Trophy Upgrade Our venerable 1971 vintage trophy had a nice upgrade thanks to Michael Butler.  A new identical but larger bottom layer of the "cake" was added sometime over the last year by Michael. This trophy may take up a spot somewhere in Glenmore Sailboats shop hopefully close to the Canadian Nationals trophy which is a 1969 vintage trophy.
