'HKRNVR Pursuit Race 2011'    RHKYC/Koko Mueller    Click Here to view large photo

Organised by the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club, with Skandia as title sponsor, the HKRNVR Memorial Vase is the final of four pursuit races comprising the Top Dog Trophy Series 2011-2012. Over 130 boats have entered the series overall and with just one race to go; the current leader with 14.35 points is Anthony Root on Red Kite II who will be looking defend his hold on first place.

The HKRNVR Memorial Vase was first awarded to Ecstacy in 1951 and was presented to the Club by the local Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve with the proviso that 'the course should take participating yachts into waters patrolled by the HKRNVR.' The HKRNVR is of course now defunct; however the trophy continues to serve as a reminder of a time when amateur sailors played a vital role in the security of Hong Kong.

The passage of time since the event’s inception has seen the course for the race adjusted to take into account Marine Department restrictions on sailing and towing boats through the congested central harbour. In keeping with the Deed of Gift, Race Officer Gareth Williams will select a course which will take the fleet out through the harbour to the eastern approaches and back, his choice influenced by the prevailing wind conditions on the day.

The Top Dog Trophy Series pulls together the results from RHKYC’s quartet of pursuit races, pro-rated to a base entry of 50 boats, in order to identify Hong Kong’s top helm for the season’s series.
