Passion to go beyond
At HKCRA, we believe that rowing is so much more than just a sport. It’s a defiant attitude that refutes the right to give anything less than the best of one’s strengths and abilities, a commitment to explore personal and collective potential, and a shared journey of rising up to every challenge that culminates into lifelong bonds of friendships
As the governing body of rowing in Hong Kong, we are driven by an indomitable spirit to go beyond conventional limit and grow an inclusive community of rowing enthusiasts that not only share in our love of the sport, but also a passion to connect to the environment and comradery it fosters.
From advocating wellness through our sport, inspiring and nurturing new sporting talent, to pushing the boundaries of excellence in all that we do, we move beyond the status quo to shape the future of rowing in the region.
