Historical information
E. A. Franklin Memorial Trophy (Cup)
Donor: Edward Alfred Franklin
Deed of Gift: Yes
The trophy was originally donated by past Commodore E. A. Franklin and awarded to the International Star Class. He was Commodore in 1947/50 and again in 1953/55.
After his death in 1962, his son Rae Franklin changed the deed of the gift to become the E. A. Franklin memorial trophy and with the decline of the Star Class was for a short time then awarded to the Soling Class, and then to the E22 class.
However, it seems to have been awarded to the Dragon class instead and perhaps the Spooks Franklin Trophy which is awarded to the E22 replaced it.
First Winner: Leander, R. Franklin 1947/48
