'Skandia HKRNVR Memorial Vase 2012 - in hot pursuit - Ambush chases down a Flying 15'    Guy Nowell/RHKYC    Click Here to view large photo

In spite of unseasonally chilly weather in Hong Kong, 62 boats lined up to contest the Skandia HKRNVR Memorial Vase, which commemorates the volunteer sailors who patrolled Hong Kong’s waters in days gone by. Race Officer Gareth Williams took a squint at conditions before the race, and given a light and shifty breeze, opted for Course 1, sending the fleet out through Lei Yue Mun gap and around TCS 4 before returning to Victoria Harbour for a shortened course finish at Dock Buoy.

By the turning mark, the Flying Fifteen fleet had overtaken Pandora and Ruffian classes to take a lead which they successfully defended until the finish at 1624hrs, where they took a 1,2,3. The Big Boats were in hot pursuit the whole way, with Ambush following them across the line only a minute off the podium.

The Skandia HKRNVR Memorial Vase was the final pursuit race in the 2011-2012 Top Dog Trophy Series, and after a protest over the location of the finish line, the final results showed this year’s Top Dog, and recipient of a fabulous 7-day bareboat charter presented by SunSail, to be the Mills 41 Ambush, co-owned by Joachim Isler and Drew Taylor, with Howard Williams on Flying Fifteen Tchaikoffsky in second, and Nick Burns on Etchells Gunga Din in third place overall. A bad day at the office saw ingoing leader Red Kite II pushed back to fifth place behind Etchells Swedish Blue.

A packed prizegiving on RHKYC Main Lawn saw the winners presented with jade coin jewellery by Official Luxury Jeweller SENZANOME, while those assembled enjoyed the hospitality of Veuve Cliquot champagne. The Club also thanked their other partners, Art Futures Group, PRESTIGE Magazine and Luxury Insider.com for their support.
