The Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club is proud to announce the inaugural Taiwan Strait Race, a 350nm Category One Offshore Race across the South China Sea from Hong Kong to Kaohsiung, Taiwan. The race will start on Saturday 21 May 2011.

In 2008, the Club began to explore new, nearby venues for offshore racing. Taiwan Strait Race Chairman, Andy Lam, recalls '…to the north, the Club already had a race to Xiamen, west to Macau and St. John and south to the Philippines, Hainan and Vietnam. We therefore thought that we should do something to the east and so it was agreed that we would race to Taiwan.'

Following a meeting in Kaohsiung with representatives from the Chinese Taipei Sailing Association and Kaohsiung city officials, a Hong Kong to Kaohsiung rally was held in 2009 and again in 2010.

'Following the successful rallies, RHKYC decided to run an official offshore race to Kaohsiung. We are all delighted, and I hope that the Taiwan Strait Race grows from this inaugural event into an annual or biennial fixture on the Club sailing calendar' adds Lam.

The offshore race is followed by the Dapeng Bay International Regatta which is organised by the Chinese Taipei Sailing Association – a standalone three-day event consisting of a coastal race from Kaohsiung to Dapeng Bay, a day of racing in Dapeng Bay then a return coastal race to Kaohsiung to complete the Regatta.

The Taiwan Strait Race 2011 is organised and conducted by the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club (RHKYC) with assistance and support from Kaohsiung City Government (KCG) and the Chinese Taipei Sailing Association (CTSA).
