Although somewhat hazy, the seasons had changed for the first day of the Aberdeen Boat Club’s annual Opening Regatta 2022, this year held on Saturday . . .

 

If there’s one thing that can be said about the Hebe Haven Yacht Club, it’s that community spirit is given high priority. Practically every day of the week there is something happening on the dock . . .

 

The opening event of Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club’s 2022-23 sailing season – the Autumn Regatta – got underway in Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbour in hot and hazy conditions . . .

 

Hebe Haven Yacht Club was a hive of activity on Saturday, the 17th of September 2022, for Bart’s Bash Regatta 2022. This year the event comprised two components . . .

 

On the 1st of September, the Ombudsman released its direct investigation report on the ‘Problem of Alleged Illegal Operation of Kaito Ferry Service’ . . .

 

Hong Kong Customs and the Marine Police mounted a joint anti-smuggling operation on the 17th of August and seized a cargo vessel in the southwestern waters of Hong Kong . . .

 

Not a lot of wind forecast but spirits were high among crews gathering off Middle Island for the final of the Aberdeen Boat Club’s Summer Series 2022 . . .

 

The ninth race in the UK Sailmakers Typhoon Series 2022 brought an end to seven days of competitive racing inside Port Shelter and along Hong Kong’s beautiful eastern seaboards . . .

 

Spread over three months, the Hebe Haven Yacht Club’s annual, nine-race Typhoon Series goes back to the 1980s. It features geometric and islands courses at two-week intervals and, as the name suggests . . .

 

Last year – same race, same series – the selected course took the 24-strong fleet westwards around Cheung Chau Rock and back to Yung Shue Wan on Lamma Island. This year . . .

 

With the Observatory forecasting Force 4 or higher, it was a confident race management team that steamed out past Shelter and Table Islands on Sunday, the 7th of August . . .

 

Sunday, the 31st of July, was another scorcher, with temperatures in the mid-30s all around the territory. According to the Observatory, Hong Kong had experienced 10 days with temperatures of 35 degrees or higher and 21 hot weather warnings . . .

 

After the blistering heat of the previous week, conditions on Saturday, the 30th of July, for the final race day of the Peroni Summer Saturday Series 2022 made for quite a change . . .

 

It was a scorcher of a day. Temperatures soared above 35 degrees and Sunday, the 24th, was declared Hong Kong’s hottest July day since records began in 1884 . . .
