Historical information
Ingénue Trophy
Donor: David James and Rosie Colahan
Deed of Gift:
David and Rosie owned the yacht Ingénue which they regularly raced at RBYC and elsewhere, including the 2-handed race to Japan, and two races to Vanuatu. They have both been very active in assisting new owners learning to sail and encouraging them to join in regular racing at RBYC. They also were very active in encouraging women crews and skippers to join in regular racing.
The Ingénue trophy is awarded to the winner of a short series of mid-distance races. In 2010/11 the series was extended to allow for Cruising Division 1 and 2 with trophies allocated for both (click on the right arrow on the phot to see both trophies)
First Winner: Rampallion, R. Incleden 2007/08
