Geoff Evelyn Memorial Trophy awarded to Robin Eagleson

.
Geoff Evelyn Memorial Trophy has been awarded to Robin Eagleson of Ireland by Jim Farmer, Chairman of the International J/24 Class Association.

The Geoff Evelyn Memorial Trophy is awarded annually to the member that, in the opinion of the IJCA Chairman, has made the greatest contribution to the J/24 Class in the past year.

Eagleson received the award at the J/24 World Council Meeting, held on October 15 at the Rochester Yacht Club in New York, USA, site of the 2012 J/24 World Championship. According to Farmer, 'Robin has over the past year gone above and beyond the call of duty to address issues which were critical to the continued stability and success of the International J24 Class Association. Robin’s persistence, diligence and superb communication skills enabled him to attack these issues straight on and offer a solution that no one else had the ability to do. I especially appreciate his great sense of humor. I am sure to speak for the entire Class when awarding this Trophy and offer a huge 'Thank You' from all of us for his excellent contribution in 2011.

The next meeting of the J/24 World Council is scheduled to be held on October 13, 2012 at the Howth Yacht Club in Howth, Ireland, which will also serve as the host club for the 2013 J/24 World Championship. Representatives from each member nation of the J/24 Class are invited to attend this important annual meeting. J24 Class Association website

Blue skies, sunshine, 23 deg C, clean air, and the whole place looks as if has put on a party frock and got lit up. Wonderful.
