We are trying to locate the Antrim Coast Trophy which has been missing for quite a long time. This trophy was originally devised as a ‘tag on’ event and raced for within the regattas of Cushendall Sailing & Boating Club & East Antrim Boat Club. It was inaugurated at EABC and last sailed for at CSBC.
It terms of material the hexagon was in silver plate. Its ‘pole’ was also in silver plate; this rod soldered at one end, the other was drilled and glued into the base.
The base was a basalt stone (off the beach), cut and glued on to a mahogany plinth.
See below sketch with thanks to Tom Jobling of EABC.
If you have seen this trophy or have any recollection of it then please get in touch with us.
