This is a silver rose bowl

Halifax Herald & Halifax Mail Trophy

This silver rose bowl was presented to the Squadron in 1935 by Senator William Henry Dennis (1887-1954), publisher of the Halifax Herald from 1920 and Conservative Senator for the Halifax, NS Division from 1932.

The trophy was presented as a perpetual challenge cup to be competed for in an ocean race from any New England port to Halifax and has been awarded during every Marblehead-to-Halifax Ocean Race since 1935.

When multihulls came on the scene, the trophy was allocated to the first monohull to finish the race.
