Bert Ferris Cactus Cup

Bert Ferris Cactus Cup

At the commencement of the memorial service for Bert Ferris last Thursday, Commodore Charles Meredith announced the historic Cactus Cup will now be named the Bert Ferris Cactus Cup. 

This honours Bert’s membership since 1944, his extraordinary service to RMYS and his deep knowledge the Squadron’s history and protocols.  Bert competed in many Cactus Cups and he totally understood its origins and significance.
