DOUG MORRISON NEW YEAR'S DAY MEMORIAL CUP
The Doug Morrison New Years Day Memorial Cup was created in 2010 and is awarded each year to the TCYC boat that wins the annual TCYC New Years Day race.
Doug Morrison was a marine lawyer, and was a friend and crewmember to many TCYC boats including Lodestar, Fancy Free and Presto. He loved sail racing and one of the things he loved best was jib trim, reveling in getting the sail drawing just right. Doug died doing what he loved best, trimming the jib during the start sequence for 2010 Spring Regatta aboard Marhenah.
Prior to his death, Doug had railed against the anchored “Le Mans” start that TCYC implemented for the New Years Day Race, and said he’d never race in such an event. But when he was convinced to come out and try it, he had a grand time and decided it was a good idea after all. This trophy is awarded in memory of Doug’s love of a well-trimmed sail, and his willingness to try – and change his mind about – one of TCYC’s just-a-little-different races.

Bill Wood was a member of TCYC from 1981 until his death in 1990. He was an active racer in his Yamaha 33 “IOA NINJA”. Bill died in his West Vancouver home on sail past day, May 12, 1990.

DAVID JORDAN MEMORIAL TROPHY FOR OUTSTANDING CONTRIBUTIONS TO TCYC
The David Jordan Memorial Trophy is awarded annually to honour a member who has made an outstanding contribution to the Tiddly Cove.
David Jordan was a member of TCYC from 1976 until his death in 1986. He was a member of the executive for three years. He was Commodore in 1979. David was a quiet gracious type who consistently worked behind the scenes to make the club a success. By honouring members who themselves make outstanding contributions to the club, this trophy commemorates David’s own commitment. It was fabricated by member Barry Clarke.

LOG BOOM AWARD
The Log Boom Award was conceived as a reward for not quite succeeding. This is as opposed to all other trophies presented in Tiddly Cove, which are for winning.
The Log Boom Award was named and initially presented for the all-too-common action which occurs when rafting to a log boom: falling off the boom.
The Log Boom Award was never intended to single out individuals for their unfortunate incidents, but rather to inject a little humour into sailing and racing, which at times is taken far too seriously. In this tone, very few rules are required to administer the awarding and upkeep of this trophy.
The non-rules are:
