The last two races of the Peroni Summer Saturday Series 2021 were held on Saturday, the 31st of July 2021. Rain and thunderstorms were forecast . . .

 

For the predicted light conditions, and the needs of six competing divisions, race officer Inge Strompf took a while to brief her team before venturing out into Port Shelter . . .

 

The forecast for Sunday, the 18th of July, was for 10 knots and, sure enough, in Tung O Wan off the southeast of Lamma Island . . .

 

Conditions seemed relatively benign as the committee boat, Hebe One, left Hebe Haven Yacht Club soon after midday, on Saturday the 17th of July 2021 . . .

The Mirs Bay Regatta 2021, organised by the Hebe Haven Yacht Club, as in 2020 comprised two races for HKPN rated boats . . .

 

The Mirs Bay Passage Race is one of the most popular races in the UK Sailmakers Typhoon Series. Traditionally it has involved an outward passage race to Mirs Bay on the Saturday and an evening prize-giving party and BBQ at Wong Shek . . .

 

Forecasts of squalls meant most sailors were well prepared for a possible drenching during Race 2 of the Aberdeen Boat Club’s seven-race Summer Series, on Sunday . . .

 

With Typhoon Signal No.1 still hoisted, it was a surprise to see patches of blue sky over Port Shelter as the committee boat, Hebe One, headed out for Races 1 & 2 of the Peroni Summer Saturday Series 2021 on Saturday . . .

 

Conditions were looking precarious as race officer, Dave Norton, briefed his volunteer race management team on the committee vessel, Hebe One, in preparation for Race 1 of the UK Sailmakers Typhoon Series 2021 . . .

 

The Aberdeen Boat Club’s Summer Series 2021 kicked off on Sunday, the 30th of May, in fine sailing conditions with a 10-strong IRC fleet rearing to go at 1030 and 11 HKPN boats staying back, preparing for their start at 1035 . . .

 

With Hong Kong’s Optimist sailors competing at International Optimist Dinghy Association (IODA) events, it is important that our sailors enhance their understanding and experience in team racing . . .

 

The tale of ‘Two men in a boat’ has been read by many and is a part of sailing history. This was added to on Saturday, the 29th of May – at least in the annals of Hong Kong sailing history – by ’87 ladies and girls in 19 boats’ . . .

 

Day 2 (Sunday) of the HHYC Scallywag Foundation Open Dinghy Regatta 2021 dawned much the same as Day 1 – incredibly blue skies and a fresh southerly breeze. Race officer . . .
