BUYASSOCIATION HKRNVR MEMORIAL VASE

A harbour pursuit race and a constituent event of the Top Dog Trophy Series.

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.
