The new, at least in Australia, Waszp foiling class is certainly a challenge to represent as a Waszp sailing trophy with all those fancy sail graphics. But the addition of some engraved plaques works well on these Waszp timber keeper trophies.
We don’t always make sailing trophies, sometimes we branch out into exciting new directions.
Such as when a teacher from the high school wanted to commemorate the memory of a local piano tuner. They wanted something simple but stunning for the memorial perpetual trophy plus a little keeper that the winning student could take away with them.
This is what we came up with. Happy to say the teacher, and the school, were delighted.
This special perpetual sailing trophy has just arrived in Marina del Rey, California. This perpetual depicts :-
The sun setting behind the Santa Monica hills
A palm tree on the beach
Symmetrical and asymetric spinnakers
A double base for many years of annual plaques.

Hi Steve, It arrived safe and sound, on time, and BEAUTIFUL! It will be the most handsome trophy in Marina del Rey! Heck.. California! Thank you for your wonderful service. Any doubts I had working with a company so far away melted right from the start with your prompt replies. As an artist myself (custom nautical jewelry), I love your method of mockup, I knew what I was getting when I placed the order. I have a feeling you may hear more from this area when this gets seen.

This sailor was retiring from the presidency of his university’s sailing team and wanted to leave a Firefly Perpetual sailing Trophy as memento of his time at the club.
He had his eye on this wonderful trophy that went to Georgetown University in the USA. But as a student, finances were a factor so we created a Firefly perpetual sailing trophy that was within his restricted budget.
His requirements were:-
A base large enough to take a few years annual plaques.
A depiction of the Firefly sailing class.
Class logo on the mainsail.
Newcastle University Coat of Arms.
We incorporated all these and produced a very nice Firefly Perpetual Trophy.
The customer was pretty happy with it.
The trophy has just arrived and it’s looking great. Thank you to Steve and yourself. I’ll be sure to recommend you to others.
