I made a fancy perpetual sailing award for the Larchmont Yacht Club, New York, early last year.
They must have liked it, they’ve just ordered another one.
This time they wanted a wall hanging along the lines of their existing trophies. With enough room on the frame for 40 years worth of annual plaques.
For their new sports boat class the Viper 640.
With a representation of the Execution Rocks lighthouse on the western end of Long Island Sound.
And the club burgee cut from natural timber colours.
The sea is represented by Sassafras and the sky by Huon Pine. A Red Cedar frame with that wonderful spinnaker shaped from New Guinea Rosewood.
As with all our trophies all natural timber colours.
The boat and lighthouse protrude out from the background which you can see from these angled photos.
And the back of this sailing award is finished off with hangers and rubber mounts so it doesn’t mark the wall it’s hanging on.
