Lyver Trophy
Lyver Trophy

The Lyver Trophy Race was first introduced as a bi-annual race by Gordon Dewar from Liverpool Yacht Club, as a joint initiative with the Royal Dee Yacht Club. The aim is to provide a R.O.R.C. Fastnet qualifying race for boats based in ports around the North West, including Liverpool, Blackpool, Isle of Man, Fleetwood, Pwllheli, Holyhead and the Irish ports.

The first race in 1997 started in Liverpool and ended in Pwllheli, since then the start of the race has moved to Holyhead, in order to maintain the growing reputation of the event and to attract yachts from Ireland and South Wales.

The race is independently organised, managed and funded jointly by members of LYC and Royal Dee Yacht Club forming a committee every two years for the purpose of providing a testing course, and a qualifying race for the world famous Fastnet race.

The race is open to all handicapped yachts and all issues regarding the running of such an event are strictly observed.

The overall winner of the race receives a magnificent Waterford Glass Trophy with mementoes presented to other class winners; sometimes as many as 3 or 4 classes
