    This two-day, three-race regatta will feature over 100 boats in ten different classes of racing and is one of the oldest regattas in the region, with a history dating back to 1889.

    The iconic Victoria Harbour will be the backdrop for this major event, which will also include a 75th anniversary celebration of the original opening of the Club’s headquarters at Kellett Island.

    The Autumn Regatta, along with the Club’s Spring Regatta held last May makes up the new Edmond de Rothschild Regatta Series. The cumulative results of all classes of racing in both regattas will be used to determine the overall Regatta Series winners.


    The 280-meter-tall Lumina Shanghai, developed by Henderson Land Group and designed by Gensler, is the tallest skyscraper in the Xuhui Riverside District.

    A sophisticated yet modern setting was derived by juxtaposition of Indochine-Vietnamese features and wood-fire inspired material palettes. Re-interpretation of the spatial order of a typical Indochine-Vietnamese mansion has been adopted to give hierarchy, layers and details to the space.
