Due to the generosity of former member Martin Bryan, the Otto Meik trophy for the then Olympic class Flying Dutchman has returned to RMYS.

Martin, of Metung, was a member of the Squadron in the early 1970s. He is a State and National titleholder in various classes, including Flying Dutchman and Couta boats.

He won the State title in 1974-5 and was presented with the trophy. However, that was the last year the Squadron raced that class of yacht. The fleet moved to Mordialloc after that.

Recently the trophy was unearthed in a storage chest and Martin decided it should be at RMYS.
