DYC Racing Program Year End Awards

THE GEORGE FORSTER MEMORIAL TROPHY

The George Forster Memorial Trophy was presented for the first time, for the 1989 Sailing season. It was purchased by donations from DYC members and profits from the sale of teeshirts. It is named in memory of George ('Butch') Foster who died by his own hand in the Fall of 1988. 'Butch' is remembered by DYC members, not for his tragic life, but for the enjoyment he had when sailing.

The Trophy is perpetual and is to be awarded to the boat that, in the opinion of the Race Committee, has had the best performance in Season High Points. The Race Committee can thus ensure that the trophy is not won by the same boat every year but is spread between 'A', 'B', and the Daysailer fleets.

MOST IMPROVED (PHRF)

The Trophy is awarded to the boat that, in the opinion of the Race Committee, has shown the most improvement in the PHRF Racing Program.

MOST IMPROVED (Portsmouth)

The Trophy is awarded to the boat that, in the opinion of the Race Committee, has shown the most improvement in the Portsmouth Racing Program.

DON QUIXOTE

The Trophy is awarded to the boat that, in the opinion of the Race Committee, has shown the most enthusiasm and success in the face of major problems or adversity.
