NBYC Trophies

 

The Normandy Beach Yacht Club (NBYC) has Sunday afternoon races during the summer. Adults race in Marshall Sanderlings and Sandpipers as well as various sailboats of other sizes in a handicapped auxiliary fleet. Junior sailors race Optimist Prams, Club 420s and Lasers. Our sailors compete in Sanderlings, Sandpipers, Club 420s, and Laser races during the season in pursuit of coveted Barnegat Bay Yacht Racing Association (BBYRA) trophies.
 

Recent and Past Accomplishments from NBYC Members

Jimmy Muller was the Club 420 BBYRA Champion in 2013.

In 2011 our young sailor Katelyn Richerts won the BBYRA Laser Radial Championship and also took first place in this class at the final race of the year at the Seaside Park Yacht Club. All of her awards were given out at the NBYC's end of season awards ceremony on Labor Day weekend.

Additionally in 2011 Normandy Beach Yacht Club was awarded the prestigious Len Egee Memorial Trophy (right) by the BBYRA at the end of that year's regatta season. This trophy is awarded to the club who had the most Junior Qualifiers for the season.

Finally, in 2011 NBYC had the club's highest number of qualifiers in the BBYRA. Jim Muller/Janet Howard, Clark Convrey/Larry Reid, and Peter and Anne Schwartz qualified in the Sandpiper fleet; Virginia Newman qualified in the Sunfish fleet; and Jimmy Muller qualified in the Club 420 fleet. We did have other sailors compete in the BBYRA, but did not sail enough races to receive a qualifier flag.

The NBYC Trophies - Their History and Past Winners

We have posted information, below, about the history of the NBYC Trophies and their winners over the years:


 

TED LaPIER PERPETUAL TROPHY

The Ted LaPier Perpetual Trophy was established in 1994 to honor the memory of R. Theodore LaPier a past Commodore (1982-1983) of the Barnegat Bay Yacht Racing Association (BBYRA) and a long standing member of the Normandy Beach Yacht Club.

As a youngster, Ted was very active in sailing on Barnegat Bay and represented the Normandy Beach Yacht Club in many local and regional sailing regattas. Ted also served as Vice Commodore of the Normandy Beach Yacht Club for many years, designing the sailing courses still used today in the club’s Sunday Races.

This trophy, which is a replica of Ted's Sanderling - The Elusive Eleven - is awarded each year to the winner of the Sanderling Class when the BBYRA is sailed at Normandy Beach. A small plaque on the trophy states very succinctly the club’s respect for Ted. It reads: “Ted LaPier was a sailor whose substantial contributions to the NBYC & BBYRA are memorialized in this perpetual trophy.”

Over the past 20+ years, this trophy has been won by many of the premier Sanderling skippers on Barnegat Bay.

THE COMMODORE'S CUP

Glenn Zimmerman, winner of the 2015 Sanderling Regatta, recieves the
Commodore's Cup from pro Steve Foster as his crew Bob Reago and
Second and Third Place Skippers Bob Adams and Charles Barclay watch

The Commodore's Cup is awarded annually to the winner of the Normandy Beach Yacht Club's Sanderling Regatta, which is held on the BBYRA off Saturday between the first and second halves of the BBYRA racing season.

The NBYC Sanderling Regatta was the brainchild of Fred Collani, Commodore of the club in 1978 and an avid Sanderling sailor and competitor in the BBYRA.

Initially, the race was only for NBYC Sanderling skippers, but very quickly was opened to all Sanderling sailors on the Bay. Over the past 30+ years, some of the top Bay Sanderling skippers have been winners of the Commodore's Cup. A record of these winners are listed here.

THE PHILLIP'S TROPHY

The Phillips’s Trophy was the gift of Chauncey and Chara Phillips and was awarded to the winner of the Lightning Class when the BBYRA was sailed at NBYC.

The trophy was first awarded in 1957 and was continued until 1999, when it went into semi retirement, because Lightnings no longer compete at NBYC on BBYRA Day.

Many of the most outstanding Bay Lightning sailors have been winners of the Phillips Trophy.

THE BRONANDER TROPHY

2011 Bronander Trophy is presented to Jeanne Pauly (center) by
Vice Commodore Bob Scott (left) and Commodore Linda Graham (right)

The Bronander Trophy was created in 1958 by Past Commodore William Bronander, when he was Vice Commodore of the club. As Vice Commodore, Bill was very involved with the Junior Sailing Program and felt that there should be an award for that sailor, who exhibited outstanding sportsmanship. In those early days the junior sailors raced every Wednesday and Sunday morning in Penguins.

In 1973 the club Directors felt that the criteria for awarding the Bronander Trophy should be changed to honor that club member, who gave outstanding service over and above that which would be expected, to the club. Thus, beginning in 1973 and succeeding years, the trophy has been awarded to a club member for outstanding service to the Normandy Beach Yacht Club.

THE GINNY THROWER MEMORIAL TROPHY

The Ginny Thrower Memorial Trophy was created in June of 2008 in remembrance of Virginia (Ginny) Thrower, a long time supporter of sailing in the Barnegat Bay Yacht Racing Association and the Normandy Beach Yacht Club sailing programs.

Ginny Thrower together with her husband Troy joined the Normandy Beach Yacht Club in 1965. In the intervening years Ginny contributed in many ways to the club. She sailed annually in the club’s Sunday Series, which was initially sailed in Sunfish. For many years Ginny was the Treasurer of the Normandy Beach Yacht Club and in later years served as the official scorer for the club’s Auxiliary fleet.

The trophy will be awarded annually to that individual who exhibits outstanding sportsmanship and concern for his fellow sailors in the club’s annual Sunday series.
