Socials, Eating and Drinking 

Social Programme

The start of the Hong Kong Nationals is not far away and our Socials team has been hard at work putting together a full programme of events. An eclectic combination of functions, some official and some optional, have been put together to help you make the most of your stay in Hong Kong.

Full details of all the events, together with order forms, are attached - please pre-book for guest tickets to official events, and for the number-restricted optional events, to avoid disappointment!

In addition, you can pre-order your sandwich for collection at Middle Island before you go out sailing, saving valuable time each morning – the sandwich order form is also attached.
