Les Pound Shield
Donor: Victorian Jubilee Controlling Body
Deed of Gift:
In 1966 in recognition of his great contribution in developing the Jubilee class and to its ongoing success over many years, the Victorian Jubilee Controlling Body donated the Les Pound Shield. It is to be awarded to the best Victorian Jubilee yacht competing in the annual Huntingfield Cup.
Les Pound was one of the original owners, building his own BJ4 Aeolus in 1935. In his later years, to minimize the task of maintaining a timber boat, he purchased a fiberglass boat which he named after his wife Stella.
He was made an honorary life member in 1972.
First Winner: Aeolus BJ4, L. N. Pound 1966
