Just One More Thing To Dust?
Sure, over the years a few sailing trophies may have managed to find their way to my home. Tucked into the bookcases, or half-hidden on shelves "artfully" filled with pictures and model boats, my collection includes the standard etched brass platters and sailboats mounted on wood, a few glass vases, and even a brass candlestick holder.
I think my favorite, though, is a tiny, 4-inch tall plastic trophy each of us crew received from the owner after winning the annual Women's Ocean Racing Series. Possibly because it's never needed Brasso, but mostly because it continues to remind me of a great regatta, a great boat, and a great season.
In mid-July now, the summer racing season is full-on, (in the northern hemisphere at least), and trophy presentations are occurring almost daily. All jokes about dust-gathering trophies aside, I don't envy the yacht club's Trophy Chair. It's not easy finding trophies that recipients might actually find unique and/or more interesting or useful than the standard cups, bowls, platters and mugs. Inspired by that challenge, I went on my own hunt for new trophy ideas.
Voila! The new Nautical Luxuries Regatta Trophy Collection

And a few more unique trophy options, though not engravable, still enviable trophies to receive!
