TEN 470 TEAMS AT HONG KONG RACE WEEK16 Feb 2015
Ten 470 teams are contesting the four-day annual Hong Kong Race Week. As well as racing for the senior classes, event 2 of the ASAF Youth Sailing Cup has brought the junior fleets together.
A real mixed bag of weather so far, with a tough 20 knot breeze forcing some teams off the race course on Saturday, to light winds on Sunday and no wind today.
Five races down and it is a tiebreak for first and second with Cheung Ka Ho/Tse Siu Kit and Kwan Wing Ho /Lam Wing Chun on an equal 8 points each. Three points behind in third are Tse Sui Lun/Chik Ho Yin.
The five race wins so far have been claimed by four different teams, and whilst the top of the leaderboard is quite well-established, the potential of other teams is clear. Just one more day of racing on Tuesday 17 February to decide the scoreboard.
