Peter Andreae Race

Peter Andreae Trophy

Our annual Peter Andreae Trophy Race is for under 21s sailing double-handed in Scows. Also known as the Kelly Ship, the trophy consists of a silver model of a Lymington Pram, bearing at its masthead, the Club burgee.

The origin of the trophy is a sad one: "The most lucrative annual prizes for young members of the Club are those of the "Peter Andreae" Competition. This year's (1965) event was saddened by the news of the death of the donor, Herman Andreae, a Life Member of the Club. In memory of his son, Peter, who was lost at sea in a yachting accident before the First World War, he presented a sum of money, the dividends from which were to form the annual prize for a competition amongst members under twenty-one years of age".

Cash prizes will be awarded. The event is run using a round robin league system with a final comprising 1, 2, or 3 final races depending on the time available.
