Commodore Dierk Thomsen outlined the new ISCYRA Perpetual Trophy donated by Paul Elvstrom and his family at the Opening Ceremonies of the 2017 Star World Championship in Troense, Denmark. The Elvstrom Trophy will be awarded to the team with the best race result inclusive of all races at the end of the series. Paul Elvstrom won this trophy in 1957 as the 2nd place crew for Debarge at the Havana Worlds. In the summer of 2016, he told his family of his intentions, and his daughter Trine was at the Opening Ceremony to present the silver loving cup in his memory.
