Black Point – Petersen Trophy

This slender silver vase was originally called the Black Point Trophy and was presented to the Yacht Club in 1935 for competition in what was referred to then as the ILYA Cub Class, permanent ownership to the owner of the same yacht winning it twice in three annual races. The Petersen brothers, Edward and Conrad, retired the trophy after winning it in 1936 and 1938 in their Ekke Nekkepen . In 1967, Dr. Edward Petersen donated the trophy to the Yacht Club in honor of his grandfather, Captain Eduard Petersen (1834-1905), who sailed his schooner Segler on many ocean voyages out of his home port of Kiel, Germany. The renamed Black Point – Petersen Trophy, a perpetual trophy, is awarded to the Class C boat placing third in the championship series.
