23 days after setting sail from Hong-Kong on its attempt at the Tea Route record, IDEC Sport is currently dealing with that tricky stretch of sailing involving crossing the Inter-Tropical Convergence Zone . . .

 

It was initially a bright Saturday afternoon as boats prepared to head out into Port Shelter for the first of two races in the Kowloon Cup, held over the weekend of the 18th and 19th of January . . .

 

Racing on the second day of the Macao Cup began in 10-knot easterly winds, off Macau’s Coloane Island. At the scheduled start time of 1000, only six boats had reached the committee boat . . .

 

It was a crisp 23-degree sunny Sunday morning on the 5th of January 2020 when race officer Chris Pooley, commodore of the Aberdeen Boat Club . . .

 

As the race management team gathered on Hebe One, there was much talk about beautiful blue skies and hardly anything said about wind . . . 3 to 4 knots . . .

 

Sunday, the 15th, dawned overcast and relatively warm for mid-December. More important, though, was the forecast Force 4-5 blowing in from the east . . .

 

A festive Christmas spirit prevailed at the Hebe Haven Yacht Club for Day 5, and finale, of the Monsoon Winter Series 2019. Out in Port Shelter on Saturday, the 14th ofDecember 2019, conditions were ideal with blue skies and an 8-knot southeasterly . . .

 

Of the 13 boats currently entered into the 30th edition of the China Sea Race, six international entries hail from as far afield as Russia, Philippines, Japan and the United States and mark the first sign-ups for this biennial blue water classic . . .

 

Picture perfect conditions welcomed 15 of the 25 registered entries for Race 6, the penultimate race day of the Hebe Haven Yacht Club’s Monsoon Winter Series 2019. Held out of Port Shelter, the breeze was better than expected at 7 knots from 110 degrees . . .
