Awards & Trophies

F. Gardner Cox Sportsmanship Trophy

The F. Gardner Cox Sportsmanship Trophy is US Sailing’s oldest junior championship sportsmanship award and is a perpetual trophy awarded per fleet to the team (if any) who exhibits the highest tradition in fairness during the regatta.

Originally a single sportsmanship trophy, the Gardner Cox Trophy, was awarded for three Junior Championships, even though the three events were often sailed at two different venues. By 2004, all three championships had their own sportsmanship trophy and the Cox Sportsmanship is now awarded in the triplehanded division.
