The Velocity Coastal Rowing masters team entered their second competitive race on Saturday 11th July. The competition was part of the Victoria Rowing Club 2020 Duff & Phelps VRC Race Series (VRC7). Velocity competed in the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club (RHKYC) quadruple scull coastal rowing boats over an eight-kilometer coastal water course that starts and ends in Deep Water Bay.

The Velocity team significantly improved on their previous time by 5 minutes, completing their race at 47 minutes and 49 seconds. Unfortunately, they were beaten once again into second place by Ferrari 20 with an impressive time of 47 minutes and 4 seconds. Cally from Ferrari 20 quad is pictured presenting Velocity with their second-place prize.

Two new RHKYC quad rowing teams entered the race – Galaxy Five and Kronos. Both achieved very respectable times and will no doubt look to improve in the next race.

Ferrari 20 next time beware!

Special thanks go to Mr. Fang Zhao and his wife Ms. Xiang Gu for the special ‘champagne’ prizes ? ?.
