A Cat - Bay Head Race Winner

Nelson R. Hartranft Trophy

The Nelson R. Hartranft Trophy, donated to the Bay Head Yacht Club by Peter R. Kellogg in 1990, is in honor of Nelson Hartranft's many years of dedication to the A-Cat class on Barnegat bay.

Nelson R. Hartranft

At one time, Nelson owned the Bat, The Spy, The Mary Ann and the Lotus. He also had David Beaton & Sons build the Wasp to the plans and specifications of one of the original A-Cats.

The Nelson R. Hartranft Trophy is to be awarded each year at the Bay Head Yacht Club's Barnegat Bay Yacht Racing Association race day, to the winner of the A-Cat class.
