Awarded to the first multihull yacht to finish the Queen of the Bay Race on corrected time, the GSBYRA Gallina Trophy was donated by the Dr. Jerome Laviano family. His son, Edmund G. Laviano became an early multihull sailor and advocate on Great South Bay. A common start for all yachts and helmsmen that meet requirements and 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.
