: Memorial Trophy: pewter beer mug mounted on a wooden base. Inscription on the mug reads "Lieut. S.W. Howell, RNR, 1937, RMS Alaunia."
