O50 萬歲龍舟邀請

O50 Grand Dragon Boat Invitational Races

2016 / 9 / 25

-    O50 萬歲龍舟邀請賽將於精工錶第十八屆香港龍舟錦標賽內舉行,賽事日期暫定為2016年9月25日。


-    “ 萬歲 ” 寓意長壽。


-    藉著10艘中龍,每艘 22位參加者各50歲以上,即總數 “ 萬歲 ” ,向中國香港龍舟總會祝壽。

- Another initiative for the celebration will be to organize a race called "O50 Grand Dragon Boat Invitational Races" (O50萬歲龍舟邀請賽) which will be held at the Seiko 18th Hong Kong Dragon Boat Championships tentatively scheduled on 25th September 2016.

 

- The phrase "Wansui" (萬歲 literally "Ten Thousand Years") was used to wish a person's long life.

 

- With 10 entries of 22 racers each at the age of over 50, we will achieve a combined age of about "10,000" for all the racers to "wish" HKCDBA longevity.
