The Robert Cartwright Memorial Trophy

This stunning perpetual trophy is be awarded as part of the National Windsurfing Championships, it is in memory of Rob Cartwright, a young windsurfer who always had fun on the water and did so with an abundance of passion, enthusiasm, and commitment to the sport of windsurfing, these are the core values this trophy celebrates.
Nominations can be put forward by anyone, sailors, parents, coaches and volunteers. You can nominate any windsurfer who, in your opinion, demonstrates the core values that the trophy represents.
Rob Cartwright (aged 12) loved windsurfing and could always be seen with a smile on his face, going as fast as he possibly could and 'normally' in the right direction!
Rob was a member of the RYA West Zone Windsurfing Squad whilst his older sister Sarah, also a talented sailor, had been a member of the RYA National Youth Squad. “Rob was a fantastic squad member, friends with all the other sailors in the squad and was regarded as a joy to coach”, as his RYA Coach at the time said. “Whilst not always winning every competition, he would always enjoy himself and never gave-up, finishing virtually every race he entered”.
The family attended an RYA Zone Windsurfing training weekend, and it was on the way home on the Saturday that Robert was tragically killed, along with his father Phil, when their car was involved in a head-on collision. Rob’s mother Pat was seriously injured and has made a remarkable recovery. Sarah, who was also injured, has continued to be involved in the sport of windsurfing, coaching and volunteering.
It is a great honour each year, to have Pat and Sarah in attendance at the Championships, to present the trophy in person to an inspiring individual. Past winners of the Rob Cartwright Trophy include Richard Hamilton, Paul Sibley, Izzy Hamilton, Max Bushell, Emily Hall, Rob York and Matt Barton and Matt and Josh Carey, Zed Spencer Milnes, Erin and Islay Watson, James Faley, Catrin Williams, Oscar Shaw and Charlie Bennett.
