Take a deep breath, rush hour is about to start.

Over the next couple of months we've got the RHKYC Autumn Regatta, the ABC Opening Regatta, the China Coast Regatta, the Vietnam Race, the Asian Sportsboats Invitational, Hong Kong's Around the Island Race, the Raja Muda Selangor International Regatta, the China Cup International, the Phuket King's Cup AND the Monsoon Cup.

And just to make sure there really is enough for everyone to do, there is a new event in South Korea - the Mokpo-Jeju Race, which starts on 22 October. More on that one later.

Now take another breath, and start to mark up your calendars!
