And a trophy

The 2nd Viscount Goschen's tenure as Governor of Madras was quite a mixed bag, but there is not much that I have been able to find about his administrative abilities. He probably did quite well, because his name pops up at all kinds of places. If it was the public library yesterday, it is this trophy today.

Called the Goschen Cup, it was presented to the Madras Sailing Club in 1928. You can see it today if you are nice to folks at the Royal Madras Yacht Club (which is what the Madras Sailing Club has morphed into). It is not normally on display - it was out because of the Madras Day celebrations in August. 

Will request someone from the RMYC to give us more information on what this Cup is for.

Can I request you to change your feed from 'content summary' to 'full' please? Will save time for the reader especially when reading from a phone.

@Raj: Had to do it because there is someone using content without my permission. Will re-set in a couple of days. Sorry!

@Raj: Have reset it back to 'full' - I hope! Could you confirm that, please?
