ST. JAMES'S PLACE SUNSET SERIES  

4 June to 20 August 

The ever-popular summer Sunset Series is held over 12 Fridays throughout the summer months. The series is open to all and is a good excuse to start the weekend early - fun, relaxed sailing with friends.  The race track is in front of the Club which makes it a great event for spectators if you don’t wish to sail. First warning signal is 1730hrs.

SAIL-TO-CHANGE

 
 
 

Using sailing to nurture and develop underprivileged Hong Kong children.

Sail-To-Change is a community outreach programme founded in 2019 by RHKYC members. The goal of the programme is to use sailing as a platform for character building and personal development for the underprivileged youths in Hong Kong to better prepare them for future life while learning how to treat our ocean with more care.

A bespoke Sail Training programme is designed to teach them the sport and club mentors will provide guidance and opportunities for them to get involved in wider sailing and racing activities. 

Ultimately, the aim is to develop lifelong soft skills and combined with sailing skills and deep understanding in sustainability it will create a positive impact in the lives of the underprivileged youths. Respect for nature, confidence in their skills and knowledge in the marine industry can better equip them in the future.

SHAM WAN RESTRICTED AREA 

The sandy beach at Sham Wan, Lamma Island, is the only regular nesting site of Green Turtles in Hong Kong. To strengthen the protection of the Green Turtle, with effect from 1 April, the Restricted Area will be expanded from five months to seven months (1 April to 31 October) every year. Unauthorised entry is subject to a maximum government fine of HK$50,000.

As the breeding season of the Green Turtle is coming soon, AFCD have asked us to remind our community of the following ...

- do not enter the Sham Wan Restricted Area at Lamma Island (see map) from 1 April to 31 October

- report sightings of sea turtles to AFCD by calling 1823
