2009 Harman Hawkins Trophy
Tom and Barbara Farquhar

Together and separately, Barbara and Tom Farquhar have been involved in all aspects of race management. The Farquhars have been extraordinarily influential in the areas of race management, from running races, to judging and umpiring, to teaching race management, and judging and umpiring seminars extensively around the World. They have also volunteered countless hours for countless years to regattas, US SAILING, and ISAF Committees.

Barbara, a former US SAILING Vice President, is a certified Senior Judge, Race Officer, and Umpire. A few of her contributions include a stint as Chairperson of the Race Administration and Judges Committee. Barbara has played a significant role with ISAF’s Match Racing Committee and Women’s Forum.

Tom, who served as a member of the US SAILING Appeals Committee, also served as Chairman for the Race Administration Committee. He was Chairman of the Race Officer Training & Certification Subcommittee. Tom was the Field of Play Manager for the 1996 Olympics and the US SAILING Olympic Trials Manager in 2000. These are just a few of many examples of how Tom and Barbara Farquhar have improved the quality of race management.
