As the sailing season draws to a close, it's time to turn attention to who wlll win the trophies in the Club cabinet at this year's laying up supper in November. The Sail and Power Committee will begin its deliberations for the awards early next month. For the first time, the committee is inviting members to nominate award winners in certain categories.

If you have written a voyage log, contributed to the Club in some way, or know someone who has, read on and make your recommendations by email to the Sail and Power Committee by Friday 20 September. Then come along to the Laying Up supper on Tuesday 5 November and find out whether your nomination is the trophy winner.
