US Sailing 
Sportsmanship Award
A US Sailing perpetual plaque located in the Board Room
 
 One of the smallest trophies in our Club has the greatest accomplishment attached to it, The US Sailing Waikiki Yacht Club Sportsmanship Trophy.  Previously know as the United States Yacht Racing Union, the winner is selected by the Rear Commodore for Sail and the Commodore each year to honor the Waikiki Yacht Club’s member who showed the most sportsmanship that year. 
 
The winner is announced at the Club’s annual sailing banquet to the sailor, regardless of age or sex, who has best exemplified fine sportsmanship at our Club during the past year.  Their contribution may be a single exemplary act or it may have been a gradual, through consistent example on as well as off the water, through instruction and encouragement of others, or anything else that best exemplifies the finest traditions of our sport.
