The Upside Down Trophy

a.k.a. The Horizontal Trophy

The “Famed” Upside Down Trophy is awarded by Riverton Yacht Club annually to the member who performed the most spectacular dumb stunt or the most dumb stunts during the year. We have records going back to 1937 of the “winners” however these records do not include, in every case, the story behind their selection. We know that there are members out there who remember the stories and we would like to add them to our file. If you know a story or know who does please E-mail the information to: RYC_Sailing@msn.com . Anonymous replies mailed to the Club will also be gratefully accepted; Riverton Yacht Club, P.O. Box 75, Riverton, NJ 80877
