The Frank Bowne Jones Founder's Cup
The Founder's Cup was established to honor Frank Bowne Jones. A noted yachtsman, Jones was the first member of Indian Harbor Yacht Club and a founding member of the Yacht Racing Union of Long Island Sound, the US Power Squadron and the North American Yacht Racing Union, which is known today as US Sailing.
The Spartan Trophy
The recently restored 1913 yacht, SPARTAN, was part of the IHYC fleet for nearly two decades. In recognition of her 2010 return to IHYC to compete in the Classic Yacht Regatta, the Spartan Trophy is awarded to the second place finisher in the combined Classic and Spirit of Tradition classes excluding prior winners.
The Victory Award
This award goes to the overall winner racing on the short course.
