Rod Stephens Trophy

I had never heard about it, but I am not American and I don't remember to hear about them here. I noticed them because the last was attributed to Alessandro di Benedetto and that one and his story I know well.

I have been with him and saw it's boat at the Dusseldorf boat fair and have wondered about a guy able to jury rig a boat in a creative way and in such manner that was able to take him back home from Cap Horn to Europe, fast and safely.

The boat still had the jury rig and I can tell you that was an work of art

I had saw also the other year's prices and they are all interesting and make a good and interesting reading.
