Here is the application link: entry forms for the MRA Innovation Award.
The MRA Innovation Award is a mahogany-clad custom blown glass vessel made in France. 
The chrome hardware 
and anchor cap are Belgian, and the nautically-inspired result is a
handsome addition to any display case, bar or yacht. 
The “Yacht Club Vodka” design is
based on the legendary
boats of the Riviera and the look of the famous 1960’s Riva “Aquarama”. 

The vodka itself starts with gluten-free wheat milled in Northeastern France and spring water sourced from the French Alps. It’s distilled five times and filtered through charcoal columns, and the result is a light, crisp tasting, gluten-free vodka with a hint of Elderflower at the finish. It’s a trophy inside and outside worthy of MRA innovators!

The winner(s) will be announced during the Marine Recreation Association’s 50th Annual Educational Conference and Trade Show in partnership with California Association of Harbor Masters and Port Captains, held October 18-20, 2022 at the Hilton Santa Barbara Beachfront Resort in Santa Barbara, CA.
