2016 Manhattan Yacht Club Trophy

In 2002 the Manhattan Yacht Club dedicated a trophy to the British Virgin Islands sailing community.  For several years it became a team challenge between the Royals and the Loyals...

...until in 2016 when we were delighted to add another team to the mix and compete against the MYC for their own trophy!
