The Law Society of Hong Kong Dragon Boat Team – 2017 Review
Event date: 
31 December 2017

2017 has been a long year for the Dragon Boat Team. In the first half of the year, the team started strongly with tremendous results in the Stanley Warm-Up Race and the Sun Life Stanley International Championships. However, luck was not on their side towards the end, and the team could only capture the 2nd Runner-Up at the Legal Professional Cup and 1st Runner-Up in the lower division of the RSCP Dragon Boat Race, both held in June.

After a short July break, the team recharged and regrouped for the second half of the year. The team started with a short-course race in Cheung Chau in September, followed by another short-course race in Macau in October. It is the second consecutive year that the Law Society was represented in Macau. This year, the team fielded a men’s team and a women’s team, and the men’s team staged a strong performance by finishing first in the qualifying round and directly proceeding to the semi-finals.

To draw this year to a close, the team would like to thank all past and current team members for their tireless commitment, and the Recreation and Sports Committee for its support. Dragon boating is a tough but amazing sport that demands every stroke and inch from the team. If you are looking for a sporting challenge, please contact the team at lawsochk.dbt@gmail.com!
