Matthew Fontaine Maury Bowl


In 1973, an award was created by gift of the Cruising Class. This gift was made possible by the special generosity of Reid Dunn and Ray Toms. The basis for the award is "outstanding contribution to sailing." The Bowl is to be a perpetual trophy to be awarded annually by the Board of Trustees of the Fishing Bay Yacht Club; however, for any year for which the Board may determine that a suitable award cannot be made, the award shall be withheld. Generally, the award will be made to members of the Fishing Bay Yacht Club for contribution to sailing at Fishing Bay. In exceptional cases, however, the Board shall not be restricted in these respects. The award shall be accompanied by a citation describing the outstanding contribution to sailing on which the award was based.
