Will be interesting to see if they can really get her going in the Rolex China Sea race and during the next few months before bringing her down for the 2012 Rolex Sydney Hobart Race, but at last it seems Frank Pong will have some serious racing competition, having owned the big boat end of town across Asia for the last decade.
