First presented in 1979, the Macfarlane Makule Trophy was 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 winners of the Makule race appear on silver plaques on the log and base of the trophy.
The trophy was retired in 1998 when OHCRA added additional masters races to the regatta schedule and the Makule race was deemed no longer needed.

In 1992 for the Macfarlane Regatta’s 50th anniversary, the Club held a relay race in celebration of the 1943 event with the Canada Dry Cup being presented once again to the winner. OHCRA has since declined renewal of the race due to safety consideration.
