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.
