Cruising comments
 
 

“12 knots, gusting 20,” was heard on the committee boat as it nosed out into Port Shelter on Sunday, the 18th of August 2019. “Give the faster boats Course 94 which takes in TCS1. Twenty-six nautical miles so they can stretch their legs.” Very promising . . .

 

Hong Kong Resort Co Ltd has announced a new name and new phase for Discovery Bay Marina Club (DBMC). The club’s marina is currently under renovation and, when re-opened, will be named Lantau Yacht Club (LYC) . . .

 

It was bright but hazy when the warning signal sounded for the final two races of the Peroni Summer Saturday Series 2019, on the 10th of August 2019 . . .

 

As predicted by the race officer, Inge Strompf, conditions were ‘lumpy’ in the open water outside Port Shelter, near Trio Island, where the committee boat dropped anchor for Races 6 & 7 of the UK Sailmakers Typhoon Series 2019 . . .

 

An Island course had been scheduled for Race 6 of the Hebe Haven Yacht Club’s Summer Saturday Series and the forecast for the day was Force 3. So, medium-distance courses were selected . . .

 

Held between the 17th and 24th of July in Miho Bay, Japan, the Laser Radial Men’s World Championship was won by Simon de Gendt who maintained his lead to win the event . . .

 

It was touch and go whether race officer, Gareth Williams, would give the 51 boats milling around Shelter Island a start, or not? The breeze had swung from 160 to 300 degrees . . . and fallen from 6 knots to 1 knot . . .

 

Once again the Peroni Summer Saturday Series 2019 was blessed with fair winds. A 13-knot south-southwesterly, with occasional gusts of 18, meant there was plenty of action on the water . . .

 

A Hong Kong summer can throw up all sorts of testing conditions, particularly along the territory’s eastern seaboard. So it proved for Races 3 and 4 of the UK Sailmakers Typhoon Series 2019 . . .

 

Burning heat greeted the 30 starters for Race 3 of the Peroni Summer Saturday Series, held on the 29th of June 2019. . . .

 

The Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club’s biennial Hong Kong to Vietnam Race, a 673-nautical-mile passage down to Nha Trang on the south-eastern coast of Vietnam will start on the 15th and 16th of October . . .
