This is a silver water jug

Bras d'Or Lakes Trophy

This silver water jug was presented to the Squadron in 1951 by The Honorable John Alexander Douglas McCurdy, Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia, 1947-1952.

It was originally to be raced for under the auspices of the Bras d'Or Yacht Club on an 18 mile course in the Bras d'Or Lakes immediately following the Marblehead to Halifax race but has, since 1985, been assigned exclusively to the Marblehead-to-Halifax Ocean Race.
