The original Mercury Macklin Cup was presented to the Commodore at the time, Dave Macklin, by the Mercury Class Association for Chew hosting their championships. Originally for over 45s, it has been added to over the years to the current set of trophies. The Watts Junior trophy was presented by Cyril Watts, who ran a chandlery at the club and the Melvin Trophy by Herman Watson who sailed a Lark with his sons, little more is known about the latter.
Anniversary Cup.....probably speaks for itself ?!
