HKRNVR MEMORIAL VASE 2018 - 10 FEBRUARY

There are three Harbour pursuit races held each year, namely the Lipton Trophy, the Tomes Cup and the HKRNVR (Hong Kong Royal Naval Volunteer Reserves) Memorial Vase Pursuit Race. These three events, together with the annual Around the Island Race held in November, create a series known as the “Top Dog Trophy Series” with the “Top Dog” crowned at the end of the season.

HISTORY OF THE HKRNVR MEMORIAL VASE

The Vase was presented to the Club more than 40 years ago by the local Royal Naval Volunteer Reserves with the proviso that "the course should take participating yachts into waters patrolled by the HKRNVR."

The HKRNVR is now defunct but the trophy continues to serve as a reminder to yachtsmen of when amateur sailors played their part in the security of Hong Kong.

This year's race is a constituent event of the Top Dog Trophy Series.
