Friar Trophy

This large, silver-plated trophy, devised as a miniature facsimile of the schooner yacht Andrews, was presented to the Squadron in 1946 by Past Vice Commodore G.R. Harrison who served on the Squadron's Board from 1936-1938.

While originally presented for annual competition in a race outside the confines of Halifax Harbour, the conditions under which this trophy would be awarded were subsequently altered by the club in 2011, allocating it to the best combined result in the biennial Route Halifax - St Pierre Ocean Race (RHSP) and the Marblehead-to-Halifax Ocean Race (MHOR).

In 2016, this was further amended to honour the best combined result in the RHSP and the following MHOR, to be awarded biennially at the MHOR prize giving.
