Team AkzoNobel win In-Port Race Hong Kong

 
Team AkzoNobel took the win in the HGC In-Port Race Hong Kong on a challenging afternoon on the waters off Hong Kong.

The wind was 7 to 10 knots, but very shifty and puffy and with a tidal current running on the race course, it was a difficult day for the tacticians.

Dongfeng Race Team was in second place, with Team Brunel third.

A fourth place finish by the previous series leader MAPFRE meant Dongfeng vaults to the top of the table.

Hometown heroes Sun Hung Kai/Scallywag battled to a fifth place finish over Turn the Tide on Plastic.

The Hong Kong In-Port series continues on Sunday with the Around Hong Kong Island Race.
