Mr Fan

Macau movesFan Kwei Sum, or Mr Fan to wooden boat owners in Hong Kong, was born in Canton not long before his family moved to
Hong Kong in 1936. His father set up a slipway in Stanley and, with five generations of shipwrights before him, became a noted builder of fishing boats on Hong Kong Island . . .

 
The importance of
sports clubs
In
COPYRIGHT © 2016 FRAGRANT HARBOUR PUBLICATIONS LTD
’s Number 284 issue, we wrote about the importance of sports clubs and the difficulty of obtaining land and facilities for them. Water sports require much less land than land-based sports. Nevertheless, expansion of our water sports is severely handicapped by a lack of facilities . . .
 
This year the weather is definitely following a different pattern. Macau’s Hac Sa Beach for days has been covered with thick mist like a scene from the Mystery of the Mary Celeste. Cooler weather seems to be persisting much later in the year. This has discouraged the majority of our fair weather sailors . . .
 

By the time you read this we should be a few days from setting off for the Cruiser Owners’ Association’s Midsummer Rally from the 30th of April to the 2nd of May 2016. This year, for a change, we will take the rally north to Mirs Bay. On the Saturday there will be three simultaneous pursuit races starting from RHKYC, ABC and HHYC to Shek O Rock, where the fleets will converge and then race up to HHYC to join the Hebe Hoe Down party . . .

 
Hobie Challenge The recently-concluded Philippine Hobie Challenge, sponsored by Cherry Mobile, saw another Aussie coming! For the last couple of years, the Challenge has been dominated by Australian sailors showing their exemplary skills on the water. This year was no different . . .
