Hong Kong International Open Dinghy Regatta 2009 was held at Little Palm Beach, Hang Hau from Saturday 24 to Monday 26 October. Fresh from the Bronze Podium at the Junior European Championships in Hungary, Wing-ho Kwan & Wing-chun Lam of the Hong Kong Sea School were the leading 420 and 2nd overall in the 55-boat Open Fleet.. Ming-hin Leung & Bernard Ian Kay, who were just a place behind at Balaton were 2nd 420 (overall 8th) and Cudennec Yann & Sakai Akira 2nd 420 (overall 8th). A good 420 turnout in Hong Kong, which is very encouraging. Last year’s leading 420 team, Emerson Villena & Lester Troy Tyong of the Philippine Sailing Association were back this year, but won the event in their 470! See Full Results
