劉漢華太平紳士 - 中國香港龍舟總會永遠名譽會長
Lau Hon Wah, Steve, SBS, JP
Honorary Life President, Hong Kong China Dragon Boat Association
熱烈恭賀香港龍舟代表隊在總教練Mr. Milan Krasny的帶領下於2016 年 3 月 26-31 日在澳洲阿德萊德舉行的「第十二屆亞洲龍舟錦標賽」中成功擊敗澳洲、中華台北、新加坡、印尼及澳門等勁旅在「小龍公開組別200米」中勇奪銅牌。港隊能創出佳績，我為運動員感到驕傲和自豪，他們的勇氣和毅力為香港龍舟運動帶來更高的榮譽，過去幾年訓練中所嘗到的辛酸亦終得到回報。
來到2016年的尾聲，本會已達成一個十分重要的里程碑 – 25週年銀禧誌慶。特別要感謝食物及衞生局局長高永文, BBS, JP抽空出席鑽石山荷李活廣場舉行的開幕慶典，為我們的「香港龍舟年」慶典揭開序幕，能夠看見普羅市民參與我們「香港龍舟年」慶祝活動及與各界人士一同分享我們的喜悅和成果，使我感到十分窩心。見證著龍舟總會這廿五載的轉變，從古到今，希望這優良傳統能夠一直薪火相傳。
Congratulations to the coaches of Hong Kong National Team headed by Mr. Milan Krasny and all athletes on their fruitful achievements in winning the bronze medal of the “Small Boat Open 200 Meter” race category at the 12th Asian Dragon Boat Championships held at 100 Military Road West Lakes, South Australia, Australia dated March 26-31, 2016.
2016 is the 25th Silver Jubilee Anniversary of the Association. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Dr. Ko Wing-man, BBS, JP, Secretary for Food and Health who spent time with us for officiating the Hong Kong Year of Dragon Boating at Plaza Hollywood in Diamond Hill. I am more than happy to share this special moment and witness the changes of HKCDBA for the past 25 years with all of you. I am sure the spirit of dragon boating would last forever and ever in Hong Kong.
On the other hand, the 2016 Hong Kong International Dragon Boat Races 40th Anniversary has relocated this year to Central from Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade. Despite the wind and the rain, the weather did not slow down the spirit of athletic drive of these thousands of athletes or stop them in achieving what they set out to do. Please stay tuned for a tense and exciting event in the upcoming year!
Last but not least, Dr. Raymond Ma Siu-wing, MH has just completed his eight-year term as Chairman of HKCDBA and took over as President with immediate effect. He has successfully motivated all members of the Executive Committee and office staff by contributing to the Association wholeheartedly. Thank you Raymond! Allow me to wish him good health, good luck and much happiness forever. Meanwhile, let’s congratulate the newly Chairman-elect Mr. Arnold Chung Chi-lok to inherit the past and usher in the future.
