The Iron Skillet Regatta was established on the questionable premise that a winning skipper can also be a winning chef. Each year, the winning skippers are given iron skillet trophies, as it has been since the regatta's inception. In the original iteration of the regatta, the overall winner's trophy was to be used to prepare a meal the following year for all regatta participants. While the cooking results were not always up to founding-member Betty Caldwell's culinary excellence, the winners of yore spared little effort in making up for lack of experience with quantity. In more recent years, this tradition was dropped due to the time required to prepare such a meal after a day on the water. The new tradition is to have the winning skippers provide the snacks and drinks for the participants' after party at the following year's regatta. The Iron Skillet is a PHRF cruising fleet regatta, with 4 fleets: Heavy A, Heavy B, Light, and C fleet (main and jib only).
