Royal Western Yacht Club (RWYC)

Drake Trophy – Photograph (PWDRO 116/20); 1945

The figure of Drake, with bowling ball in hand, stands below a carving of a galleon, emphasising the sailing connection, and next to slots for the names of winners of the Trophy for each year between 1945 and 1958. At the bottom an inscription states that it was a replacement for the Shanghai Shield destroyed by enemy action in 1941. An enquiry to the RWYC on the whereabouts of the Trophy met with no response.
