Wow what a tremendous regatta we had this year. By all accounts, it was a spectacular event: the wind was great, the entries were higher than expected, the parties were awesome and the kit was first-class. I would like to thank the LBC Committee for all of their hard work, particularly Vice-Commodore Regatta- Stephen Wallace. The work that was put in really showed.
This year we made a special effort to go beyond our usual approach and managed to involve a Charity. Members and particpants donated graciously, and we were able to offer HK$17,500 to our chosen Charity, Youth Outreach, which assists disadvantaged kids in Hong Kong.
The racing was very good this year. If you have not checked out the race results, you can find them on our site.
But wait, racing season is not quite finished. We still have the Around Island Race. Please see details on the www.rhkyc.org.hk web site.
Because of the nature of this event, which is quite a long race and requires sailing in close proximity to hundreds of other vessels, we accept only experienced sailors for this event. If interested, please gain approval from me first.
