RHKYC Zung Fu Sunset Series To Take Place At Victoria Harbour
Published: Thursday, 16 June 2016
The 2016 Sunset Series - organised by Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club (RHKYC) - will feature Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbour in front of the Club’s Kellett Island Clubhouse on June 17.
This year’s Sunset Series is powered by Zung Fu Company Limited, the exclusive retailer of Mercedes-Benz in Hong Kong and Macau. The Club also welcomes back Peroni Beer and Bændit Eyewear as sponsors, who return after a successful 2015 series.
The emphasis of the series is on fun racing and the event is open to all classes of one-design keelboats, together with the ‘Big Boats’. Boats are given an initial handicap rating, which is adjusted for every race in which they participate.
Races are scheduled every Friday (except July 1) at 17:45, up to and including August 26.

Entry is by ‘sign-on’ for each race of the series and prizes will be awarded for the first four places in each race. The winner of the overall series will be awarded the Sunset Series Cup and the boat with most first places in the series will be awarded the Steward Trophy.
Along with the new title sponsor, Zung Fu, the Club also welcomes new sponsors for the 2016 edition of the summer racing series: Tod’s, Mazu Swimwear, AiA, Aperol Spritz and Roll'eat.
The Club will hold an end of series party Aug 26 to give thanks to its sponsers.
