Row in the Harbour 

Victoria harbour was a major venue for rowing in Hong Kong as early as 1841, however, with both the sport and its races relocating to less busy waters in the intervening period, rowing regattas have been absent from the iconic Hong Kong harbour skyline for over 60 years.  

 

Until recent years, purpose -designed coastal rowing boats, used internationally in the rough water conditions, allow us to make harbour rowing a reality once again in the centre of Hong Kong.
