The Stu Silvestri Award for Best Race Management

The Stu Silvestri trophy is awarded to the ECSA member club who shows the best race management. Stu was a member of Thames Yacht Club and proper race management was her passion. As the secretary of ECSA she worked to promote fair sailing in this area. She was also an engineer at Electric Boat and raced her Ranger 26 “Jester” with her family. Her daughters followed her path and scored very well in the Blue Jay Nationals. Her son, Stewart, competed in multiple America’s Cup campaigns.
