Thrilling New Way to See Hong Kong

[HD video below] Hong Kong tourism has a lot to offer, but now there’s a thrilling new way to spend time on one of the most spectacular harbours in the world. Residents and visitors to Hong Kong can enjoy premium Australian wines whilst sailing on a Volvo 60 Class high performance racing yacht.

The yacht was designed and built for the Volvo Round the World Ocean Race. This epic competition sees these high-tech vessels race around the globe in grueling conditions, often at speeds in excess of 30 knots. Volvo boats are the benchmark class for long distance offshore sailing and have a global following as the “Formula 1” of yachting. There are only 19 of these yachts in the world. The yacht won the around-the-world race under legendary Skipper Paul Canard in 1998 and held the trans Atlantic and 24-hrs speed record.

Although the sailors in the Volvo Race travelled with 5kg of luggage and cut off the handle of their toothbrush to save weight, guests on board will experience this grand prix racing yacht in style with premium Australian wines and cheese from Adelaide Cellar Door. No sailing experience is required since the yacht is run by a professional sailing crew. It’s a great experience for sailors and non-sailors alike.

Since the yacht is still in its original racing kit, guests have the opportunity to see how the sailors lived and the lengths taken to reduce weight and increase speed.

The yacht will be a visible aspect of Hong Kong harbour life for up to 200 days a year. It can also be chartered for international races and local regattas.
