HKRNVR Race 2012 Sets Sail

Hkrnvr Memorial Vase 2

The Hong Kong Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve (HKRNVR) Memorial Vase harks back to more than 40 years ago, when it was presented to the Hong Kong Royal Yacht club, stipulating that "the course should take participating yachts into waters patrolled by the HKRNVR".

While the HKRNVR is now defunct, the annual HKRNVR race still serves as a reminder of the time when amateur sailors played their part in the security of Hong Kong. A constituent event of the Top Dog Trophy series, HKRNVR Race 2012 is slated to take place on March 10. 

Taking into account governmental restrictions on sailing through the congested central harbour area, and in line with the spirit of the HKRNVR Memorial Vase, the yachts will sail out of Victoria Harbour into the eastern - as opposed to the western - approaches this year.
