    What is the Jesse L. Carr Trophy?

    Since 1958, PCYA has awarded the Carr Trophy to the winner of a regatta that featured skippers over 50 and crew members over 40 years of age. In 2012 the decision was made to partner with a carefully chosen sailing regatta and recognize the achievement of a sailing crew participating in a one-design portion of a larger regatta.
    Among the many trophies offered in yachting competition, only a few recognize the indispensable values and virtues of the championship crew, while at the same time recognizing the organizational ability and talent of the captain. It is the purpose of this Trophy to recognize the essential team relationship between captain and crew.
    Pictured above is “Shennanigans”, winner of the 2012 Jesse L. Carr Trophy awarded at the Express 27 Nationals sailed at Richmond Yacht Club. The winning crew consisted of: John Collins, Eric Baumhoff, Tony Fisher, Keith Stahnke and skipper Nick Gibbens

    What is PCYA?
    Established in 1923, the Pacific Coast Yachting Association is composed of yachting and cruising associations from Vancouver, B.C., Canada, to San Diego, California.
    Its purpose is to promote yachting in all its forms on the Pacific Coast of North America as well as in Hawaii.
