The Heber Trophy is awarded annually based upon seamanship, sportsmanship, and character. The Trophy was named for former Governor Reg Heber who died as a result of his tireless efforts to find a friend who had capsized and gone missing on the lake. The recipient is selected by a secret committee appointed by the Commodore.  CLICK HERE for the full story.
