This trophy was named in honour of Barrie Payne as he was the person who brought the first FF to GRYC. His yacht 2348 named Ffinale was displayed at a GRYC AGM in the early 2000’s when the then Commodore Simon Thiele asked the members present to vote on the club buying 4 FF’s as club boats for members to hire and race. The vote was carried, sponsorship obtained, and a group of volunteers set off and bought 4 classics, restored them, and they were raced by club members for years. FF numbers grew in SA and the first state championship was held in 2004 with  boats competing.
