ONE GLOBAL HKRNVR MEMORIAL VASE

Postponed

A harbour pursuit race and a constituent event of the Top Dog Trophy Series.

The Vase was presented to the Club more than 70 years ago by the local Royal Naval Volunteer Reserves with the proviso that "the course should take participating yachts into waters patrolled by
the HKRNVR." The HKRNVR is now defunct but the trophy continues to serve as a reminder to yachtsmen of when amateur sailors played their part in the security of Hong Kong.

PLEASE DON'T BRING SINGLE-USE PLASTIC TO OUR CLUB

Since 2016 RHKYC has banned single-use plastic bottles, bags, straw and cutlery etc. and continues to minimise the use of single-use plastic, please help spread the word to members and guests alike.  Also, when returning from a day out on the water please separate your rubbish into the correct recycle bins, thank you!
 

REFURBISHMENT OF SHELTER COVE MARINA

Major work on the replacement of the wooden walers, coverboards, steelwork, where required, and through rods for all the marina berths will begin after Chinese New Year.  All the berths in the marina will be affected by the work which is expected to take six months to complete. There will be no work conducted on Saturdays, Sundays and Public Holidays. The work will begin at the south end of the marina.

During the work, two and sometimes four boats in the marina will have to vacate their present berth so that their finger pier can be dismantled for inspection before being reassembled with new parts.  During this time the Club will allocate other berths in the marina for boats whose finger pier will be worked on. However we may at times have to relocate one boat to the day pontoon, depending on the size of berths that are available.

Members will be contacted by the marine office when their boat is required to move.  Should the member not be able to move the boat the Club will be pleased do this on the members behalf.

During the work members may be asked to empty their dock boxes and boarding steps so that the Clubs staff can remove these from off the pontoon. 

The Marine Office would like to thank members in advance for their patience and co-operation during the refurbishment.

Should members have any questions please call the Marine Office on 22390309.

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.
