If you happen to be on the south side of Hong Kong Island in February, you’re sure to love the sight of dozens of competitors racing their way through the emerald green South China Sea.
Hong Kong Race Week is the premier sailing event in Hong Kong, and a main fixture in the international youth dinghy scene.
This competition is now in its seventh year, with 249 young sailors from 12 nations taking part in Hong Kong Race Week in 2019.
