The MCA Shield is a recent trophy first presented at the 2005 National Championships to Alan Bennett for 1st Helm over 50, presumably because the 1963 Trophy was missing. It appears to have been originally purchased to be awarded to the winners of race 9 at the National Championship.
In 2019 it was awarded to the youngest combined crew & helm ages to complete all the races.
