The Hong Kong Sailing Federation in conjunction with co-organiser the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club is pleased to release the Notice of Race for the sixth edition of Hong Kong Race Week. To be run from 12 to 17 February 2019, the regatta is a constituent event of the ASAF Youth Cup and represents Leg 2 of the 2018 – 2019 series.

Serving as a significant platform for promising Asian sailors to hone their skills, Hong Kong Race Week is a feeder regatta to other major international regattas around the world. The recent Asian Games held in Jakarta saw 2018 Hong Kong Race Week competitor India's Harshita Tomar take home Bronze in the Laser 4.7 division.

Hong Kong Race Week Chairman, Peter Davies, expressed his delight in being able to welcome back competitors and invite new sailors to compete in the 2019 regatta. Davies remarked that he anticipated the event attracting 260+ of the top youth sailors from the Asia Pacific region and afar, including sailors from China, Macau, India, Italy, Dubai, Qatar, Indonesia, Cambodia, Singapore, Thailand, Chinese Taipei, Australia, New Zealand and the USA.

11 classes will compete in the 2019 edition of the event, including the sailing classes 29er, 2.4mR, 420, 470, Laser 4.7, Laser Radial, Optimist, Optimist Green, RS Feva and windsurfers classes RS:X Youth and Techno 293. Sailors will race on Hong Kong's renowned world-class racetracks which are located in Repulse Bay, Deep Water Bay, Stanley, Tai Tam and Beaufort Island.

We invite you to join us for the best racing in Asia. Entry is now open, and the NoR is available online at hongkongraceweek.com.
