Top Dog Trophy Series - Lipton Trophy overall

'Lipton Trophy 2011'    RHKYC    Click Here to view large photo

The Top Dog Trophy Series, organised by Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club, incorporates the Lipton Trophy on Saturday 19th November 2011, the Around The Island Race on Sunday 20th November 2011, the Tomes Cup on Saturday 14th January 2012 and the HKRNVR Pursuit Race on Saturday 10th March 2012.

54 boats signed on for Lipton Trophy, the first pursuit race of the Top Dog Trophy Series, designed to find Hong Kong’s most successful helm over the course of the season. Race Officer Brenda Davies scoured the Victoria Harbour early to find some breeze, but with nothing on offer at the Eastern marks, she was forced to use the seven knot northerly and a Hung Hom start to send the fleet off on course 4.

Although there were some ‘quiet’ patches, the breeze finally started to build at around 1500hrs, and the faster boats with the later starts started edging their way though the fleet.

It was quite some time before the Big Boats were able to pick off plucky Pandora, Solstice, however at the target finish time, it was Big Boat Ambush (Isler / Taylor) which took the gun in around 10 knots, followed by Tristan Stewart’s Big Boat Wicked, and Steve Bourne’s Magic 25, Merlin.

A raft of boats followed them in, and at a packed Prizegiving, the Lipton Trophy was awarded to Joachim Isler and Drew Taylor.
