Welcome to the Hong Kong Island Paddle Club website!


We are a competitive paddle club that races dragon boats and outrigger canoes. We are the only club that offers the opportunity to paddle year-round in both dragon boats and outrigger canoes. Our home is in Deep Water Bay at the Victoria Recreation Club - the oldest sporting club in Hong Kong.

HKIPC was initially founded as a dragon boat club in 1993, when a group of enthusiastic and committed paddlers decided that they could gain more success and have more fun in competition by forming their own team than by joining others. As a racing paddling club, our objective is to raise the standard of dragon boat and outrigger paddling among our members, and to improve overall personal and crew performance.

Today HKIPC has more than 100 members from over 15 countries. Our club's fleet has expanded over the years to include two dragon boats, three six-person ocean canoes (OC6s), and a flotilla of OC1s, OC2s and surfskis.

We compete in array of exciting races in Hong Kong and overseas. Many of our local events involve marathon excursions to outer islands and exhibition races. We cross international waters by paddling from Hong Kong to Macau, participate in the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club's "Around The Island Race" and host our own Deep Water Bay regatta and outrigger races. Our annual international itinerary includes major races in Micronesia, Hawaii, and Australia.

Hong Kong's paddling culture is very much rooted in dragon boating, and our success as an outrigger club relies on our interest in and respect for local paddling traditions. Our reputation has extended to the tourism industry in Hong Kong and we are often asked to carry out dragon boat workshops as team-building exercises during incentive tours or world and regional conferences. These workshops are often quoted as being the highlight of our clients' visit to Hong Kong.

 

The Hong Kong Island Paddle Club is proud to announce that the 11th Deep Water Bay Dragon Boat Races on 9th May 2010 was the first Carbon Neutral dragon boat race in the world. With the innovative partnership of Carbon Care Asia, a low carbon solutions specialist, this event was also Hong Kong's first carbon neutral sports event.
