Hong Kong International Dragon Boat Races
CCB (Asia) Hong Kong

It all started in 1976 when Hong Kong fishermen participated in an international dragon boat race (there was one foreign team — from Nagasaki, Japan) off Shau Kei Wan. Nobody would have guessed that this humble event would go on to spark an explosion of worldwide interest in dragon-boat racing and transform this ancient Chinese folk ritual into a modern international sport.

This year, the races will be held in Victoria Harbour from 22-24 June. As always, it promises to be a thrilling event in the home of modern dragon boat racing.
