HISTORY OF THE TOMES CUP

Courtesy of the late Frank Hydes

In the 1960s the late Noel Croucher received a letter from a Mrs Tomes, widow of a member of the Tomes family, late of the old Hong Kong firm of Shewan Tomes & Co., Ltd., (now part of the Hutchison Group).

The letter stated that among her late husband’s effects was an old trophy, the Sugar Refiners Cup, which she thought the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club might like.

This was gratefully accepted and was given for another staggered all-classes pursuit race. In ignorance of history, many members referred to it as the Taikoo Sugar Cup, quite forgetting that Taikoo Sugar was merely the sole survivor of the various earlier sugar refineries, of which Tomes were one.

To keep the record straight, Noel Croucher had the Cup renamed Tomes Cup and it remains to this day. The inscription on the Cup reads "Sugar Refiners Cup won by Naomi April 1st 1880."
