The Atalanta Trophy - a wooden model of A12

First Atalanta in the West Mersea Regatta (previously Round the Island Race)

Wooden Model of A12 in a glass case.  The Atalanta Trophy was created by Fairey Marine in 1958 and awarded to the first Atalanta in the Isle of Wight ‘Round the Island’ race.

When entries to the Round the Island race dwindled in the early 1970s the trophy was re-assigned to for the first Atalanta in the West Mersea Regatta races.
