Dragon Boat Team Hong Kong
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.
If you are not sure if dragon boating is the right activity for you, come to one of our free open training sessions. Check out the upcoming events for details.
Prepare to get wet, so make sure to bring a spare change of clothes (as well as some flip flops to wear on the beach); showers and changing rooms are located at Stanley Main Beach.
Don’t forget that you need to stay hydrated on the water, so make sure to bring your reusable water bottle; let’s do our share of plastic free oceans!
We meet every Thursday evening and Sunday afternoon.
Our regular training sessions are scheduled on Sunday afternoons; we’re meeting at the boathouse of the Stanley Dragon Boat Association at Stanley Main Beach
At the beginning of the season, our fitness trainers from Strength Culture will meet us at Hong Kong Park on Thursday nights to help us build up strength. Starting from mid-April, we will have water trainings in Stanley on Thursday nights.
For your first training, please arrive at least 30 minutes before the start of the session in order to receive some technical and safety instructions.
The boat will leave the beach on time and we will usually not return to pick up late crew members!!!
