The Stanley International Dragon Boat Championships 2020 has to be cancelled. It is a tough call but with all the uncertain situation of COVID-19 as well has the on-going and changing restriction. This leaves us no choice but to call off the races. In the meantime, we will keep providing Dragon Boat training and different water sport activities and there will be updates soon. Please stay tuned and let us know if you are interested.
Affected by pandemic of COVID-19 in the past few months, Stanley International Dragon Boat Championships has been postponed to 11 Oct 2020. Dragon Boat racing is not only a traditional activity associated with fun, excitement, camaraderie and sportsmanship, it is a ritual that has deep cultural heritage and springs from religious beliefs. It is believed that the rituals can help people to get rid of illness and diseases. It also worships the dragon to hope for better fortune and prosperity. Given that the COVID-19 development in HK is now under control and different leisure and sport activities are gradually resume full service. Unlike the past few decades, we cannot celebrate the Tune Ng Festival by filling the Stanley Main Beach with lovely dragon boaters and spectators this year. Yet, we are eager to keep the rituals and traditions by organizing the LET’S KEEP PADDLING – Bai Sun Parade. We sincerely wish everyone health and the speedy recovery of Hong Kong from the pandemic.
