Honoree of the Claudia Sparks Cannon Charity Cup. The trophy, donated by Claudia’s family, is a perpetual award to be presented at the Houston Yacht Club’s annual charity regatta. Claudia grew up at HYC, was commodore of the Ragnots, loved to sail Sunfish, and was active as a Ragnot mom when her sons became sailors. She passed away from lymphoma in 1996. Since 1999 the trophy has been presented at the annual Leukemia Cup Regatta, which replaced the Club’s annual regatta that year.
