Historic MYC Trophy Dedication at Awards Banquet Sept 29th
Minnetonka Yacht Club is proud to announce the donation and dedication of a very special trophy at our upcoming Awards Banquet on September 29th. The trophy, whose donors wish to remain anonymous until the Banquet, is one of the Club's first trophies. In the 1880's and 1890's, it was awarded each week to winners of the Club's races, when boats were custom-built by members with few design limits, and pure boat speed often determined the outcome.
It was for weekly possession of this trophy that racing yacht design evolved in just a few decades from the slow sandbaggers of the Club's first years, to the fast planing boats, including the famous Onawa, that were the forerunners of today's scows and other racing yachts.
The trophy is returning to the Club after nearly a century. It is a silver punchbowl, 30 inches tall, beautifully engraved with sailboats of the era, and topped by a female figure representing Victory. Two silk racing pennants from the 1880's and 1890's will also be given to the Club.
See the trophy's dedication and first award at the MYC Awards Banquet on Lighthouse Island, Saturday, September 29th. You'll also be able to see the Club's incredible collection of over 100 historic trophies.
Bug Island Lift-Out is Saturday, September 29th at 9:00 a.m. Bug Island Lift-Out is for all Bug Island lifts, with exception of the keel boat lifts. Remember to bring attire for being in the water, (i.e. swimsuit, wetsuits or waders) because the more help we get, the faster the lifts come out.
