East Coast Chandlery Marinestore recently commissioned a new trophy for Marconi Sailing club, who will award it to winners for outstanding achievements in sailing events.
The trophy will be known as the Marinestore Shipway Trophy. ‘It gets it’s name from the Shipway Yard in Maldon, historical home of the shipwright John Howard, who built many of the local barges’ , said Eleanor Callus (Managing Director) who’s Marinestore offices are located in Shipways yard.
On receiving the trophy, Peter Ward commented that the Marinestore Shipway Trophy will be a welcome addition to the trophies awarded by Marconi Sailing Club and that it would be awarded to someone for achievement in Keelboat / cruiser racing which is seeing a rapid growth in numbers at Marconi Sailing Club.
