This biennial Offshore Category One race is a classic 390nm downwind passage to Sanya, on the island of Hainan in southern China. The race is recognised as a qualifying race for the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race.
The current race record of 23h 31m 52s was set in the 2016 edition of the race by Seng Huang Lee's 100ft Super Maxi Scallywag.
Sanya is a great finish location for boats intending to continue on to other sailing events around the Asia-Pacific region.
The Hong Kong to Hainan Race is organised and conducted by the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club (RHKYC) with co-operation with the Bureau of Culture, Broadcast & TV, Publication and Sports of the Sanya Municipal Government with the finish hosted by Serenity Marina in Sanya, Hainan.
