postponement of race

Good morning everyone,

Following lengthy overnight discussions re the weather at Holyhead, the organisers of the Lyver Trophy race have reluctantly decided to postpone the race to a later date – if possible.

The Committee is aware that some competitors may have intended to use the Lyver Trophy as a qualifier for the Fastnet Race. If anyone is in that position, please could they contact me as that might affect a proposed new date.

With sincere apologies and kind regards to all.

Lyver Trophy committee

rescheduling of race

The Lyver Committee intend to reschedule the race on the 21st of July, start time at 20:00 BST. The formal notifcation is as follows:-


Due to an exceptional weather forecast for the two days prior to the race, preventing boats form making the delivery to Holyhead, the organising committee of the Lyver Race have decided to postpone the race until Friday 21st July at 20.00.

Several other factors have arisen that also influenced the decision to postpone. The recent difficult ISORA Race, where over half the fleet retired, had resulted in many of the boats who had entered the Lyver, withdrawing. It had been expected that 38 boats would have taken part in the race but the list of starters had dwindled to 22 and that number was expected to significantly reduce again due to the delivery difficulties.

For participants using the Race to qualify for the Fastnet Race, the new date will allow those boats to still qualify for the Fastnet Race and still allow adequate time to make their passage to Cowes...."
