THE 3rd HONG KONG INTERNATIONAL SUP CHAMPIONSHIP

2017 AUG 26

( SATURDAY )

THE BLUFF ISLAND TO EMERALD BAY (VRC), SAI KUNG

 

Following the great success from last year, we are trying to surmount ourselves by seeking a new and better race course this year. The race location was epic last year at Ham Tin Beach SAI KUNG, one of the most beautiful beach at the National Country Park in Hong Kong, the race course was a mix of formidable head wind, downwind and side wind, only the best could complete the race.  

 

This year, we will set the course at Sai Kung again becasue, SAI KUNG is famously claimed to be the 'back garden of Hong Kong', HK is surrounded by water, the territory includes 234 outer islands, many which produce great conditions for SUP paddling, especially the clear blue waters in Sai Kung Peninsula.

Victoria Recreation Club

EMERALD BAY, SAI KUNG

ADDRESS: DD 252 Lot 316, Tai Mong Tsai, 210 Tai Mong Tsai Road, Sai Kung , New Territories

 

In 1849, on the shoreline of Hong Kong Harbour where the City Hall stands today, the original Victoria Recreation Clubhouse was established.  Having been in operation in Canton since 1832 the VRC is distinguished as the oldest sporting and recreation club in the territory. The primary functions of the club were water sports, with rowing in the main. Early members also enjoyed social gatherings in a congenial colonial setting in the spacious and well-appointed clubhouse, highlighted by an annual Grand Ball.

Emerald Bay could well be considered the crown jewel of the Sai Kung Peninsula and the VRC Clubhouse is blessed to sit high atop at its peak on the waterfront.  Enjoying stunning panoramic views across from Sharp Island in Port Shelter, it will make one easily forget that they are living in the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong.

By taxi : 10 mins from Sai Kung to the Victoria Recreation Club

By bus # 94 (every 30 mins) : 20 mins from Sai Kung to Au Kung Wan,
