Ken's Favourite Race on Saturday

From the HYC Blog:

A favourite of Ken Hodgson, the Single Handed Race for the Lake of Two Mountains Gazette Trophy will be run on Saturday 31 July, warning signal 11:00.

A race traditionally set to challenge the skippers boat handling skills with a very unusual course, it is open to all classes. There will be a single start for all competitors and the race is limited to white sail.

Copies of the SI's will be available at the club and on http://hudsonyachtclub.com/racing_documents.html

The Lake of Two Mountains Trophy was originally presented to the club in 1964 to be awarded for Club Championship in the GP14 Class. During the 1970's the participation in GP14's fell and the trophy was rededicated to the Class Winner, Miscellaneous Centreboards. In 1982 the trophy took on its current award to the winner of the Single Handed Race. Since then it has been won by such notable members amongst others as Greg Bowser, Ken Hodgson, Cork Winters, Ed Cowell and Ron Harris.
