NYYC Invitational Cup "Keeper" Trophy Presented

Former NYYC Commodore Robert L. James and former Trustee Charles A. Robertson presented the first of two Invitational Cup trophies. The artist is Norman McMillan. This trophy goes to the yacht club of the winner of the next (2011) NYYC Invitational Cup; the yacht clubkeeps it until the next event. The trophy, said McMillan, "is in the form of a tetrahedron shape" --as in a racing mark. "Itrepresents good wind and water. The materials are acrylic and stainless... The blue represents the water, and the stainless steel is the sailboat."
