The Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club (RHKYC) in conjunction with the Hong Kong Etchells Association will host the Etchells World Championships in November 2015. Hong Kong was selected at the International Governing Committee (IGC) Meeting held on Saturday, 4 June in San Diego where over 80 yachts from 11 countries are currently competing in the 2011 Etchells Worlds.

Commodore of the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club, Ambrose Lo, was thrilled to hear the news: 'This is very exciting news for both the Club and the fleet. The RHKYC is proud to be associated with the International Etchells class and is well positioned to support this event, both on and off the water.'

The International Etchells Class has been the yacht of choice for many of the world’s most famous sailors. Dennis Connor and John Bertrand, both winners of the Americas Cup, are active Etchells sailors and the fleet continues to attract helmsmen and tacticians from the America’s Cup and other famous fleets.

John Breen, Hong Kong Etchells Governor added: 'I am looking forward to welcoming competitive local sailors to our fleet in the run up to what promises to be a top class Regatta.'

Hong Kong last hosted the Etchells Worlds in 1997 when Paul-Ricard Hoj-Jensen took first place. Dates are yet to be finalised for 2015 but the proposed timing is for the first week in November.
