NUTMEG TROPHY

                          (based on conversation with Mead Batchelor)

 

Don Stengler, commodore of the Milford Y.C., started the Nutmeg Regatta which was first sailed in 1952. The trophy was named after the state's nickname. The enthusiasm of the growing Mid-Conn fleet brought trophy into existence. The original trophy was very nice. However, it disappeared after one of the early regattas. It was then replaced by present trophy.

 

When the Nutmeg Regatta began the Mid-Conn fleet was wet-sailed. Thus, originally the visiting boats sailed out of oyster docks across the river from club. A crane was brought in for the regatta to launch the visiting boats. The club members put together a temporary dock on beach where hoists now are for the visiting boats to tie up to.
