The Cows Trophy Race

The Cows Trophy Race, first sailed in 1955 and won by Bill Ziegler on Bounding Home, is a wonderful race absolutely unique to the Stamford Yacht Club. It consists of an indeterminate number of legs all beginning and ending at Cows Bell R32. In the list of winners you will recognize many of the great Club boats and Club yachtsmen. The perpetual trophy itself is unique. Designed and donated by Ray Barger, it is a handsome reproduction of the actual Cows Bell. The next time you visit the clubhouse, take a look for it. Next October, be sure you do not miss this special Club race.
