German automobile brand Audi has been announced as the Title Sponsor of the 2013 Hong Kong to Vietnam Race organised by the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club. The 656 nautical mile Category One offshore race will start in Victoria Harbour on Thursday, October 17, with post-race celebrations planned in Nha Trang, Vietnam on Sunday October 20.

The addition of Audi to this event will give the race a world-class identity to match one of the most prolific race fleets in the history of the event! Competitors include prominent boats and renowned sailors whose accomplishments include honours and awards at some of the greatest sailing events around the world. The Audi Hong Kong to Vietnam Race 2013 is now set to join this world-class stage.

Reinhold Carl, Managing Director, Audi Hong Kong said, 'Audi Hong Kong is honoured and excited to be the lead sponsor of the prestigious 2013 Hong Kong to Vietnam Race. Over the course of the offshore race, we will witness the cutting edge engineering and design of the boats, and the sailors’ incredible passion and tactical expertise to conquer all possible circumstances facing them in their journey. This group of elite racers, combined with the speed, team spirit, progressiveness and determination to overcome challenges in this exciting event, are perfect reflections of Audi’s brand image and values – 'progressive, sophisticated, sporty' – as well as Audi users’ lifestyles.'

'The announcement of Audi as Title Sponsor of our biennial Hong Kong to Vietnam Race is very exciting news for all involved. This race is a fast, down-hill passage to Vietnam with the boats racing under spinnaker virtually all the way. Over several years now the race has been building with more and more boats adding it to their ‘must do’ list. Several of the entries are already en route from Honolulu having competed in the Transpacific Race meaning that this year’s entry list is shaping up as one that will give every boat serious competition and very exciting racing all the way. It is sure to be one of the most exciting offshore yacht races ever in the Asian region!' said Mark Bovaird, General Manager, Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club.
