The Group believes that competitive sailing reflects our core values and as such is the main sponsor of the Sun Hung Kai Scallywag race team, Hong Kong’s professional off-shore sailing team. We believe the team’s spirit of excellence and endurance is a source of inspiration for all our employees, business partners and the community at large.
The team competed on behalf of Hong Kong in the renowned Volvo Ocean Race 17-18, one of the toughest sailing challenges in the world. The team spent more than eight months sailing over 45,000 nautical miles across four oceans.
The origin of the team is Scallywag, a 100-foot super maxi race yacht sponsored by the Company. Just as Sun Hung Kai & Co today has transformed itself into an all-weather investment partner, the yacht has undergone a renewal under the Company’s sponsorship. The spirit of the vessel and its crew echo the Company’s own – Endure. Adapt. Excel.Follow the team on:
