The first ever inter-school sailing regatta will take place tomorrow at Middle Island, Deep Water Bay. Six schools have taken up the challenge set by The Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club and will send their best three sailors to compete. Eight to 12-year-olds will race in Topaz class, a new boat suitable for beginners. 'We want to help more people experience sailing and get on the water,' said Jan Bochenski of the RHKYC. 'There aren't many football fields in Hong Kong but there is lots of ocean.'
