Awarded for the best season score at Invitational Regattas and the East and West Cup Championships by a Narrasketuck class yacht, or the class yacht, which GSBYRA officers deem as leading class on the bay, the Charles A. Axtmann Memorial Trophy, a sterling silver Tiffany trophy, was purchased with money raised in small and large donations from children and his many adult sailing friends to honor the Bellport builder of numerous Narrasketucks (143, 152, 153, 160, 169, and 170) during his lifetime. Axtmann was known for building light weight boats. Eventually the Narrasketuck One Design Association developed a minimum weight rule of 800 pounds.
