Louis H. Orr, Jr. Trophy

Awarded to the GSBYRA Full Member Club Midget single-handed champion with the highest place finish, the Louis H. Orr, Jr. Trophy was donated by Glenn and Dianne Schmidt to commemorate Louis Orr, GSBYRA Past President 1970-1971 and GSBYRA Delegate to US Sailing 1984-1991. Each club is allowed unlimited entries. Female or male competitors cannot have reached their 15th birthday during the calendar year. GSBYRA first sailed the event in Sunfish and since 1997 sails the event in the Optimist. This event is a feeder to the Middle Atlantic Midget Championship for the William Merganthaler Trophy, an event rotated among eight Regional Associations: Eastern Connecticut, Eastern Long Island, Great South Bay, Hudson River, Barnegat Bay, Chesapeake Bay, North Jersey, and South Jersey. GSBYRA hosts the 2019 Midget Middle Atlantic Championship. (Revised 3/15/16, 3/2/17)
