Without the support of those below this website about the restoration of 'PHYLLIS', would not have become this interesting story about the Royal Mersey Yacht Club's Restricted Class yachts from the early 1900's.

It's with my sincere and grateful thanks to the following owners, crew, maritime historians, friends and acquaintances who have gladly shared some history, their photographs and their insights to help document some of the history of the Royal Mersey Restricted Class Yachts.
