2012- Corinthian Sailing Club - Dallas
US Sailing’s 2012 St. Petersburg Yacht Club Trophy - Corinthian Sailing Club (Dallas, TX)
The Corinthian Sailing Club played host to US Sailing’s Championship of Champions for the Jack Brown Trophy, in October of 2011. Twenty teams from around the country convened in Dallas for racing in Flying Scots on White Rock Lake.
Competitors of the race expressed their overwhelming satisfaction with the club’s outstanding display of organization in race management and operations. Positive reviews were conveyed regarding the on-water and off-water personnel that ran everything from housing, to transportation, to food and beverage, to repairs on the water, and especially the 20 round robin races over three days.
Notable contributors were Principal Race Officer Mark Foster, Regatta Chairman Bob Gough, and CSC Commodore Jim O’Connor. CSC members volunteered their homes, their time and their talents to run the regatta.
All competitors also received a DVD of the 2011 Championship of Champions as a token of appreciation for their participation.
The Corinthian Sailing Club previously received this award in 1986 for the US Team Racing Championship.
The St. Petersburg Yacht Club Trophy is awarded annually. It was named after the St. Petersburg Yacht Club for recognition in running the best regattas. Since 1977, US Sailing has selected the winner on the basis of race management support and evaluation by participating skippers.
