Competitive Sailing was held in Wanganui around the late 1800's under the name of the Wanganui Sailing Club. One of the oldest trophies held at Sailing Wanganui is the Studholme Cup and records the name of E M Silk as winning, in an 18' class called "Dotterell", a little after the turn of the century.
