Alan Hidden Memorial Trophy
Alan Hidden left the Association monies in his will and a trophy was created in his memory. The Alan Hidden Trophy is awarded annually 'to an OGA member for the best outstanding performance by a young person (under 25 years of age)'.
Cape Horn Trophy
The Cape Horn Trophy is the belaying pin from 'MN Bark Endeavour' which travelled around the world, and was donated to the OGA by Patrick Reid, OGA of Western Australia. It is judged each year by Tom Cunliffe and Sam Poole to be awarded annually 'to an OGA member for outstanding seamanship performed by an individual in a single occurrence eg a rescue, or a most interesting log'.
David Cade Memorial Trophy
Donated to the OGA by Alison Cade, David’s widow, the David Cade Memorial Trophy is awarded annually 'to an OGA member who has made the most outstanding contribution to the Association during the year, over and above the normal call of duty'.
The Gaffers Globe Award was instigated by the late Jon Wainwright during his lifetime. It is awarded annually 'to an OGA member who has undertaken a major voyage relative to their boat and experience during the year'.
Grumpy II Cups
Grumpy II Cups for OGA youth were donated by George Jago and David Cade who thought they would make a suitable award for skipper and young crew member(s). The double cup is engraved on each underside ‘skipper’ and ‘crew’ and are awarded annually 'to an OGA skipper and young crew for an outstanding sailing achievement during the year'.
Gaffers Tales and Janty Cup
These two trophies are judged by the Gaffers Log Editor and awarded for 'the best contribution to Gaffers Log'. The Janty Cup is awarded to young contributors under the age of 25, or the author of a Youth Event report.
