Trophies – The Corke Cup


This cup is a replica of a trophy won by Captain Dixon when racing in a Keil Regatta. George Corke was a friend and paid hand of Captain Dixon who was no mean helmsman, and they did many races in Cowes, cross channel etc. Captain Dixon moved down to Mylor and lived in Admiralty Cottage, where George and his wife Gladys looked after him in later years.    On Capt Dixon’s death, George lived in Admiralty cottage and purchased the Dockyard, building it up into a then modest yacht harbour.

He was one of the founder members of the yacht club, with Beacus Penrose, Lou Doble and Sam Isaacs, using the small building on the end of the quay as a clubhouse.  He owned many boats, including Magpie, Joliette, the sunbeam Ivy, and Evelyn.

In  1980 when George died, his son Kenny gave the trophy to the Yacht club to be awarded to the first wooden boat in Class B (large boats)  on regatta day.
