The Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club, in partnership with the Hong Kong, China Rowing Association, brought the excitement of rowing competition back to where it all started - the Victoria Harbour, with the 1st Harbour Regatta, to be held on 11 March 2017.
Following the success of the 2017 and 2018 Harbour Regattas, the event is back in 2019 with a slightly changed format, based on competitor feedback from the previous 2 regattas.
Sprint racing will take place in coastal boats, in a knock-out format, over a single 630m course with two turns. Two to Four crews will take part in each heat (depending upon the number of entries), with the winning crew in each race progressing to the next round of their event.
The Regatta will be held out of the RHKYC clubhouse at Kellett Island in Causeway Bay and takes place in the waters of Hong Kong harbour. Racing is scheduled to start at 8:30am and is expected to continue until around 4:30pm (depending upon the number of entries).
