In 1980, Walter Guild, the grandnephew of Walter Macfarlane, dedicated a magnificent koa racing canoe model he made as a trophy honoring his grandmother Muriel Flanders, Walter Mac’s sister.
The hand-carved koa outrigger canoe sitting on the koa base is named Alaka`i.
The trophy is awarded to the winning Boys 18 crew. The names of each winning crew member are engraved on bronze plaques which are attached to the base.
This trophy is one of only four in the regatta listing the names of the winning crews, the others being the Girls 18s and the Senior Men and Women.
