ROYAL CORK CUP 1859 - (BOAT OF THE WEEK IRC)
Winner - Ford Cork Week 2002 - Prophet (Sigma 38) Grenville Snowden, Hamble, U.K.
For the Boat of the Week, any IRC yacht in classes which require endorsed IRC certificates. This magnificent silver flagon is engraved RCYC Challenge Cup presented by B. Carroll, Esq. 1859. It was for competition between yachts in Cork Harbour. In 2002 that restriction doesn't apply! The race officer's report for the 21st July 1859, shows that the winner was "Flirt", owned by Captain Harry O'Bryan, who was second over the line but won on corrected time.

DREAM SALVER 1858 - (TOP IRM OR SPORTSBOAT)
Winner - Ford Cork Week 2002 - Babbalaas Bach (1720) - John Rickards, Pwllheli, Wales
For the highest placed yacht overall in either new High Performance Class (IRM) or any Sportsboat class. In 1858, on the 16th September at 11 o'clock, exactly as the officer of the day's notes tell us, 12 large yachts started from the club line off Queenstown (now called Cobh). The 40 mile course was Spit Beacon to Starboard, Great Sovereign Island to Starboard, Spit Beacon, to Port and finish at the Clubhouse. Four hours and 42 minutes and 20 seconds later, "Dream", 31 tons, owned by Martin Hayes, crossed the finishing line. "Vigilant", 34 tons, owned by John C. Atkins, came in just 15 seconds later. Martin Hayes kept first place on corrected time and collected significant prize money for his efforts, but more importantly, he won for the first time the trophy which became known as the "Dream Salver".

FLOTILLA SALVER 1915 (WINNER 1720 CLASS)
Winner - Ford Cork Week 2002 - Babbalaas Bach
The winning 1720 will be presented with this elegant salver. It was presented to the RCYC by the Commanding Officers of the First Flotilla Sloop Squadron, based in Cork Harbour 1915 - 1919.

GALTEE-MORE CUP 1897 (TOP SWAN)
Winner - Ford Cork Week 2002 -Island Fling (Swan 60) (IRM) - Paul Winkelman, Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club
For the highest overall placed Swan at Ford Cork Week 2002. This formidable piece of silverware, which most modern silversmiths would take a lifetime to make, was given to the Royal Cork Yacht Club in 1897 by John Gubbins, Esq.

NORTHAMPTON SALVER 1896 (TOP CLASSIC YACHT)
Winner - Ford Cork Week 2002 - Marigold - Ml Thornhill, Royal Thames Y.C.
The winning Classic Yacht in our new Classic Class main fleet will be presented with the elegant Northampton Salver. This silver salver was presented to the Royal Cork Yacht Club by the Captain and Officers of the HMS Northampton which was then stationed in Cork.

KINSALE KETTLE 1859 (TOP LOCAL YACHT)
Winner - Ford Cork Week 2002 - Checkmate (IRC4) - Mike McCarthy, Royal Cork Yacht Club
The highest placed south coast of Ireland yacht in the Boat of The Week rankings at Ford Cork Week 2002 will be presented with this stunning example of Victorian craftsmanship. It was first raced for as the "Kinsale Cup" at Kinsale Harbour Regatta in 1859, when "Sybil" (39 tons) owned by Sir John Arnott, beat "Glance" (35 tons) owner Major Longfield, by 15 seconds. In July 1860, "Sybil", skippered by amateur helmsman Henry O'Bryan, won the first Irish Offshore Race from Dublin Bay to Cork Harbour (17 entries). "Sybil" finished just three minutes clear. "Sybil" went on to retain the Kinsale Cup, which then became a perpetual trophy of the Royal Cork Yacht Club and was affectionately nicknamed the "Kinsale Kettle". It was brought out of hibernation to launch the new Cork Week in 1986, when it spent a night in Yehudi Menuin's safe before being taken to the London Boat Show for the launch party.

ATLANTIC FLEET TROPHY 1907 (FARTHEST TRAVELLED CREW) - Winner - Ford Cork Week 2002 - Small Libation(IRC0) Beneteau 47.7 - Owned by Michael Parker, Lymington - crew - six from South Africa, two from Australia
This is for the crew and support team who have travelled the greatest total distance to be at Ford Cork Week 2002. The Royal Navy's Atlantic Fleet visited Cork Harbour frequently and in thanks for hospitality shown to them in 1907 they presented the Royal Cork Yacht Club with this elegant silver model of an early 18th century battleship. Cork Harbour is one of the world's most sheltered harbours and from earliest times until today has been used by naval forces and visiting sailors. This trophy is presented to mark Cork's continuing welcome for sailors from distant parts of the world.
