Sailonline is delighted to announce that it will be partnering with Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club, one of the oldest sporting clubs in Hong Kong, for the running of the 2013 Audi Hong Kong to Vietnam Race which starts in Hong Kong on 17 October - Sailonline's virtual race is currently planned to open for practice over the weekend of 12/13 October.

The 2013 edition will see a seventeen-strong fleet chasing the current race record of 42h 45m 41s, which was set in 2004 by Grant Wharington’s Skandia. The real course records have been provided, and ‘real’ racers may start from up by the Clubhouse of RHKYC (Kellett Island, inside Hong Kong harbour) and head past Shek O Rock, or they can start where we are starting (south of Lamma). The Kellett Island + Shek O option would be nigh on impossible for folks to DC, hence our Lamma choice.

All waypoints provided. As ever, we have created a splendid race. To sneak preview it you will need to log in using these credentials:
