The Ken & Chris Passingham Trophy.


The Passingham family have presented the club with a trophy to be awarded in memory of their parents Ken and Chris.  They were both active members of the Club for many years with Ken, serving as Hon Secretary, Vice Commodore and then Commodore from 1981-83 and Chris his wife, although not a sailor supported the shore activities and noted for her cakes in the galley.

The Committee and members are very happy to accept the trophy as a tribute to their years with the club and will shortly announce the event for which it will be awarded.
