Hong Kong International Dragon Boat Races

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.
