2017 Valmadre Series

Saturday, 24 June 2017 - Saturday, 5 August 2017

When FSC was established in 1908, the Valmadre Cup was the 2nd race in the season. The trophy was donated by a founding member, Mr A.G. (Paddy) Valmadre. The race discontinued with the WW1, and the trophy ‘disappeared’.

Out of the blue, in 1985, some 70 years later, the original Valmadre trophy re-appeared with a person from Queensland, and FSC paid $20 to get it back! In 1987 the Fremantle Sailing Club decided to introduce an Offshore Winter Series and named it the Valmadre Series, and using the original trophy from 1908.

This series originally consisted of three races, the Arlene, Ensign and the Mayflower. These names were from the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place getters in the original race in 1908. Later, in 2007 an additional 4th race, the Voladora was introduced, named after the last boat in the original 1908 race.
