The race area is bounded by straight lines joining the following co-ordinates (WGS 84 Datum) from (A) to (F) and the adjacent shoreline:
(A) 22 deg. 17.129’N / 114 deg. 09.792’E

Mooring buoys will be laid to mark the limit of the race area. Lighters, ferries and launches will make fast to the mooring buoys to enclose the race area throughout the events. Other than crafts participating in the IDBR, no vessel will be permitted to enter the race area. Vessels navigating in the vicinity should proceed with caution.

Two pontoons will be moored to the Central Pier 10 and Central waterfront respectively from 11 June 2019 to 17 June 2019. Owners and coxswains of vessels are advised to use other landing steps and piers in the vicinity.

In the event of inclement weather, the IDBR may be postponed to the fallback dates from 22 to 23 June 2019 and be held in Shing Mun River, Sha Tin.
