*In 1961 the committee decided that the newly presented Walter Hooper Cup be awarded for second position and the Charlton Cup
should be awarded for third position.

This decision was reversed the following year, the Charlton Cup reverting to 2nd place and the Walter Hooper to 3rd place.

1961    2nd position was Clipper of the Clouds by Lime Kiln C.C., Bridgwater. 3rd position was Union Pacific by Gremlins C.C., Bridgwater.
