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!”
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.
The Javelin Nationals are being held in Perth this year. And it just so happens my daughter, who lives there, will be competing. She wanted her dad to make them some extra special trophies but I said, “No, you can just have the same trophies we supply to everyone else. No special favours”.
We shipped them off today. I reckon she’ll like them even if they are just our standard designs. Customised for the Javelin of course.
We normally only make them in 3 sizes but here we made some larger ones, 350mm (14″) tall for first place, followed by our standard 300mm, 250mm and 200mm tall for 2nd to 4th.
The SB3 sports boat is a new and growing class in Australia. We love new classes because they don’t yet have any sailing trophies! So we’ve made quite a few for this class over the last couple of years.
This year the Australian states of Tasmania and Victoria were holding their inaugural SB3 titles. So we made SB3 perpetual sailing trophies with state maps in the background and the logo of the Australian distributor as well as the class sail insignia.
We make a lot of Optimist trophies which travel to all corners of the globe. These went to the International Optimist Association of South Australia. We often add the state or country as a background but in this case we decided against it as the outline of SA is boring. The customer agreed and she lives there!
So we went with the club burgee. Much better. They also grabbed some keeper trophies.
