The season begins in January with weekly water and land training sessions that focus on the upcoming local races in and around the Hong Kong territory (and potentially international races) from March to July. The race schedule typically includes a number of racing events ranging from the Club’s own Middle Island Cup to several other local events such as Lamma500, and many more.
The RHKYC Team boasts a professional coaching and training program now in considerable demand amongst HK dragon boat teams. This has yielded excellent race results for all of our boats with both the men’s and women's teams claiming the Stanley Gold Cup Championship in previous years as well as the highly competitive Hong Kong International races for the women’s and mixed crews. The team always welcomes new recruits of all fitness levels, ages, and experience. Given our broad range of squads for each event, everyone from the most competitive to the most social member of the team gets an opportunity to race!
Water training is only part of the equation for the RHKYC team. As well as training on weekends at Middle Island, there is a very popular fitness and core strength training session held at Kellett Island every Monday evening (at which even the sailors have been occasionally spotted amongst the rowers and paddlers)! This continues year-round even after the dragon boat racing "season" has ended and is open to all members of the club. Please contact Gianni Aprea for additional details.
