Benefactors's aMCSA Benefactor’s Trophy for the Men’s Single-handed Championship

The original MCSA Single-handed Championship Trophy was donated by several former MCSA Commodores. The trophy recorded the names of the MCSA Commodores from 1948 to 1968 as well as the winners of the Single-handed Championship between 1960 and 1968. However, over that period of time the trophy was broken and not repaired.

In 2000 George Griswold built the current Benefactor’s Trophy. The trophy is a copper sailboat sculpture done by Gordon Isco in 1982 in a glass case on a walnut base. His daughter Gina Isco was a member of the MCSA Executive Board that year. The sculpture was given to George Griswold by the 1982 Executive Board for service to the MCSA and in the Fall of 2003 a bottom layer was added to the trophy on which six circular emblems were attached to honor the Benefactors of the MCSA: The Chicago Yacht Club, The Detroit Yacht Club, Harken Yacht Equipment, North Sails, Patricia K Sullivan Memorial Trust and Vanguard Sailboats.
