Charles A. Langlais first won this trophy in 1926 sailing the R Boat, Lady Gay in the 1926 Championship Regatta of the Pacific Coast Yachting Association. PCYA Staff Commodore Langlais 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”.
This prestigious trophy represents a unique opportunity to honor one of your deserving members for dedicated service to your organization and to the sport of yachting in general. The Trophy consists of a sterling silver loving cup mounted on a teak base bearing plaque for the names of the several recipients. It will be displayed at the Yacht Club of the recipient during the year following the award. An appropriate take-home trophy will be provided for the individual honored by this award.
