The Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club will launch the 2012-2013 sailing season with its Autumn Regatta over the weekend of Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 September 2012. This two-day, three-race regatta will feature over 100 boats in ten different classes of racing and is one of the oldest regattas in the region, with a history dating back to 1889.
The iconic Victoria Harbour will be the backdrop for this major event, which will also include a full schedule of social events with the sponsors and competitors.
Canaletto, a luxury residence in London, UK and the ‘Official Luxury Property Development Partner’ and SHK Private, ‘Official Private Wealth Management Partner’ will host an exclusive dinner event on Wednesday 5 September for invited guests and media. SHK Private will also host a cocktail reception for its clients on Sunday 9 September prior to the Official Prize Presentation celebrations. McLaren, the ‘Official Luxury Automobile’ will display the new MP4-12C car and offer a test drive ‘experience’ at the Club over the regatta weekend.
Other supporting partners include Small Luxury Hotels of the World, Laurent Perrier Champagne, BACARDI and Carlsberg.
'The Autumn Regatta is the perfect start to the new sailing season and this year is sure to be as exciting as all in the past! The supporting cast of sponsors, including Canaletto, SHK Private and McLaren, and the many prizes on offer will be an extra incentive to all of the competitors during the two days of racing. The schedule of social events is also a welcome addition to this historic event, which will set the scene for an exciting year of sailing in Hong Kong!' commented Russ Parker, RHKYC Rear Commodore (Sailing).
