In February, 2001, the Landfall Sailing Club was founded in Eastern Massachusetts to encourage and promote the sport of sailing
and seamanship for people over 35. The club seeks to bring together boat owners who need crew and people who know how and
like to sail, but don’t have boats. The emphasis is on enjoying the sport. Being active in the club offers the opportunity to increase
sailing skills and an awareness of the marine environment.

Peter Williams Memorial Bowl


Peter Williams, a former member of the Landfall Sailing Club has been memorialized with this award.  Peter was a member for many years who was known for his exceptional sailing skills, nautical knowledge and patience. He sailed throughout the northeast with many members of the club.  We present this award to the captain who exemplifies these traits which were consistently demonstrated by Peter over the years and we remember him each time this award is presented to one of our members.


Bowl was donated by Barbara Garran Howerton in memory of Peter Williams.

Criteria to be exemplified by Bowl recipients:
