The Centenarian of the Year Award, organised by Classic Boat magazine and the Gstaad Yacht Club, was launched in 2017. Any boat of 100 years or more, which is still sailed in a largely authentic way, is eligible. The independent panel of judges is happy to consider any kind of sail boat, including cruising boats, race yachts and former work boats. Each boat should have achieved something significant in the past year, be it a long cruise, a race win, a major restoration or something else noteworthy.
Any owners or admirers of suitable centenarians are encouraged to send nominations to the Gstaad Yacht Club at email@example.com

The cup is made in the Bauhaus style (1919-1933), embodies a straightforward simplicity expressed through precious material for streamlined, modern aesthetics.
