Awarded for the best over all performance in any class by a member of a Full Member Club at the Babylon Fourth of July Invitational Regatta, the “Cappy” Arink Trophy is dedicated to E. Carleton Arink, a Past President of GSBYRA from 1955-1956, a former Chairman of Race Week, Commodore of the Narrasketuck One Design Association 1946-47, and a life long bay sailor. Arink designed the Narrasketuck burgee and emblem. His crew, Bill Torrey and Ted Zimmerman, donated the trophy, the transom of a Narrasketuck, to GSBYRA. Two wood boards with engraved plates now hang below the transom.
