Taiwan or Hong Kong? Plus don’t miss the boat for St. George!

On April 11, 2013 by Jean-Benoît_Delpy_Bourcart




After our great experiences in Macau and Penang last year and in Korea in 2011, the British dragons are again looking to join one of the international dragon boat races in the region!

At the beginning of the year we shared our plan to go to Taiwan and join the Taipei international dragon boat races in June. A large group of people registered for this race, which is great!

Based on the latest information the Taiwan races are scheduled for Sunday 9th June and Wednesday 12th June (a public holiday in Taiwan to celebrate the dragon boat festival!). This would assume that we will need to take 4 days of leave in order for us to participate in this race.

At the same time we would like to propose the Hong Kong International Dragon boat Carnival as an alternative to the Taiwan race.

This looks like an great opportunity to go away with the team, with only 1 or 2 days leave needed and todo lots of races in a very competitive and international field! And a great party afterwards 🙂
– Race: Hong Kong International Dragon boat festival 2013
– Location: Victoria Harbour, Hong Kong
– Dates: Friday 21 June until Sunday 23 June
– Race distances: 250m and 500m
– Race categories: Open, Mixed and Women + a Fancy Costume race
– Sunday night race dinner & party

For both the HK and Taiwan races, please assume flight prices will range between SGD 300-450 depending on timing and availability. There is a possibility that accommodation in HK will be provided by the organization, but this is yet to be confirmed.

Since we only recently came to know of the Hong Kong race we’ll have to move fast so please let us know whether you would prefer Taiwan/Hong Kong/Either/Neither using the following registration form before Saturday 13th April:

(*Please note that to race with the team overseas you must have raced at least once with the team in a Singapore event).
We will come back to you as soon as possible with more information based on your feedback
