George H. Kiefer Perpetual Trophy

In 1970, the Kiefer family donated this round silver tray to the Yacht Club in memory of George H. Kiefer Sr., to be sailed for by the M-20 fleet for the first scheduled championship race in August. In 2007, it was rededicated to the Melges 24 Class to be awarded annually to the winner of a championship series race.
