The Pre-Worlds will kick off on December 27 this year followed shortly after by the Zhik 29er Worlds commencing on January 2 2018. Hong Kong experiences some of its best sailing conditions in January with great breeze and mild winter temperatures. The racing will be based out of Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club’s Middle Island facility.
Hong Kong has hosted many prestigious international events including: the Rolex China Sea Race, 2015 Etchells Worlds, 2013 Flying 15 Worlds and the annual Hong Kong Race Week – Hong Kong’s largest international regatta, which boasted 253 entries from 12 countries in 2017.
The 2017-2018 Hong Kong sailing season promises to be the biggest yet with Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club hosting the 2017 Optimist Asian & Oceanian Championship, the biennial Volvo Hong Kong to Vietnam Race, the Zhik 29er Worlds, a stopover for the Volvo Ocean Race, Hong Kong Race Week and the 29th edition of Rolex China Sea Race, to name a few.
