Lipton Trophy - Past Events


ONE GLOBAL LIPTON TROPHY
26 NOVEMBER 2022

The Lipton Trophy is a pursuit race, which is different to normal yacht racing in that competitors are given staggered start times under RHKATI handicap, ie. the slowest boats start first and then the faster boats set off in pursuit, with the time delay between classes of boats being determined from their handicaps. If all boats are sailed equally well, they should (in theory) all finish at the same time.

The race is held in the eastern area of Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbour, taking in Shau Kei Wan, Tai Koo Shing, Kowloon Bay and Hung Hom. The race attracts around 60 competitors from Hong Kong’s one-design fleets and Big Boat classes.

There are three Harbour pursuit races held each year, namely the Lipton Trophy, the HKRNVR (Hong Kong Royal Naval Volunteer Reserves) Memorial Vase Pursuit Race and the Tomes Cup. 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.
