Sportsboats are a popular fleet in Hong Kong, with their large sail plans and light weight hulls making them a perfect boat to sail in all the varying conditions experienced in Hong Kong.

A mixed fleet, consisting of a range of designs including VXOne, GP26s , Magic 25s, Longtzes, J/70s amongst others, is based at Shelter Cove. The majority of racing is enjoyed in the beautiful surroundings on Port Shelter in Sai Kung, as well as Hong Kong Harbour. The fleet enjoys a mixture of racing ‘around the cans’ and island courses that take the fleet around some of Hong Kong’s stunning scenery.

The sports boats conduct on-the-water training days to develop the talent in the fleet. Additionally the fleet offers their services to local charities, ensuring people from all backgrounds have the chance to enjoy these fun, fast boats. The race calendar is packed all year around giving sailors the option to race almost every weekend, whilst the association also enjoys a great social scene.

The Sportsboats race under the SMS rule, ensuring boats of different designs can race fairly against each other.
