The Audi Hong Kong to Vietnam Race 2015 is organised by the RHKYC and run under the RHKYC Offshore Prescriptions. It is a 656 mile biennial (‘downhill’) fast passage to Nha Trang, on the south-eastern coast of Vietnam. 2015 will mark the seventh edition of the Race which is the longest Category One offshore race in Asia. The Race was first run in 1996 and then regularly since 2004. The current race record of 42h 41m 20s is held by Syd Fischer’s “Ragamuffin 90” at an approximate average speed of 15.4 knots. A popular tourist destination in its own right, Nha Trang also offers a great revictualling point for boats intending to continue on to other seasonal sailing events in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Australia.
