William H. Freytag Perpetual Trophy

In 1947, Mr. and Mrs. William H. Freytag presented this large Revere bowl to the Yacht Club for the Cub fleet, later called Class X. It is a perpetual skipper’s trophy for the winner of a race originally sailed on the Saturday or Sunday before Labor Day. It is now awarded to the winner of a Class X championship series race.
