John C. Jones, Jr. Trophy

SM Sailing Junior Singlehanded Championship (Jones Trophy)

The John C. Jones, Jr. Trophy was established in 1976 by his son, John C. Jones, III. Mr. Jones displayed a tremendous interest in junior sailing. He led the sailing program at the Menahaunt Yacht Club for many years. He also had a major role in the Cape Cod Knockabout Class. Mr. Jones' basic philosophy about sailing competition was that there was no disgrace in losing as long as  the game had been played hard and fairly. The Jones Trophy is awarded annually to the winner of the SM Sailing Junior Singlehanded Championship.

US Sailing has mandated that all qualifiers for junior championships be done at an open Area level regatta (in our case Area A). Therefore, you don't have to qualify through a local sailing association regattas.   SMSA decided to award the Jones trophy to the best finishing SMSA boats at the Area A regatta.
