Awards & Trophies

Bengt Julin Trophy

The trophy is named for Bengt Julin, an international judge and strong supporter of
women’s sailing. A modest man and sailing philanthropist, Julin championed the event
from its inception and was instrumental in making it an international competition.

Julin presented the very first trophy to Betsy Alison and retired the original to her after she had won it three times consecutively. Alison of Newport R.I. had an unbroken winning streak competing against teams from a dozen or more nations from 1991 through 1997. In 2007, Sally Barkow matched Alison by winning the championship for the third time.

To maintain the integrity of the trophy, it will remain on display or in safe quarters at the National Governing Body of the sport – U.S. Sailing Association
