The Volvo China Coast Regatta typically sees a quality fleet of 40 boats battle it out in the most superb sailing conditions that Hong Kong has to offer. This year, to encourage more entries from the HKPN racing division HKPN entries will race on only Saturday and Sunday with IRC Racer divisions racing from Friday to Sunday. Some of the fleet will also take part in the Volvo Hong Kong to Vietnam Race; a roughly 673nm “very exciting downhill run” to Nha Trang, Vietnam. 「Volvo 中國海岸帆船賽」將會由40艘賽船爭奪冠軍寶座,為吸引更多人士參加,本屆賽事更增設HKPN組別,HKPN比賽只設於星期六及日,而IRC組競賽則在星期五至日進行。有某部份賽船更會參加「Volvo 香港至越南賽」,全長673海里,以越南芽莊為終點。

The offshore fleet has an international flavour with 13 entries from Great Britain, Italy, China, Russia, Australia, Singapore and Hong Kong. This year, in order to allow the slower boats to arrive in time for the party in Nha Trang, there will be a first start for three boats on Tuesday 17 October with the remaining fleet starting on Wednesday 18 October. 其中有13支船隊將會參加離岸賽,名單包括:英國、意大利、中國、俄羅斯、澳洲、新加坡及香港。今年,為讓較慢的船隊能趕及參加於芽莊的賽後慶祝活動,其中三支隊伍將會在10月17日(星期二)首先出發,其餘隊伍將緊隨在10月18日(星期三) 出發。

New faces include Mascalzone Latino, a Cookson 50 owned by Matteo Savelli, Lion Rock, Michael Lunn's Azuree 40 and Jackie Siu and Lin Guangmu's Sense 50, Salalah. Russian sailor Alexander Vodovatov, returns to racing in Hong Kong with a First 40CR, No Applause.| 新面孔包括有Matteo Savelli的Cookson 50型Mascalzone Latino號、Jackie Siu 和 Lin Guangmu的Sense 50的 Salalah 號及由俄羅斯選手領航,再次回歸香港的First 40CR型No Applaus號。

Many eyes will be on China entry, UBOX, a Cookson 50 owned by Wang Bin and Australian entry, Alive, Philip Turner's Reichel/Pugh 66, both of whom also have early entries in for the 2018 Rolex China Sea Race. Competition between the two Cookson 50s will also be of keen interest. 萬眾矚目來自中國的參賽隊伍,由王濱帶領下的Cookson 50型UBOX號及來自澳洲Philip Turner的Reichel/Pugh 66型Alive號則同時參加了「2018勞力士中國海帆船賽」。相信兩艘Cookson 50型帆船將會進行一場龍爭虎鬥。

The Volvo Hong Kong to Vietnam Race is a biennial event in 2015 Black Baza lifted the trophies for IRC Racer 1 and IRC Overall. The current race record of 42h 17m 24s was set in 2015 by Syd Fischer’s Ragamuffin 100 at an average VMG of 15.8 knots. 「Volvo 香港至越南賽」是一場隔年進行的比賽,在2015年的賽事中則由Black Baza號包辦了IRC競賽1組冠軍及IRC 總冠軍。目前紀錄保持者是由Syd Fischer的Ragamuffin 100 號於2015年創下,時間為42小時17分24秒,平均有效航速為15.8海里。
