HONG KONG TO HAINAN RACE 2020 - TBC

The Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club cordially invites entries from yachts to the 14th edition of the Hong Kong to Hainan Race. This biennial Offshore Category 1 race is a classic 390nm downwind passage to Sanya, on the island of Hainan in southern China.

The current race record of 23h 31m 52s was set in the 2016 edition of the race by Seng Huang Lee's Scallywag. Sanya is a great finish location for boats intending to continue on to other sailing events around the Asia-Pacific region.

Boats competing in both the Hong Kong to Hainan Race and China Coast Regatta will be eligible for the overall China Coast Race Week prizes within their division.

The Hong Kong to Hainan Race is organised and conducted by the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club (RHKYC) with co-operation with the Bureau of Culture, Broadcast & TV, Publication and Sports of the Sanya Municipal Government with the finish hosted by Serenity Marina in Sanya, Hainan.

For further information or to express interest, please contact RHKYC Sailing Manager, Ailsa Angus by e-mail or call +852 2239 0395
