Call For Newsletter Articles & Trophy Nominations

Published 11:07 on 3 Oct 2020

Dear Club Member,

So far, it has been an interesting year, both on and off the water. Those of you who sought respite from the COVID-19 storm by taking to sea on the East Coast Cruise sailed into a quite different kind of storm, which must have occasioned some stirring stories.

If you wish to share your interesting year so far - sailing stories, advice, disasters and lessons learnt, as well as how you are dealing with the COVID-19 situation, please send them to me at for publication in the Autumn edition of the Club magazine.

The Golden Log Trophy will be awarded for the best account of a members' voyage published in the newsletter. This trophy is usually presented at the Fitting Out Supper.

There are also other non-race trophies that we usually try to award each year:

The Underwater Trophy:

Frequently awarded to someone who has fallen in.

The Black Ball Trophy:

For navigational misdemeanours, usually running aground.

The Walker Achievement Cup:

For an achievement on or off the water worthy of recognition.

The Seamanship Trophy:

For a noteworthy show of skill on the water.

The two Sam Poulton tankards:

Each to be awarded for services to the club (off the water).

The trophy from John Robson's family:

To be awarded to the boat/crew that have travelled furthest from their home port on a cruise.

Please send your nominations for these awards to me at

Keep safe and well. Looking forward to hearing from you,

Barry Fix

Rear Commodore
