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’ve just finished over 200 Sabot sailing trophies for the Australian National Titles coming up in a couple of months time.
Here is just one of the designs we created for this event.
The senior Sabot sailors sail one up while the juniors sail two up. We were able to add the extra crew to the junior trophies.
This year these titles are being hosted by the South East Queensland Sabot Association and they were keen to include their distinctive logo on each trophy. We created this from brushed gold and red marble engraving material.
And the organiser seems to like them.
“I opened a couple of boxes to have a look and the trophies look fantastic. We had a Nationals committee meeting on the weekend and everybody loved the trophies!
Thank you again for all your help, I’m sure the sabot kids are going to be inspired to do well when they see the trophies they could win!”
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.
A new Minnow perpetual sailing trophy is always a challenge. To create a trophy that will be treasured for the next 20 years but isn’t going to cost a fortune right now.
The Victorian, Australia, Minnow Association had a few ideas of their own. A map of the state with the 3 inaugural winning boats. Not forgetting the class logo and that of their sponsors, Quantum Sails.
It didn’t work out too badly. The keeper trophies look good too.
While northern hemisphere sailors have tucked their boats away for the winter Manly Junior sailors in Australia are able to make the most of our summers. These trophies are for the New South Wales State Titles to be held in February.
Each trophy has a map of the state of NSW with the class logo engraved on it.
We also used slightly thicker bases than normal to accommodate the extra text on the engraved plaque.
The organisers were also after some cheaper trophies so we crafted these class logo trophies from natural timber colours.
