History of the Trophy Name

Mrs. Owen Churchill presented the trophy to SCYA on January 4, 1986 in memory of her husband.

Owen Churchill:
Churchill became the primary patron and team captain of the United States Olympic Yachting team at both the 1932 (Los Angeles) and 1936 (Berlin) Olympic Games. Churchill was also a lifetime member of the Los Angeles Yacht Club, where memorabilia of his exploits is on display to this day. (Webmaster note: there are also items at California Yacht Club in Marina del Rey). During the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles, special recognition was given to Churchill by Peter Ueberroth for his lifelong efforts to promote sailing. Churchill's Star Fleet yacht, the Angelita, was fully restored for the occasion and re-christened at the time in Los Angeles harbor.
