Visitors

Visitors who reside in Hong Kong are welcome to accompany members using LBC facilities up to three times before being required to join the club. Friends of LBC who regularly crew, paddle, or row with us are expected to join the club as members.

How to Join

The LBC General Committee strongly recommends that prospective members attend one or two club events or come down to the beach on a weekend to meet members and learn about the club before applying for membership. To apply for membership, new members must find a proposer and a seconder. For more information, contact any club officer.
