Charles A. Langlais Trophy

Charles A. Langlais Trophy

PCYA Staff Commodore Charles A. Langlais first won this trophy in 1926 sailing the R class boat, “Lady Gay,” in that year’s Championship Regatta of the Pacific Coast Yachting Association. Mr. Langlais later rededicated it in 1976 to be awarded once in any calendar year to an individual for “exceptional, outstanding, and meritorious service to the sport of yachting.”

The 2013 recipient was Jerry Martin, Staff Commodore of King Harbor Yacht Club and Southern California Yachting Association, nominated by PCYA member, the Association of Santa Monica Bay Yacht Clubs.
