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。

另外,由尖沙咀海濱長廊遷移到中環舉行之2016年香港國際龍舟邀請賽已經40週年,今年的比賽及嘉年華於中環舉行,雖然天公不做美,但仍然吸引不少來自世界各地的龍舟愛好者到臨,熱鬧非常。相信各位龍舟迷都急不及待,盼望來年賽事比今年更精彩、期待屆時再與大家見面,見證各隊伍的「龍爭虎鬥」!

最後,本會能夠於過去八年一直穩步上揚,不斷進步,全賴主席馬兆榮醫生及一眾委員的功勞。剛完成本會八年任期、退下前線工作並即時接替本人擔任會長一職的馬醫生過去多年來的無私付出及貢獻絕非三言兩語所能形容,本人藉此機會代表中國香港龍舟總會仝人及一班龍舟愛好者衷心感謝馬醫生,並祝事事順利。同時亦祝賀新一屆主席鍾志樂先生承先啟後,帶領總會再創高峰。
 

 

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.

今年是中國香港龍舟總會25週年銀禧誌慶,本會特意籌備了大型慶典活動「香港龍舟年」,一連串的活動於二月份正式展開,當中包括於荷里活廣場舉辦的「揮槳廿五載  擊鼓創未來」龍舟展覽及第六屆室內龍舟錦標賽。精彩節目一浪接一浪,當然少不了有各大型比賽,包括第2屆香港大專龍舟錦標賽、Young Post第7屆香港學界龍舟錦標賽、精工表第十八屆香港龍舟錦標賽等等。

本會一直以來以承傳龍舟運動文化及培育新一代龍舟健兒為首要工作。今年,本會更向前誇進一大步,大力推動傷健共融,於2016年10月16日成功舉辦有史以來首個以慈善形式進行的「第七屆長途龍舟錦標賽」,為香港傷殘青年協會籌款,協助有需要的年青人重建自信、建立社群網絡,提升工作技能及就業機會。本會是次活動所籌得的善款超過35萬港元,而所有善款不扣除行政費用全數捐贈香港傷殘青年協會,如此有意義的活動,一眾參加者實在功不可沒!一班龍舟愛好者除了藉此以龍會友外,更可以做善事,實在十分值得紀念。

2016香港國際龍舟邀請賽亦踏入40週年,透過與香港旅遊發展局的緊密合作,來自15個國家及地區、約4,000名健兒在「建行(亞洲)香港國際龍舟邀請賽」划槳競渡,岸上萬人歡呼喝采,成功為本地及海外龍舟健兒舉辦一個既精彩緊張又難忘的狂歡派對。

中國香港龍舟總會於過去25年的努力能獲得大家的認可,我謹在此感謝民政事務局,康樂及文化事務署,中國香港體育協會暨奧林匹克委員會,及香港旅遊發展局的長期支持。而一眾的贊助商,各屬會及龍舟愛好者當然更功不可沒。我們對各方各界多年來的支持和參與表示最深切的謝意,並承諾為大家帶來更多更好的25年!

Hong Kong China Dragon Boat Association presented a series of celebratory events entitled “Hong Kong Year of Dragon Boating” to celebrate its 25th Anniversary.  The first celebration activity was the “25 Years of Commitment; Empowered to Excel” Dragon Boat Exhibition cum 6th Hong Kong Indoor Dragon Boat Championships. Apart from one celebration activity after another, we also organized competitive and joyful competitions such as “Young Post 7th Inter-school Dragon Boat Championships”, “SEIKO 18th Hong Kong Dragon Boat Championships” etc. 

Aiming at passing on this cultural water sport from one generation to another, training and nurturing new generation on the sport of dragon boating is a top priority within our association.  This year, the Association has further promoted dragon boating to the handicapped youths by organizing the 7th Hong Kong Long Distance Dragon Boat Championships (Charitable Fundraising).  Participating teams have fund raised a total of HK$350,000 for the Hong Kong Federation of Handicapped Youth (HKFHY) with the aim of promoting the spirit of self-help through advocating equal opportunities and developing rehabilitation services as well as helping the disabled to fully integrate, participate and contribute to the society. I would like to thank you all who made it happen, we truly could not have done it without your full commitment!

 

2016 is also the 40th Anniversary of Hong Kong International Dragon Boat Races. Working closely with the Hong Kong Tourism Board, over 4000 participants from 15 countries participated in the race. This tense yet exciting race program in conjunction with a fun and memorable carnival not only inspired me a lot but also gave us an extraordinary experience.  I look forward to seeing you again in the Hong Kong International Dragon Boat Races 2017! 

We could not have made the 25 years of commitment without the continuous support and guidance from the Home Affairs Bureau, Leisure and Cultural Services Department, Sports Federation & Olympic Committee of Hong Kong, China, Hong Kong Tourism Board, sponsors, affiliate clubs, members and the dragon boat community. We would like to express our deepest gratitude to all the organizations and individuals who have contributed to the sports of dragon-boating. We hope to serve you even better in many more 25 years!
