H. R. Hough Trophy

In 1939, Commodore H. R. Hough donated this handsome silver urn for competition in Class E, specifying that ownership should go to the skipper who wins it three times in five consecutive years. In 1965, Robert E. Pegel achieved this, and in 1970 he redonated the trophy for competition in Class E as a perpetual trophy. It is awarded to the winner of a regularly scheduled championship series race.
