IHYC Race - A Cat Winner

J. Willard Morgan Cup

This trophy was first awarded in 1903 to the yacht Bouquet from the Island Heights Yacht Club. An abstract of the original Deed of Gift is available, to show some of the changes since 1903.

The Cup is kept permanently at the IHYC club house, with a "keeper" trophy presented to the winner.
