The Hong Kong Four Peaks Race is one of the most challenging regattas in Asia as it combines sailing, running and paddling. Make sure you sign up at Aberdeen Boat Club website, www.abclubhk.com
This annual overnight multisport race has been organized by the Aberdeen Boat Club since 1985 and the Club is delighted to announce the 33rd running of the race in 2017. The Beneteau Four Peaks Race is about peak performance. With the average boat taking 24 hours last year, the race requires ship-to-shore landings by transfer craft or swimming, speed and strategy running over land on rough terrain, and fine seamanship and sailing skills on the water. Tactics, practice and stamina play a big part, and the rewards of excitement and comradery bring competitors back again and again. This unique sporting challenge is considered one of the most testing competitions in the region. It requires the highest levels of fitness and seamanship from the competitors and the best of race stewarding and safety management from the organizers.
