Awarded to the first yacht, regardless of type of hull or rig, to finish the Queen of the Bay Race, the GSBYRA Everitt Trophy, was donated by Theodore T. Everitt, a Past President of GSBYRA 1944-1946. As the Bellport Bay Yacht Club Delegate to GSBYRA in 1962, Everitt recognized the need to resolve controversy caused by multihull boats. A common start for all classes of yachts and helmsmen that meet requirements and sail the same course is tradition. Both the yacht and the helmsman must be from a GSBYRA Full Member Club. The Race Committee strives to set a course about eleven miles long.
