IP Global Autumn Regatta is on 28th and 29th September 2013

Sponsored by IP Global and organised by Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club, the first major event of a packed 2013-2014 calendar is scheduled to take place in Hong Kong’s iconic Victoria Harbour over the weekend of 28 and 29 September.

Open to all Hong Kong’s keelboat sailors, the regatta will feature over 100 boats hailing from eight one-design classes and the ‘Big Boats’. 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 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 Sofia Mascia, taking into account the prevailing winds and tides.

The prizegiving for the event will take place at RHKYC’s Kellett Island clubhouse at around 1830hrs on Sunday evening, after racing has finished.
