Emailor +852 9223 3767

Hi all, I just love being out in the water – from dinghy sailing (attained HKSF Level 1 and 2) and some brief hours on a larger keelboat, I find the interconnecting disciplines of physics and fluid dynamics, tactical and intellectual teamwork skills demand for crew such immersive and challenging experience that I would really love to continue to learn and meet more like-minded people in this friendly community!

I’m an introductory scheme member, an RIBA architect by profession as my day job but I can be available on occasional weekdays and most weekends. I am eager to join any keelboat for both leisure cruising or even racing (only if you consider I can be fit for that!) 


Most weekends and occasional weekdays

Carl Zhao

Mostly dinghy sailing as a kid growing up in North America, and I have completed HKSF Levels 1&2 here in Hong Kong. I am looking to learn more about sailing keelboats, and would love to join a friendly boat for cruising or racing. Happy to do any job on the boat; I’ve been told I’m decent human ballast. 172cm tall and 68kg, Chinese-Canadian, English and Mandarin speaker. I am currently an Introductory Member.

I am a postgraduate student from the US studying at HKU. During my undergraduate program I was a member of my school’s sailing team racing in the NWICSA district for Western Washington University. My primary racing background is with FJ and 420 dinghy boats. I also have sailed Lasers, Alphas, Dyer Dhows, JY15s, a J22, Solings, J70s, and a Catalina 34. I also have limited experience on catamarans having sailed a prindle and hobi cat. Additionally, I know the basics of windsurfing and am learning more every time I get to go.  

I am a certified level 1 sailing instructor with US sailing and have taught sailing for the past 4 years.

My reason for reaching out is I am hoping to get involved with the racing community here in Hong Kong. I brought all my sailing gear and my PFD. I’m wondering if it would be possible to join a weekly racing series. I am eager to get on the water!  I’m 191 cm tall and weigh 73kg so I’m a good crew for pit but I don’t often crew in that position.


W eekends and on weeknights

Hi! This is Francesco. 22yo from Italy. I grew  up sailing and doing all sorts of water sports. Water polo player. But before that, I'm a team player. 183 cm and athletic. Just moved to HK for work.

I raced catamarans and dinghies from 10 to 16 yo. From 17 until now, I've been working both as a sailing instructor on dinghies and as a skipper on big boats in Sardinia.

I'd love to join a crew here and gain some racing experience (and have a lot of fun along the way!)  .
