Things are hotting up in Hong Kong and for the right reasons! With only five days to go to the entry deadline we have a strong cadre of teams signed up to participate in this groundbreaking event. And not just any teams!

The Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron, Defender of the America's Cup, Young Azzura from Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, Yacht Club de France, Royal Netherlands Yacht Club and Royal Maas Yacht Club and two teams from Mainland China: China Foiling Academy supported by China Sports Industry group, as well as Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club's very own RHKYC Team Agiplast.

Says RHKYC's Team principal and organising committee Rune Jacobsen: "We are overwhelmed by the support the event is experiencing. We all understand that things could not be more difficult for all but we are encouraged by the positivity and desire to make this event a fantastic and competitive one."

There are currently many other countries and yacht clubs who are ready with their teams and in the last stage of securing funding, such as Yacht Clubs in the UK, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, South Africa, Australia and Switzerland. With this in mind the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club has now agreed to extend the deadline payment of the initial entry fee (US$5,000) to the 25th November 2020.

With support from Hong Kong Government, Hong Kong Sailing Federation, Persico 69F organization and Foiling Week™, the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club is looking much forward to host a globally leading Youth Foiling event here in Hong Kong in February and March 2021.

All documents for the Youth Foiling World Cup can be found here. To enter please use the "Book Now" button above the logo.

We target to have 12 teams on the start line and 16 teams is the absolute maximum limit.

We are happy to host individual zoom or WhatsApp calls and answer any questions you may have. Please reach out to and she will help coordinate a Zoom or WhatsApp call.
