"Awarded for a period of one year in recognition of Outstanding Sportsmanship in the Barnegat Bay Yacht Racing Association."
This award recognizes outstanding sportsmanship and conduct. Any sailor, skipper or crew, senior or Junior is eligible to be nominated for this award. "If no ones name readily comes to mind during the racing season, there is no need to make this award."
"Also, if someone has already earned recognition for good conduct during any of the past few seasons I see no reason why the award couldn't be made this year on that account."
Slade Dale This trophy was donated by F. Slade Dale in June of 1936, in memory of his father - Orton G. Dale.
The original bronze cup has had three silver bands and bases added over the years, the most recent in 2005, to make room for the winners names.
