The Weatherford Trophy, Houston Yacht Club
AuthorHouston Yacht Club
The Weatherford Trophy was the most coveted prize at regattas in the mid-1920s. It was an Italian-made gold and silver cabin sloop model donated by member Jack Weatherford to the Houston Yacht Club in hopes of reviving sloop racing on the Bay. The trophy would be given to the skipper who won it three times. Competitions for the trophy continued well into 1925 when Ross Sterling and his Anita finally won it.
