Hong Kong is a great place to learn the art of sailing!

Introductory courses for small boats (Dinghy) take 5 days, and you will obtain the Hong Kong Sailing Federation (HKSF) licence Level 1 & 2 at the end of it. It allows you to hire boats from government facilities in Hong Kong.

The HKSF website has a list of Recognized Teaching Centres in HK, and also other useful info on the scheme: http://www.sailing.org.hk/recognized-teaching-centres.aspx

The top 3 clubs are probably the best:
– Hebe Haven Yacht Club: http://www.hhyc.org.hk
– Aberdeen Boat Club: http://www.abclubhk.com
– Royal HK Yacht Club: http://www.rhkyc.org.hk

The course costs around  3000-4000 HKD, depending on which club you go with. I have heard that the government also offers cheaper sailing courses to HK citizens.

If your interest lies with bigger boats, here is a good place to do it: http://www.yachtingventures.com/
