by Lindsay Lyons, RHKYC media on 19 Oct 2013
The TP52 Lucky which travelled all the way from America to take part in the Audi Hong Kong to Vietnam Race has ensured she leaves with at least one piece of silverware, having won IRC Racing 0 Division on IRC handicap, pushing fellow TP52, OneSails Racing (which finished 1h 12m behind Bryon Ehrhart’s boat) into second place on corrected time.

FreeFire finished just under an hour behind Ray Roberts and team, however with a much higher IRC rating had had to settle for third place in Racer 0.
This completes the finishes for IRC Racer 0 and HKPN, with the next boat due to arrive being Island Fling from IRC Racer one Division, due in just after midnight. Signal 8 and kukuKERchu are currently projected to arrive around 15 minutes apart, followed by Red Kite II around four hours later.
