Greta Stewart against Albert Stanley in the 2015 Nationals at Takapuna. Click the photo for a record of all the trophy winners back to when the Tauranga Cup was first presented in 1940. Also fleet sizes. Note that up until 1980 (?), the Tauranga Cup was an Interclub competition - one boat per club, though often sailors that missed their clubs nomination would sail for Clubs that had no P's. Fleet sizes jumped up considerably after this when it became an open competition.

Sandspit Yacht Club has framed the Boat Ribbons from the 1992 contest - each skipper used to take a bunch of ribbons to the contest for trading:
Congratulations once again to Isaac McHardie (Hamilton Yacht Club) on a very well deserved victory in the Tauranga Cup. He was kept honest throughout the regatta by George Gautry (Muritai Yacht Club) and Jayvee Buchanan (Charteris Bay Yacht Club). The regatta was sailed in a variety of conditions with a little bit of something to suit everyone. The sailors had a great time and are looking forward to the next event for the mighty P-class.
Congratulations to Isaac McHardie (Waikato-Thames) who successfully defended the Tanner Cup today. After being locked almost neck and neck with Nick-Egnot Johnson (North Harbour) overnight, Isaac put a 3rd and a 1st (his third from six races) on the board to take a clear 1st place overall with Jayvee Buchanan (Canterbury) edging past Nick by the barest of margins to take 2nd place by 1 point
