****NOTE: As we're currently practicing for the upcoming races, we won't accept any new members for the next few months. Please stay tuned for future possibilities of joining Loreley.****
Loreley (暴風女神, which means Goddess of the storm in Cantonese) dragon boat team has been in HK for over 20 years. We are a well respected team known for our work/play balance. We take our training seriously, Thursday evenings for landtraining in HK Park Central with our personal trainer, and Sunday afternoons on the water in Stanley. There is no mucking about, and we get results.... We came in 9th in last year's 1K race during the Lamma 500. However after each training we hang out at a local bar for several beers and snacks, and meet up for social events (including a team junk and party) throughout the season. The social aspect is very important to us, the team is open to all nationalities and professions, all we ask for is a commitment to the team- to the training and to having fun with your teammates! We are sponsored by wellknown companies which, along with our fundraising Stanley party helps us keep our costs low and enables us to make a large donation to the 'HK Federation of Handicapped Youth' each year. Come join Loreley to meet new friends, try a new sport, get out on the water and get fit!
