The Commodore Lucas Trophy was presented by Commodore John S. Lucas, Jr. in 1972 to the Broad Reachers of the Pass-a-Grille Yacht Club to promote yacht racing between female sailing groups in the Tampa Bay area and to encourage proficiency in seamanship, sportsman-like conduct, and outstanding expertise in this sport.

The Deed of Gift states that "Eligibility shall be by invitation to the selected organized women's sailing groups."

"The competition shall be held annually and shall consist of a series of five races with a minimum of three races, or a round-robin series, whichever is more desirable in the opinion of the Broad Reachers, in a one design class sailing yacht.  The series shall be a single-handed competition or, in the event that enough one-design sailing yachts become available large enough to accommodate a crew of three (skipper & two crew), then one team from each organization may compete."

 

The competition will be held in prams furnished by St. Petersburg Yacht Club at Pass-a-Grille. Each group is invited to enter two sailors. Having an alternate skipper is suggested.  Each club is also invited to supply one member to serve on a protest or race committee as needed. Spectators are most welcome and encouraged to attend.
