The 33nd edition of the most iconic Hong Kong’s regatta, Beneteau Four Peaks Race is ready to set off on this weekend, 21-22 January.
This annual overnight multisport race has been organized by the Aberdeen Boat Club since 1985. The Four Peaks Race is about top performance. With the average boat taking 24 hours to complete the race last year, the event requires landings by transfer craft or swimming, speed and strategy on land over rough terrain, and fine seamanship and sailing skills on the water. Tactics, practice and stamina play a big part, and while competitors come back again and again for both the excitement and the camaraderie. 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.
This year 21 boats have entered the race with three Beneteau sail boats attending: Sense 50, Sense 47 and First 37.1. We are excited to confirm that a Sense 50 crew will include our Simpson Marine broker, David Walder, one of our finest sailors in the company. Other crew members will include Beneteau Asia’s representatives Thibaut de Montvalon, Beneteau Asia Managing Director. Stay tuned for developments and cheer for our competitors on the landing points or on the hillside check points at Lantau Peak, Mount Stenhouse, Violet Hill, and Ma On Shan.
See you on the water this weekend!
