CCB (Asia) 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.

This year, the races will be held in Victoria Harbour on 14–16 June. As always, it promises to be a thrilling event in the home of modern dragon boat racing.
