Trophies – Silver Oyster Race


Inscriptionbeneathplinth

For Large (Licensed B Class) Working Boats

The Silver Oyster Trophies were cast from local shells by the then Commodore, Peter Grigg, on behalf of the club. These are raced for on 5 November each year by licensed Working Boats to commemorate the High Court victory of local Oystermen over Truro Corporation on November 5th 1902.

In 1978, members of the Sailing Committee proposed that we should hold a race for these boats. The first race was held on a Sunday under ideal conditions and with 21 entries. OOD was Brian Reynolds.
