Points status for the Marie Louise III Consistency Trophy (Posted 21.8.12)

Dear Skippers and Crews of our 2012 Classic Winter Series

Apologies for not including the status of the series points for the Marie Louise III Trophy in the previous email that carried our race 6 results and series points status.

As there’s always a silver lining in every cloud, this error on my part, is an opportunity to remind our Victorian membership about the provenance of the Marie Louise II Trophy, previously known as the Presidents Trophy. The presentation of this trophy will take place at end of series get together after the last race of our 2012 Winter Series on Sept 9

Below is a reprint of the article, that describes the origin and rules for this trophy, previously published in the November 2010 issue of the Associations flagship magazine.

All the Associations  magazines, except the current issue, are available on our web site. They’re well worth a reread. The articles are timeless and many renew our appreciation of yachts that are still active and racing with us.
