The Captain’s Prizewinners, 2000 to 2021Some Interesting Facts

The list of the winners has been compiled with lots of assistance from various members and especially from John Coffey.  Here are some interesting facts about the list before we publish it in the near future.

  • One member, in the space of the 22 years, has won the Captain’s Prize THREE times and, in particular, two years in a row.  This has been a marvellous and possibly unprecedented achievement.
  • A father and son winners appear in the list.
  • A pair of brothers appear in the list.
  • A pair of cousins appear in the list.
  • Two captains were also winners of Captain’s Prizes (not their own, obviously).
  • One captain had the dubious pleasure of presenting two separate Captain’s Prizes.

So, that’s it, you can have your own guesses as to whom each fact refers.  Also, on a sadder note, two of the Captains and one of the Winners have passed away.

Referring to No-one in particular, one person suggested that we should also cover the 90s, probably because he won one in that decade.  That is for another day.
