Awarded to the first conventional, single-hull yacht to finish the Queen of the Bay Race on corrected time, the Great South Bay Handicap Trophy was donated by Captain John Tuthill, who published the Patchogue Advance. A common start for all classes of yachts and helmsmen that meet requirements and all sail the same course is tradition. All yachts are rated using Portsmouth Numbers for the handicap. 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 in length.
