The second edition of the Beneteau Cup Hong Kong sailing event will take place from 29-30 October 2022 at Aberdeen Boat Club (Middle Island) and The Bay (Mo Tat Wan).
All Beneteau sailboat owners in Hong Kong and the region are invited to join in the annual two-day regatta, which was held for the first time in May last year.
Co-organisers Beneteau and Simpson Marine have confirmed the 2022 event includes two races — an islands race on day one and a pursuit race on day two.
A themed awards gala dinner will be staged at ABC Middle Island on the first evening, with live music. The second day features the pursuit race and award ceremony sunset party at The Bay restaurant on Lamma Island, with a water toys experience.
The inaugural Beneteau Cup Hong Kong, held in May 2021, attracted 21 teams, ranging in size from a First 25s to an Oceanis 51.1.
“The first Hong Kong edition of the Beneteau Cup was a tremendous success,” says Richard Allen, Simpson Marine group general manager. “We expect to see even more entries in 2022 and there is already much anticipation for the 2022 Beneteau Cup as it has already become a firm favourite and was the talk of the town [last] summer. We hope to see all Beneteau owners with their crews, friends and family again in 2022 to have a fun time on and off the water!”
