Fleet 5 Trophies

In addition to the series-specific awards presented by the MRA and/or the host yacht club for top-place finishes, Fleet #5 has its own group of awards and perpetual trophies, most of which it presents at the annual awards banquet held each fall. Each of these has a story, and is representative of the long history of Fleet #5.

Trophies

Richie Santos Trophy

Outstanding Crew, awarded at annual banquet.

Perpetual, silver cup on a wooden base, engraved with winners & years won. Donated by John Burke.

Named in memory of John Burke’s crew, Richie Santos. This trophy is awarded each season to that individual who most distinguishes him or herself in a crew capacity. Candidates must be nominated by a skipper registered in the fleet, and nominations typically are submitted in a letter to the fleet president. Final selection is at the discretion of the president, and can be judged on the basis of long-term contribution, overall performance during a single season or regatta, or even on a single compelling or outstanding event.

Most Improved Award

Most improved skipper, awarded at annual banquet.

Perpetual Pitcher – Purchased by fleet in early 1970s – Dick Welch president.

Awarded each year to the skipper who demonstrates the most improvement from the previous season. Selection is based primarily on a comparison of the overall score for all local events, including the EYC Spring Series, MRA series, Twilight series, Race Week, Independence Day regatta, Labor Day regatta, and the CYC Fall series. Typically, boats demonstrating comparable improvement higher in the ranking win over those who improve lower in the ranking.

Rookie of The Year

Best new skipper, awarded at annual banquet.
