Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club


One of the oldest and most prestigious clubs in Hong Kong, the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club is proud of its rich history and heritage, which stretches back over 150 years of social and competitive sailing and rowing.   

Founded as Hong Kong Corinthian Sailing Club in 1890 and became the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club in 1894, it is one of the few local institutions which kept its prefix "Royal" after Hong Kong's handover to the People's Republic of China in 1997.

Early members were British only and military personnel on the board. Today, members are a mix of British expatriates and local Chinese.

Shenzhen Vanke Longcheer Yacht Club


As the first yacht club in mainland China, LYC ranks first in terms of professionalism and the number of berths and members. Established in 1998, the Club witnessed the growth of Chinese yachting from scratch to prosperity. It is currently the main venue for China Cup. 

Shenzhen Vanke Longcheer Yacht Club has developed to the biggest yacht club in China, with over 400 members and nearly a hundred berths.

Due to the outstanding performance in Round Hainan Island International Regatta, Shenzhen Vanke Longcheer Yacht Club was awarded by Hainan provincial government and the organizing committee as "Special Contribution Award” in promoting keelboat sailing in China.

New Sports Ocean Sports Center


Just adjacent to the Longcheer Yacht Club, the New Sports Ocean Sports Center (formerly Marina Sports Base) is majestically built along the beautiful beach facing the Daya Bay at Nan’ao peninsula. It was the sailing and sailboard venue for the 26th World University Games in Shenzhen in 2011.The marina has 200 berths and a 410-meter breakwater. Covering 204,000 sqm, onshore construction comprises of an audience service center and a three-floor athlete center with onshore facilities including shops, cafes, media center and other functional rooms. The base will greatly enable the regatta with an increased capacity for more racing boats and larger on-shore service area.

The New Sports Ocean Sports Center will provide berths for all yachts in one-design classes like Beneteau First 40.7, Bavaria Cruiser 37 and J80s attending the 11th China Cup. The main service area for competitors, sponsors and spectators will be located in the on-shore square of the base where a variety of entertainment events will be staged and a constant flow of chilled beer and wine will be provided.





From “Across Four Oceans Inter-continental Voyage” to China Cup International Regatta

The China Cup International Regatta is originated from an inter-continental voyage by a group of Chinese sailing enthusiasts. The voyage covered halfway around the globe across 7 seas in Europe, Africa and Asia, sailing 11,000 nautical miles passing 26 countries and regions, and visiting 45 ports.

This was the FIRST nongovernmental cross-continent sailing voyage made by Chinese.

These Chinese sailing enthusiasts were keen to participate in a sailing event initiated by their own country and then came up with the idea of creating a Chinese regatta. The idea was supported by Chinese Yachting Association, and the General Administration of Sport of China located the secretariat of China Cup International Regatta in Shenzhen.

On 19 Oct, 2007, the first edition of China Cup finally took place in Daya Bay, Shenzhen after a year’s intensive preparation.
