The Regatta has 21 trophies to present: 18 for sailing, 3 for rowing and one for the best dressed yacht. Some are over 75 years old and the Victor Ludorum trophy (presented for the best overall rowing performance) has a silver hallmark of 1867.
Perhaps the most interesting feature of the trophies are the names inscribed on them – a long list of names from the past including several British Olympic medallists. We pay tribute to all of those who have contributed to the success of past Regattas, and here’s to many more years to come!
Many of the trophies were presented by local supporters of the regatta, including The Alwyn Foulkes and J A Foulkes (father and uncle of Glyn). Among the other grand trophies were those presented by Monty Bradshaw, F Deacon, Stanley Steele, Don Smy and the Montefiore family. The boatyard sheave, the Miles Arnott and Geoff Pack trophies were all made by the Elephant Boatyard.
