Team “Zephyr” wins in Hong Kong!
As main sponsor, we can look back on a wonderful few days of exiting racing in cooperation with the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club and the Hong Kong Dragon Association. The 2018/2019 Hong Kong Open Dragon Championship was hosted over the course of three days at Middle Island, including a team from Central Oceans sailing “Dragonfly”.
The weekend allowed for some excellent sailing, including a day of “survival sailing” in gusts of over 30 knots! The winning boat was local team, HKG 55 “Zephyr” helmed by Tam Nguyen. Finishing 2nd was HKG 58 “Elfje” helmed by Andreas Brechbuhl. The final spot on the podium was for the Central Oceans team HKG 59 “Dragonfly”, helmed by Bram van Olphen, whom unpacked the boat just two days before the competition after we shipped it in from Holland.
We want to thank all involved in making this yet another successful event (including the wonderful coverage of the event by Oliver Merz)! For those who want to view a small recap, please click the below link to the video of the event:
