Inaugural Race for the “Jim Woodward Penfold Trophy” Sunday 5th September 2021

As you are aware Jim Woodward passed away earlier this year. In order to mark and recognise Jim’s outstanding service to SSC, the commitment to the Merlin Rocket class, and the love of the sport, a special trophy has been commissioned which has significance to Jim, Merlin sailing, his family and close friends.

The trophy that will be presented on the day will be the “Jim Woodward Penfold Trophy”. The significance of the Trophy goes back to the inception of Shustoke Sailing Club in the mid-seventies. It was at this time that the Merlin fleet really took hold encouraging others from nearby Tamworth to join Shustoke with its bigger expanse of water. John Penfold (from the renowned Penfold family that produced the famous Penfold golf ball as seen in James Bond Movie Goldfinger) presented the trophy back in the late seventies. John and Sue Penfold will be accompanying Carole Woodward with friends and family at the presentation and it is understood that Jim’s son Peter will be competing on the day.

Rob Marlow has been working behind the scenes to produce the trophy and I’m sure you will agree has made a fantastic job of this prize for which I am sure Jim would approve.
