George “Dad” Center Masters Trophy
A new perpetual trophy was added in 2015 to salute the masters paddlers in the race.
The Outrigger recycled a favorite trophy from the Walter J. Macfarlane Regatta, the Makule Trophy, which was awarded to the oldest paddlers in the Macfarlane, before masters categories were added to the race. The trophy was retired in 1988.
This trophy is created from a log slice. It was designed and created by Domie Gose and Hank Lass. Sitting atop the base is the hand carved koa canoe Leilani.
The names of the winning crews are on plaques.
