Awards

Three awards are made each year for best articles in Dinghy Cruising: Naylor Noggin for the best log of a cruise in a sailing dinghy; Peter Bick Cup, 'Peter's Pint' for best technical article; and the Editor's Burgee for the best report of a rally.

Naylor Noggin

Brian Naylor’s guidance for awarding his trophy: I decided that the Committee should choose the recipient to the following rules that are an indication of what I had in mind when the trophy was donated:

  • For passages mainly under sail.
  • Be adventurous without compromising safety.
  • Be influenced by the total distance sailed and the number of places visited.
  • It should be in a readable style with description, not just a dreary list of facts against dates.
  • If it has not already been published in the Bulletin (Dinghy Cruising) it should be published within an agreed time limit, say, within two years of the award (some accounts span more than a single issue).
