I don't know who is receiving the prize or the toddler in the red hat.

Comments:
Person receiving prize could be Dick Percival. He came to Orkney for a few seasons and raced an Albacore, winning a lot of races. Dan Grieve bought Mizpah and Mr Percival wasn't seen back in Orkney. Nothing like a bit of healthy competition!
