Goodwin W. Harding Trophy
Named for the brother of William G. Harding of H Class, Stuart Knockabout, and Harding Sails fame, "Goodie" died at a relatively young age.

Henry Ware Memorial Trophy
This trophy was for the third series race in August. It replaced the Bement trophy, which was retired after being won three times by the Chases. The trophy is named for Bill Ware's grandfather, Henry Ware who came to Hospital Cove in 1884 and won the series championship in 1893 in cat boats (before there were H-12s). It will be awarded for the Labor Day three race series.
Walter W. Weld Memorial Trophy

Frederic Wolsey Pratt Memorial Trophy
Named after Mr. Pratt, who was a long-time summer resident of Hospital Cove. This trophy is given to the winner of the Labor Day race.
This is a permanent trophy with keepers which was first awarded in 1936 to the summer series winner of the H Class. It was donated by Mr. And Mrs. Reynolds of Scraggy Neck and has all the names of the winning boats from 1936 through 1993 inscribed on the trophy and the base that has been added. This is the oldest and most prestigious of the Buzzards Trophies.
