Race Course

The race will start and finish in front of the RHKYC Clubhouse on Kellett Island. There will be two courses, each of 2 lanes. The course on the Hong Kong side will be used for 2x races, the course on the Kowloon side will be used for 4x races. Each lane is approximately 300m long, each with a large marking buoy at their western end.


On being started by the umpire at the start, crews are required to race towards the buoy at the end of their lane. They will then turn around their buoy in a direction that takes them towards the the Hong Kong side of the course, and race back to the finish line (same position as the start line), a total of approximately 600m.
