Sailonline is delighted to announce that it is once again partnering with Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club for the 8th running of Volvo Hong Kong to Vietnam Race, which starts in Hong Kong on 18 October - Sailonline's virtual race opened for practice on 11 October.

First conceived in 1996 when it was run at Lunar New Year, the real Hong Kong to Vietnam Race is a 673nm Category 1 offshore race and a biennial fixture in the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club sailing calendar. As a constituent event of RHKYC’s China Coast Race Week, the race aims to take advantage of October’s prevailing north east monsoon to give competitors a thrilling, predominantly downwind race from Hong Kong to Nha Trang on Vietnam’s eastern seaboard.

The 2017 edition of the race will see a 13-boat fleet chasing the current race record of 42h 41m 20s and again Sailonline’s TP52s will be going head to head with Freefire.
