C.B. Johnston Trophy

In 1928, the Cleveland yacht Club held the C.B. Johnston Star boat Trophy, presumably sponsored by Johnston. It is unknown what year this trophy race first began, but Johnston was a highly active member of Cleveland Yacht Club and involved in the Inter-Lake Yachting Association’s racing committee for Power Boats in the 1920s. If you know more about this trophy race’s history, please contact collections@nmgl.org.
