Trophies – Tuning Fork Trophy


Presented by Chris Bye to be awarded to the winner of a stand-alone three-race series at the start of the season. The tuning fork was a concept borrowed from the Royal Harwich Yacht Club.

The one or two day series of short sharp races enables crews and boats to ‘tune-up’ and practice their techniques ready for the season without jeopardising the early part of the main series
