PERPETUAL TROPHIES

THE TAHOE YACHT CLUB FOUNDATION PERPETUAL TROPHIES HISTORY

Perpetual Trophies. The very word – “Perpetual” – enduring and unsurpassed, the continuing of tradition. Fulfilling a dream and receiving recognition which will remain an everlasting benchmark in boating history.

Concours dreams and achievements are validated with first, second and third-place awards “in class” and with the presentation of special Perpetual trophies going to the most meticulously-restored, highest-point boats. Tahoe Yacht Club Foundation now has 17 of these special trophies made possible by the generous assistance of endowers, many who have competed and won their own share of precious “Concours silver, crystal, and mahogany” over the past 42 years of this event.

We invite you to learn more about Tahoe Yacht Club Foundation’s Perpetual Trophies, their history and their winners, by clicking on the listings below.

 

This is the Jordy Carlton Memorial Vintage Boat Perpetual Trophy. In 1973, Ed Grebitus, William Lyon, Burton Olson, Peter Carey, and Georgann Beckett presented this trophy in memory of their friend, Jordy Carlton. The winner of this award is decided by the Judging Committee on such qualities as authenticity of equipment, cleanliness, presentation, overall condition with consideration for age, and the judged point total.

This trophy is awarded according to balloting from the public attending the Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance. The most votes determine the winner. The Northern California / Lake Tahoe Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society endowed this trophy in 2002. It is believed that the late Glenn Wilson, a strong personality in the Tahoe Yacht Club, originated this trophy in the name of the new, at that time, Lake Tahoe Chapter of the ACBS in 1984, later changing its name to the Northern California / Lake Tahoe Chapter. The winning boat for this award is announced and awarded at the end of the last day of the Concours. The inscription on the trophy piece still reads, The Lake Tahoe Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society.
