Dave McFaull Memorial Regatta Trophy
 
The glass sailboat on the marble base in our trophy case is the McFaull Memorial Trophy. Then R/C Sail Jon Stanley coordinated the donation of the trophy to honor and remember David Mcfaull after his death in 1997. David with crew Mike Rothwell became Hawaii’s first Olympic sailing medalists when they won silver medals at the 1976 MontrĂ©al Olympic Games. They sailed McFaull’s boat Zomby Woof in the Tornado Class and raced seven times in nine days, with one 22-mile race daily. The medals culminated years of strenuous training for both men. McFaull, a Punahou graduate, learned to sail at the Waikiki Yacht Club. He gained intercollegiate sailing experience at Cornell, then returned home and worked as a disc jockey at KUMU Radio while training for the Olympics. Great Britain won the gold and West Germany won the Bronze. The two Silver Olympic medals are also on display in our trophy cases. The Cal 20 Class Boat Regatta was renamed the McFaull Memorial Regatta in 1998.
 
David was also a US Sailing certified Judge. It is raced for each year as part of the Waikiki Yacht Club Beach Fleet and Class Boat regatta.
