PRLog - Feb. 11, 2014 - CAUSEWAY BAY, Hong Kong -- Scheduled slightly later in the season than normal due to the fall of Lunar New Year and in slightly warmer weather, the Tomes Cup pursuit race, organised by Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club and presented by eyewear specialist zerorh+, forms a constituent part of the Club’s annual Top Dog Trophy Series.

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 in the course of the race which is expected to attract between 60 and 70 competitors from the one-design fleets and Big Boat classes.

The slowest boats will start first with the higher rated boats spending the afternoon playing ‘catch up’ and gradually working their way up through the fleet. The finish line will be set at the mark which will finish the first boat as close to the target time of 1630hrs as possible.

The first boat to cross the line will be declared the winner and will lift the Tomes Cup, one of the Club’s oldest pieces of silverware which is inscribed with "Sugar Refiners Cup won by Naomi April 1st 1880" and which was gifted to RHKYC by the Tomes family in the 1960’s.

The current zerorh+ Top Dog Trophy standings showing a hair’s breadth of difference amongst the top three boats, namely 3 x 11 (Suzanne Downes – 6.66pts), Tchaikoffsky (Howard Williams – 7.23pts) and Wanchai Belle (Jamie McWiilliam – 8.78pts). The series will include the results for Lipton Trophy and Around The Island Race, together with Tomes Cup and the HKRNVR Memorial Vase, scheduled for 3 May 2014.
