The Hugh Kilmer Trophy was given in his memory to the Storm Trysail Club by his many shipmates and friends who appreciated his great love of the sea and of the Club which he so ably helped to revitalize after the Second World War.

The Trophy will be awarded at the sole discretion of the Flag Officers and Board to a member who has, during the then current year, performed some noteworthy feat which has reflected honor upon the Club.

The recipient of the award is to hold the Trophy for one year, or until notified by the Club secretary that it should be returned to be re-awarded.
