Head of the Bay 2016

Saturaday 16 April 2016 at Middle Island

This event is unique in Hong Kong as it is held on an open water course, while most fine boat racing is on the flat waters of the Shing Mun River.

The rowers face new challenges from the water conditions and also difficult navigation. Where the races on the Shing Mun River are straight, in Deep Water Bay each coxswain must accurately steer to the marker buoys then complete quick turns around the marks.

We hope to have a wonderful array of competitors and supporters for the 60th anniversary event. With their help we aim to create an extraordinary regatta experience both on and off the water.
