Venture Trophy

The Venture Trophy was offered to the Pleon Yacht Club at the conclusion of its Fiftieth Anniversary Year, 1937, by Fleet Captain Nancy Leiter in appreciation for what the Pleon had meant to her while a junior yachtswoman. It was donated to encourage sailing among the girls of the Pleon Yacht Club and their participation in the Mrs. Charles Francis Adams Cup races and eliminations.
It is to be contested for annually by the female sailors of Pleon. The names of winners are inscribed on the Venture Trophy, which remains in the permanent custody of the Pleon Yacht Club.
