Sign up for the Benetea Fou Peaks race
Asia’s ultimate sailing and peak running challenge the Beneteau Four Peaks Race will stage a grand comeback on February 3rd 2018 for its 34th edition. Each year, this iconic sailing adventure in Hong Kong, the only one of its kind in Asia attracts hundreds of sailors and runners of various levels and ages, combining elements of serious sailing, paddling, and mountain running. Last year's race received 21 boat entries and over 150 participants.
The two-day event is considered as the most demanding multisport race in the region, requiring strong teamwork, high-level seamanship and endurance, as well as good time management skills. Each crew, made up of sailors and runners, is required to conquer four landmark peaks throughout Hong Kong. During the day and night, the boats sail to the islands, where the runners are dropped off to race in kayaks on the beaches and master the peaks for each round.
This classic race is organized by the well-known Aberdeen Boat Club in Hong Kong, with Beneteau as its title-sponsor since the last edition. Generous support comes from Simpson Marine, Beneteau’s regional partner.
Given the low temperature of the water in February and the rough terrain on the roads, the Beneteau Four Peaks Race is both physically and tactically challenging. Nevertheless, competitors come back each year for the excitement and camaraderie. If you’re a Beneteau boat owner, a sailor, or a runner, why not sign up for the 2018 edition? It’s guaranteed to be a memorable experience. Contact Aberdeen Boat Club now for registration. Please click the link here.
