Silver Cup. The Coupe Bernard Argod was donated by Bernard Argod who livein Paris as a trophy for Solent to Cherbourg race. M.Argoed was a French importer for the Atalanta. He imported A136 as a demonstrator at the Paris Boat Show in 1962 and this led to more sales. In 1962 he presented the cup to encourage entries in a whitsun Solent-Cherbourg race. Unfortunately this never quite got established. Over the years the exact award has varied and more recently it has not been awarded very often.
