Whichever way you look at it, signing a deal to supply 33 Lagoon catamarans to a customer in China is going to make us sit and pay attention. Simpson Marine have been doing deals in China for a long time, and business in Asia for even longer. The person we are sorry for is Lagoon's Production Manager who - presumably - is trying to find a LOT of space in the production schedule!

A new sailing season has started in Hong Kong - involving the RHKYC Sunset Series (Friday evenings - TGIF, but who needs an excuse anyway?), Hebe Haven's Saturday Series and (on alternating weekends) the well-loved Typhoon Series.

A little further north and the Korea International Boat Show opens its doors on 8 June, accompanied by the WMRT Korea Match Cup.

Summer's here. Go sailing!

Sunset Series set to kick off on Hong Kong's Victoria Harbour
RHKYC Media,
The emphasis of the series is definitely on fun racing, and the event is open to all classes of one-design keelboats, together with the 'Big Boats'. Boats are given an initial handicap rating which is adjusted for every race in which they participate – win, and a boat's rating gets tougher; have a bad day, and maybe that boat will win the following week....
