On display are prizes given to the club to honor accomplishments; most honoring speed, some honoring endurance, some honoring accuracy and others honoring service.
Donors have been competitors, families, friends and past Commodores. Behind each trophy is a story, which we have tried to report with accuracy to the extent of all known facts. The names engraved on each trophy offer only the briefest, albeit permanent, recognition of the accomplishment of the winning captain, ship and crew. Some trophies have lengthy stories involving competition, triumph, and since this is yachting, distinction. Some were new acquisitions for the record entry in 100th Race to Mackinac in 2008, all of which were named for various elements of geography that are part of the race course.
We look to the future when we see our trophy room, eager for new additions and amended triumphs.
