Awarded to the lowest point scoring competitor from Australia, South East Asia and New Zealand, when the World Championships are conducted in either Australia, South East Asia or New Zealand.
The Trophy was donated by W.D. and H.O. Wills New Zealand Limited for competition between Moth class yachts of the Pacific region. The Commodore Challenge Trophy or Pan-Pacific Trophy is awarded to the lowest pointscoring Moth from Japan, New Zealand or Australia when the World Championships are held at one of those venues.
The Trophy has a square wooden base with rectangular plaques on vertical sides. A carved wooden skiff moth hull sits atop a pedestal (can be screwed off). The moth has a solid silver sail with a hole depicting the moth symbol.
