The Richard H. Roberts Trophy for Best Circuit Party

The Richard H. Roberts trophy is awarded to the ECSA member club that hosts the best after race party of the circuit. This is decided by a vote of ECSA members. Richard H. “Dick” Roberts was a key fixture of Connecticut sailing. He graduated from the Naval Academy, and was an engineer at Electric Boat. A member of Thames Yacht Club and the Off Soundings Club, he held many offices in both. As secretary of ECSA he worked tirelessly to refine and govern this sport, helping all clubs with writing Sailing Instructions and hosting Race Management seminars.
