The Sailing Federation of Hong Kong, China in conjunction with co-organiser the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club and the International 29er Association, are pleased to announce the 8th edition of Hong Kong's premier international regatta for dinghies and invited classes to take place from Tuesday 30 January to Sunday 4 February 2024.

The annual event returns to be held on Hong Kong's renowned world class racetracks and will incorporate the 2nd annual 2024 29er Asian Championship.

7 invited classes of 29er, 2.4mR, ILCA 4 & ILCA 6, Optimist, RS Feva, along with development classes of Optimist, Laser Pico and Fusion Green Fleets will be hosted in 2024. Racing will take place on the waters of Repulse Bay, Deep Water Bay, Stanley, Tai Tam and Beaufort Island - race tracks to the 2017 Optimist Asian and Oceania Championship, 2018 29er World Championship and the 2023 29er Asian Championship.

Serving as a significant foundation regatta for promising Asian sailors to hone their skills, Sun Hung Kai & Co. Hong Kong Race Week has positioned itself amongst the best racing in the world and is a significant event on the Asian youth dinghy scene.

With strong momentum generated post the Asian Games, Regatta Chair - Peter Davies, anticipates the event to attract more than 260+ of the top youth sailors from around the Asia Pacific region and further afield. Davies said the support that the event generates for the development of sailors in the region, was well documented with 4 past HKRW sailors enjoying medal success at the recent Asian Games in the ILCA 4, ILCA 6, ILCA 7 and 49er Classes.

Returning competitors from countries including Australia, China, Great Britain, Guam, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Macau, New Zealand, Singapore, Sweden, Qatar, Thailand, Chinese Taipei, UAE and the USA are expected in 2024.

We look forward to welcoming sailors to join this coveted major regatta on the Asian youth sailing circuit.

Entry is open here

The 2024 event will incorporate:

  • 2024 29er Asian Championship
  • Racing on 4 dedicated racecourses
  • Junior Development Invited Classes - Green Fleet Fusion | Pico | Optimist

Notice of Race, race documents, competitor, volunteer, and support boat registration are now available at: hongkongraceweek.com
