The Hong Kong to Vietnam Race 2013 is a 656 mile biennial downhill fast passage to Nha Trang, on the south eastern coast of Vietnam organised by the RHKYC. Now in its sixth edition this is Asia's longest Category One Offshore Race.

The current race record of 42h 45m 41s is held by Grant Wharington's Skandia Wild Thing, reflecting an approximate average speed of 15.45 knots.

The finish location of Nha Trang is family friendly, and a great location for boats intending to continue on to other seasonal sailing events in  Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Australia.
