HYSA Laser A & B  
By Guy Fleming
We have been working through the trophy case from the left to the right and have completed the awards for the Laser States and for the Hawaii Laser Association Season's Points. We are entering into the Hawaii Youth Sailing Association (HYSA) Season's Points Awards. The first two awards have been rededicated for HYSA Laser A and B. HYSA has a separate set of eight regattas that are open to sailors who have not yet turned 24. 
 
The Laser A Trophy was formerly the Hawaiian Islands Fleet Season's Points Trophy for the Star Fleet from 1925 until World War II Broke out in 1941. The trophy was rededicated in 1989.   The HYSA Laser B Trophy was formerly the Atkinson Cup which was raced for once in 1924 and also rededicated in 1989. The past award winners for both trophies are as follows:
