HULL DISTANT WATER CHALLENGE SHIELD

 

CHALLENGE SHIELD

As the demise of the Silver Cod Trophy was planned, fairer competitions were devised in the form of the Hull Distant Water Challenge Shield for the Sidewinder vessels, with the exception of the Hammond Innes and the C S Forester, which were fresher stern vessels, so were also included. The Dolphin Bowl Competition was also devised for the freezer trawlers.

Previously the Silver Cod Trophy had been awarded to the vessel with the highest catch value, the Challenge Shield was awarded on a points basis after calculations were made of the vessels catch:

No of kits + Gross Earning divided by registered speed of vessel
