Tricentennial Trophy

This Tricentennial Trophy was one of a number of Sailing Trophies commissioned by the Admiral of the Royal Cork Yacht Club to mark the Cork300 Tricentenary in 2021.

The undulating base of Iroko represents the movement of the waves on which a Walnut yacht is sailing.

The sails are designed with a concave section between the main and jib to give an illusion of movement as she catches the light.

The Burgee is made from layered copper with the ‘Maid of Eireann’ club emblem engraved into the copper.

The “Tricentennial Trophy” will be awarded annually to the person who, in the view of the Club’s Admiral at the time, demonstrates a dedication and commitment to the club and through their hard work ensures that others benefit.

The first recipient of the is Club Archivist Dr.T. Paul McCarthy.
