"A celebration of Hong Kong’s unique and stunning cruising grounds is long overdue.” (The Authors)

In a pocket-sized space, Hong Kong offers some of the most wonderful cruising grounds imaginable, and you’re never far from anywhere, even if it feels like it. The city is always just around the corner, but easily forgotten. It is truly ‘world-class water’. If you know, and have forgotten, you need Cruising Hong Kong. If you are new here and want to explore, you need Cruising Hong Kong.

"Cruising Hong Kong will fill a gaping hole in any Hong Kong boating enthusiast’s bookshelf. Whilst it is true that this is a visual treat (Guy Nowell is not only a yachting photographer of some renown, but also a keen sailor with an intimate knowledge of Hong Kong's waters), this is much more than a coffee table publication. The team at Asia Yacht Press must be congratulated for producing a work that both inspires and informs.  The book is packed with practical information and as such is a "must have" for anyone remotely interested in boating in Hong Kong." (Roger Eastham, former Marine Manager, Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club).

Guy Nowell, Suzy Rayment and Nic Boyde are proud to present ‘Cruising Hong Kong’, a beautiful volume of photographs and plenty of informative text to remind local cruising sailors that there’s a great deal more to Hong Kong than the familiar few standard weekend destinations. From the Soko Islands in the far southwest to Double Haven away to the northeast, Hong Kong and its 365 islands present a multitude of sightseeing trips, anchorages, and overnight stops. For day-tripping junk charters, very often the first question from the Captain as they go aboard is “where do you want to go?” This book has the answers.

Geology? History? Food? They are all in here, as well as easily accessible information about safety at sea, speed limits, marine regulations, charts, weather, how to charter a yacht (or even buy one!) and where to learn more about boating, or learn to sail.

Cruising Hong Kong is available at the RHKYC Ship Shop, on like or directly from the publisher: Asia Yacht Press
