Ken Stead was on the committees of both MYC and RCYC. His aim was to encourage offshore racing from the club. (FSC used to run a popular race round Wolf Rock, but it was about the only offshore race from Falmouth and some “wimps” got it stopped after a bad race!). Ken wanted to encourage yachts to venture further afield than Fowey and go west of the Lizard.
He had sailed all his life and worked as a Physicist in a Sheffield Steelworks. He moved to Cornwall in 1955 to take up Politics and Sailing.
This was MYC’s first cup for the Scillies race. It later became the overall Offshore Series Cup, and is now awarded for cruising and presented at the Dinner/Dance. The winner must have been west of Lizard Point. The engraving and list opposite records the previous season.
It is sad to record that Ken Stead, father of Sue Treneer, died in 2010.
