Message of The Chairman
Dear Rowing Friends,
I would like to take this opportunity to express my profound gratitude to our founding Chairman, Mike Tanner, who has passed on the chairmanship baton after 41 years of dedication in developing rowing in Hong Kong. Since HKCRA established in 1978, Mike has grown rowing from just a handful number of rowers, to an elite sport with rowing programs across secondary schools, universities and communities with over thousands of rowers. Last year, under his leadership, Hong Kong became the city of pride hosting the 2019 World Rowing Coastal Championships, with over 450 world rowing contestants racing in the beautiful Victoria Harbour. Salute to his amazing contribution and achievement to rowing in Hong Kong.
As the incoming Chairman, I’m committed, together with the current Board of Directors, to build upon the solid foundation established and make rowing an even more popular sport in Hong Kong. This will count on not only the effort of HKCRA, but also everyone of your support. I am looking forward to working hand in hand with you all to make rowing even more lively in the years to come.
𝙇𝙚𝙩’𝙨 𝙍𝙤𝙬 𝙉 𝙍𝙤𝙘𝙠!
