Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club regrets to announce the deferment of the 2020 Rolex China Sea Race. Originally due to start on 8 April, the ongoing Covid-19 virus epidemic has resulted in the Race fleet's inability to enter the Philippines.

The deferred edition of the Rolex China Sea Race will now take place in 2021, after which the Race will return to its original rhythm of 'even' years for the biennial Race (i.e. the next three editions will be held in 2021, 2022 and 2024).

A Notice of Race for the 2021 Rolex China Sea Race will be published in due course.

Over Easter this year the Club will instead run a standalone A to A offshore race of approximately 450nm to 500nm and further details of the race will be available shortly.
