The Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club Autumn Regatta will take place Sept 13-14.

The historic Regatta, which dates back to 1889, will be the first of a number of events "powered by Audi", the official automobile partner of the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club.

The Regatta is open to all Hong Kong’s keelboat sailors. Over 100 competitors will gather in Causeway Bay for one race on Saturday and two back-to-back races on Sunday.

The around-the-cans courses to be sailed are likely to take place in Hong Kong landmarks such as Shau Kei Wan, Tai Koo Shing and Hung Hom and will be selected on the day by Race Officer Simon Boyde, taking into account the prevailing winds and tides.  

The prize giving for the event will take place at RHKYC’s Kellett Island clubhouse at around 1830 on Sunday evening.
