George Happ Memorial Trophy

The George Happ Memorial Trophy, which is awarded to the Class X Crew of the Year, pays tribute to a man who generously gave of his time and talent as general contractor when the clubhouse was built in 1969. For a number of years, the facility served as home to both the Sailing School and the Yacht Club. The winning crew is selected by the GLSS racing team coaches and the GLSS director for demonstrating extraordinary leadership. The Geneva Lake Sailing School donated the trophy.
