PORT TOWNSEND — The Key City Trophy has returned home after more than a century.
Stig Osterberg triumphantly carried the 24-inch tall sterling silver cup back to Port Townsend on Saturday after winning it for a successful season of yacht racing.
Osterberg, a periodontist, hopes to display the cup over the next year at the Jefferson County Historical Society Museum and, in September, at the annual Wooden Boat Festival.
He will also showcase it at his two dental offices in Port Angeles and Port Townsend.
No Port Townsend boat has ever won the Key City Trophy, despite its origin here.
Indeed, in recent years it’s hardly left a glass trophy case in Vancouver, B.C.
The cup was commissioned in 1900 by the City Council when Port Townsend was chosen for an international yacht race.The rest of this story appears in today’s Peninsula Daily News. Click on “Subscribe” to get the PDN delivered to your home or office.
