Lake Michigan Sail Racing Federation
Representatives to the
Yacht Racing Union of the Great Lakes Richardson Trophy
The winner of the LMSRF Match Racing Championship qualifies to represent LMSRF at the Richardson Trophy of the Yacht Racing Union of the Great Lakes. As the Richardson Trophy now accepts two teams from each of the six Great Lakes (the YRUGL includes Lake St. Clair as the 6th lake), LMSRF sends the top two from our Championship.

Tradition calls for the trophy to be filled with Stingers and nobody leaves until it's empty!
