    COURSE: Hong Kong, China - Subic Bay, The Philippines
    DISTANCE (nm): 565

    Organised by the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club with the co-operation of the Manila Yacht Club and Subic Bay Yacht Club.

    A biennial race, the 2018 edition included Karl Kwok's MOD 70, Beau Geste which went on to break the multihull record. This is one of ocean racing's blue water classics with crews returning year after year for the blast reach across the South China Sea before transitioning into the tactically challenging Luzon Hole and on into the pristine waters of Subic Bay.

    As spring arrives in the Solent and boats return to the water, the RORC Easter Challenge offers crews the chance for some vital pre-season training and fine-tuning. With the relaxation of RRS41, the highlight of the event is the availability of a selection of experienced coaches on the water to assist teams with getting back up to speed.

Royal Ocean Racing Club - since 1925

The RORC was founded in 1925 to encourage long distance yacht racing and the design, building and navigation of sailing vessels in which speed and seaworthiness are combined. Today the club encourages ocean, long distance and other forms of yacht racing and yachting activity.
