The LMYC enjoys a great sailing history on Lake Mohawk.  In sorting through sailing trophies, Perry Anderson came upon a wooden box with the following inscription: Lake Mohawk Yacht Club, S.C.I.R.A., Fleet Championship.  S.C.I.R.A. is an abbreviation for "Snipe Class International Racing Association".

The contents of the box was special. It was a Snipe Perpetual Trophy for the years 1933 - 1965.  The award winners were as follows:
