Team Loreley (暴風女神; “Goddess of the Storm”) has a long history in Hong Kong and is participating in various dragon boat races around Hong Kong, including in the famous Sun Life International Race in Stanley. Even though the name “Loreley” is a German name, our team is not. We are a truly international Dragon Boat Team with members from all over the world.
If you want to join the team, or just try out dragon boating, please drop us a line!
But to take away any illusions from the beginning, we do not meet for romantic paddling…
As this is a team sport, everybody contributes to the team, trains hard and has to listen to the coach or captain of the boat! But paddling is also about fun and not all is about competition. Team Loreley is socially engaged and supports the Federation of the Handicapped Youth in Hong Kong.
Our after-training get-togethers are fun and reward you for your great efforts for the team during training. If you have more questions or would like to join the team, send us an e-mail or simply come to a training session in Stanley.
Our Recruitment for the 2020 has begun! Whether you’re new to the sport or an experienced paddler – please join us at our Open Day to learn more and be part of a great group of people!
We train twice a week, with Sunday afternoon being our main water training!
Our regular meeting point is at Stanley Water Sports Centre at Stanley Beach. Please make sure you arrive 30 mins before the start of training, especially if you are a new paddler.
At the beginning of the season we have regular strength training with our trainers from Strength Culture. Please keep an eye on our Meetup Page to stay informed about training times and locations.
Mid-way through the season we then switch to a Thursday evening water training.
If you have any questions or would like to join us, feel free to sign up on our Meetup Page or send us a message on Facebook.
