Big Boats


The Big Boat Class is the largest class at the RHKYC consisting of a vast collection of over 250 boats located in Shelter Cove, Kellett Island, Middle Island and Aberdeen. The class ranges from 25m+ racing yachts to small cruisers and everything in between

Currently the racing is held with two different Rating Systems:

IRC (International Rating) – This is one of the most popular International single number handicap systems.  All the racing will have one or more IRC classes to allow vessels of similar ratings to race together – this system is used for the Racers and Cruiser-Racers at the RHKYC.   

PHS (Performance Handicap System) – A new system to HK, this is a well proven system from Australia which allows a yacht handicap to be refined over time as the vessel undertakes more racing within the PHS classes.  This system is used for the Cruisers who undertake races at the RHKYC.

As the committee represents the most diverse collection of yachts and sailing preferences at the RHKYC, our goals are the following:
- Improve participation in existing regattas and events;
- Increase the number of interested and available sailors;
- Improve regatta/event content and social aspect;
- Improve Inter-club co-ordination

Hong Kong territory consists of 640 square kilometres of sea and over 260 mostly uninhabited islands with some of the most beautiful coastline in Southern China. The Big Boat fleet cruises and races in all corners of Hong Kong including Sai Kung, Southern Hong Kong Island and Hong Kong harbour. Big Boats also participate in in-shore regattas to Macau and Shenzhen, in addition to off-shore regattas to Philippines, Hainan Island, and Vietnam.

Each Big Boat is similar but unique in its layout, rigging and personality. If you are new to sailing and are interested in racing or cruising or a little of both, the Big Boat community is open and welcoming.
