We almost had a record-breaking number of entries in the Port Shelter Regatta, with about 40 boats racing on the first two days of October, which might have something to do with the charisma of Bridget—our new Rear Commodore, Sailing. It is a fantastic opening to the sailing season.
We are looking for volunteers to help set up and run some fun kayak racing round the bay—racing from the dinghy slipway around the fairway and out to the cardinal mark and straight back to the bar. These would be timely for Happy Hour with fun prizes on offer, but we need some volunteers to get it up and running. If you are keen please contact me directly on email@example.com
The building of the club boat is going well under the supervision of the working group led by David Hughes. It will be ready by the end of the year and members can start to think about naming the vessel. The General Committee is open to suggestions and there may be a competition to choose a new name for the boat.
C.K. Chan Commodore
The new boat racks are in full operation and we have the benefit of our old parking lot for our cars again. Everyone is welcome to come and enjoy the food and drinks at the clubhouse—we have ample parking available. Members can also enjoy the space of the boatyard which was more like a maze for passers-by in the last two years. More boats can be lifted to be serviced and we shall be expecting improving revenues in the near future because of this. Supported by the Master Plan by ‘MAP Architecture and Planning Ltd.’ and HAB Submission by ‘Executive Counsel Ltd.’, the Club Development Committee will soon take the lead in the modification of lease conditions with which we can then plan the build of new facilities for our club.
我謹代表在會員週年大會上當選的2016－2017年新一屆執行委員會，感謝各位會員 給予我們機會為本會作出貢獻。會員週年大會的出席率非常高，上屆委員會提出的所 有決議都獲得壓倒性支持通過。 牛尾海帆船賽的參賽人數幾乎破了紀錄，有大約40艘船參加了在10月首兩天舉行的賽 事，這可能是因為我們的新任帆船駕駛助理會長Bridget的個人魅力使然。無論如何， 這是新賽季的好開始。 新委員會艇的建造工程在David Hughes領導的工作小組監督下進展良好。新船在今年 年底前將會竣工，各位會員是時候為她改個名字了。執行委員會歡迎大家提出建議， 我們即將舉行新船命名比賽。 新的船架已全面投入服務，舊停車場可以再開放予會員使用。歡迎大家來享用美酒佳 餚，我們現在有充足的車位了。會員們也可以享用船廠的空間，這個空間在過去兩年 對路人來說就像迷宮一樣。我們現在可以為更多船隻提供服，預料收入會因而增加。 得到 MAP Architecture and Planning Ltd. 的總體規劃和 Executive Counsel Ltd. 提交予 民政事務局要求政策支持，會所發展委員會即將修改租賃條件，接下來我們便可以計 劃為本會建造新的設施。

For those of you who are experienced dinghy sailors why not try out our high performance 29er skiffs, these are a lot of fun and we are happy for our instructors to take you out for a quick trial. Our Women on Water sessions will re-start on 11 November for six consecutive weeks. The weather is perfect to experience some fun social sailing. Please book with firstname.lastname@example.org We have lots to look forward to over the coming two months leading up to the festivities of the season. F&B are working hard on some fresh new menu items and promotions with a BIG focus on making it more pleasing for vegetarians and children. Quiz Night is on 18 November, so get swotting. If you are looking for an office party, why not join the ‘Share a Hebe Christmas’ event on 2 December. Live band and traditional Christmas buffet at a cost per head—small budget BIG party atmosphere—fantastic opportunity for your company—catering for small teams looking to avoid the minimum spend. The Hong Kong Welsh Choir will join us for Christmas Carols on 9 December and this year we are having a Children’s Christmas Show (with a very special guest from the North Pole) on 11 December. New Year’s Eve this year will be themed ‘Around the World in 80 Days’ and following the success of the Love Boat event in 2015, this won’t disappoint. Book early for HK$988 members and guests—four courses and free flow, live DJ, midnight countdown with piper! It’s going to be a busy time and we are looking forward to seeing you all support our great events. Boat racks are completed and the club car park is back to normal—don’t forget to get your free weekday lunchtime parking—two hours between 1pm and 3pm. 24小時慈善小船賽2016的準備工作正進行得如火如荼，在此感謝本會的工作人員、 會員、義工、慈善團體、贊助商、合作夥伴和賽事管理團隊的協助，讓活動成事。特 別鳴謝 Paula King 擔當領導24小時慈善小船賽委員會這項艱巨任務，祝願一切順利。 我們現正招募義工協助籌辦皮划艇賽事。參賽者需從球道周邊的小船滑道上起步，到 達標記後再直接回到酒吧，正好趕上歡樂時光和頒獎禮，我們實在需要義工幫忙籌辦 活動。如有興趣，請電郵至gm@hhyc.org.hk與我聯絡。 如果你是有經驗的小船水手，何不試試我們的高性能29er小船？若你有需要，我們的 導師也會帶你一起試驗航行。為期 6 星期的 Women on Water 將於11月11日再次舉 辦，天氣怡人正適合體驗有趣的社交帆行。預約可電郵至sailadmin@hhyc.org.hk。 佳節將至，我們期待在未來兩個月推出更多活動。餐飲部正努力為大家推出新菜單， 並推廣專為素食者和兒童而設的菜式。Quiz Night將於11月18日舉行，快點溫習了！ 若你準備舉行辦公室派對，何不在12月2日參加我們的Share a Hebe Christmas？屆時 會有現場樂隊和傳統聖誕自助餐供應，按人頭收費，對人數不多的團隊來說，這種小 預算大派對無需支付最低消費，是舉辦公司派對的好機會。 香港威爾士合唱團會在12月9日與我們攜手進行聖誕頌歌，12月11日還有兒童聖誕表 演（還有來自北極的特別嘉賓）。今年除夕派對的主題是「80日環遊世界」，去年「 愛船」的成功，相信今年也不會令人失望。會員和賓客預早報名只需988元，包括四 道菜、酒水任飲、現場DJ和倒數活動。接下來將非常繁忙，期待各位支持這些活動。 船架工程告一段落，本會停車場亦回復正常，平日午餐時段（1pm－3pm）有2小時 免費泊車優惠。

The 24 Hour Charity Dinghy Race 2016 preparations are in full swing and I would like to thank club staff, club members and volunteers, charities, sponsors, supporting partners and race teams for all coming together to make this happen. A big thank you to Paula King for taking on the mammoth task of leading the event through the 24 Hour sub-committee and we wish it every success.
On behalf of the new General Committee 2016 – 2017 elected at the AGM, I would like to thank the Membership for giving us the opportunity to contribute to the Club. There was a great turnout and all the resolutions proposed by the last committee were approved with overwhelming support.

Who’s who around the Club? Last issue’s competition winner Well done to
for submitting the winning caption below...
Name: Chelsea Wong Job title: PR & Event Assistant
What Chelsea does at the Club I am the PR & Event Assistant at HHYC. Generally, my duty is to assist in coordinating the events at HHYC and most importantly, making sure the events run smoothly for members and guests to enjoy! I also assist with event promotion—including the graphic design, decoration and photo shoots.
遊艇會內的職責 我是白沙灣遊艇會的公關和活動助理。一般 來說，我的職責是協助統籌白沙灣遊艇會的活 動，而最重要的是確保活動順利進行，讓會員 和賓客盡情享受。我也會協助活動的宣傳工 作，包括平面設計、裝飾和拍照。
What I love most about the Club What I love most about the Club is the working environment and my lovely colleagues. It is wonderful to work at an amazing location next to the sea. The view here helps keep my mind fresh and give me energy every morning. Nothing beats the beautiful Sai Kung sea view!
最愛遊艇會乲之處 我最喜歡關於白沙灣遊艇會的事情，是這兒的 工作環境和可親的同事。在海邊工作確實是一 件很棒的事情。這兒的景色幫助我頭腦清醒， 每天早上都給予我力量。西貢的海景實在是無 敵的！
My life outside the Club I love to travel and capture the moment. Berenice Abbott said, “Photography helps people to see.” Stories are more than what we see if we only focus on a part of the view—there is a story and there is treasure. Therefore, I am a part-time story explorer.
遊艇會外生活 我喜歡到處遊覽和捕捉每個時刻。Berenice Abbott 曾說過：「攝影幫助人們看見。」我 們所看見的東西背後總有個故事，我們不應只 聚焦於部份風景，每件事物背後總有故事和寶 藏。所以，我也是個兼職故事探索者。

Ribeye aluminium tenders super light and strong The new season started with a very busy and tiring schedule. Most of our training took place at Middle Island—leading to long trips in the morning and in the evening. From now on, we are back at Port Shelter and will resume our normal training schedule. The new season also means new people and The Dragons are very happy to welcome two more sailors to their Optimist Squad—Steven Chen and Patrick Feng—both of whom are still sailing under CHN sails but will change to a HKG 3XX very soon.
新一季以繁忙和疲累的訓練日程開始。我們以往大 部份的訓練都在熨波洲進行，所以早上和晚上都要 長途跋涉。從今開始，我們會返回牛尾海受訓，並 回復正常的訓練安排。新一季也象徵了新成員的加 入，Dragons隊歡迎Optimist級別的兩位新成員，分別 是 Steven Chen 和 Patrick Feng，他們現在仍是在CHN 旗下航行，但很快便會改為HKG 3XX。
We sadly have to say goodbye to a few sailors who are retiring from the Optimists to join the Laser Squad, Pei Yip, Pasu Chu and Timothee Bourrut Lacouture. Additionally, Yee Loong Tang joined Antonio Franco and Iain Duncan in the Laser Team. As both fleets are growing, we would like to introduce two of our new team leaders for this season—Christine Lau who will be taking care of the Optimists: email@example.com and Vivio Chan: firstname.lastname@example.org, who will be looking after the Laser team.
另一方面，我們很遺憾要跟Pei Yip、Pasu Chu 和 Timothee Bourrut Lacouture 說再見了，他們將要 由 Optimist 級別轉到 Laser 級別。此外，Yee Loong Tang 也會與 Antonio Franco 和 Iain Duncan 加入 Laser 隊伍。隨着兩支隊伍壯大，我們向大家介紹新 一季的兩位新領隊：Christine Lau 將帶領 Optimists 隊伍（email@example.com），而 Vivio Chan （firstname.lastname@example.org）將帶領Laser隊伍。
Finally, on behalf of the Dragons, we would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year for 2017.

Preparing for a regatta is no easy task—it takes more than a few people and one or two days of preparation—it takes a team of dedicated volunteers months of hard work. Gregoire Bourrut Lacouture shares what it took to organise the HKODA Nationals and how they did it.
32 HEBE JEBES • NOV/DEC 2016
This behind-the-scenes look does not include the enormous amount of work undertaken by the coaches and the transportation of boats to Middle Island as well as HKSF for the allocation and arrangements of the charter boats. It took an army of volunteers and a boatload of work to make the HKODA Nationals so successful.

All race management matters and the website
Fast forward to the end of August—each of us had to coordinate our own tasks with our suppliers, prepare and publish the Notice of Race, request the race permit from the Marine Department, update the website and Facebook, welcome the first entries, coordinate the requests from the overseas coaches (coach boats) and draw up a list of our requirements! On the race management side, Brenda Davies (our Assistant Race Officer) has some great experience in what is required—you wouldn’t be able to imagine the huge amount of equipment needed—from paperclips to horns without forgetting the race flags and the sailors list! As all this was happening, during the weekly sailor’s training, Betty Hui went to all the clubs to prepare a video of our sailors (and coaches) to be projected onto a giant screen at the Gala event—this video can be seen on HKODA’s Facebook page. In September we had weekly meetings with up to 10 people to coordinate the venue, control the entries, write the Sailing Instructions, design the floor map to ensure all boats are properly parked and ensure confirmation of the ribs. We also had to coordinate the delivery of all the supplies to the RHKYC and then to Middle Island. The last meeting—just a week from the event—consisted of checking all the various departments, finalising all the last-minute details and last but not least—allocating duties to all the volunteers to ensure the event ran smoothly. On the social side, the barbecue and flag parade had to be prepared with the choice of menu (as well as the daily lunch for 40+ volunteers); the exact rundown of the evening, the speeches, preparation of the prizes for the lucky draw…the list went on. Di Walters prepared the contents of the sailors’ goody bags.

In May we asked our sponsor, Calamansi Design, to come up with an idea for the poster and flyers to promote the event— not only in Hong Kong, but also overseas. Once printed, our Hong Kong sailors who travelled to the Asians, Worlds, Europeans and other countries over the summer, became our ambassadors and helped with promotion. The target for this year was to get at least six countries to compete.
The day before the race, we all gathered at the RHKYC to prepare the venue together with the RHKYC staff. We had to clear the old hardstand full of Lasers, set up the flag poles, the beach
flags, the stage (and carry it all the way to the lawn), prepare the registration office, race office, prepare all the safety boats, water stations, put stickers on all the boats as well as so much more in order to be ready on time for Saturday morning to welcome the sailors to the 2016 HKODA National and Open Championships.
The Hong Kong Optimist Association is run by volunteers (mostly parents of sailors) who all work during the week. During their free time they devote themselves to deliver the event of the year for the Optimists. Without a club or staff resources, it is basically up to the volunteers and all of the Hong Kong Clubs to get this regatta up and running. The 2016 event held on 8 – 10 October really started in February 2016. At that time, we were in need of a venue—it’s a different one each year and usually, each club will take turns. This year, it was supposed to be ABC’s turn, but for the past few years the growing number of boats has been an issue for clubs hosting the event and they had to regretfully decline. We then asked the next club in line, HHYC, who had to also decline due to the lack of space (note at that time, the lease issue of the Club was not approved and all the boats were on the ground leaving no room for extra boats). As a last resort, we asked RHKYC who accepted despite having other events on that weekend. From then on, our team started the search for sponsors. We teamed up for the third year running with Hong Kong Sailing Federation (HKSF) and the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD), who secured part of the financial support. We could also count on our regular sponsors—Rooster, Far East, Lactel, Valrhona, Fragrant Harbour, Watson’s Water and Calamansi Design.
Finally, the week preceding the event focused mostly on the final details—communication with the sailors and teams as well as preparation and printing of all the forms needed during the race—protest forms, jury forms, competitors list, entries in sailwave, printing of the bow and rear stickers and many other small administrative tasks which take a long time! One of the toughest duties was to transfer all of our equipment from Kellet Island to Middle Island!

SAIL TRAINING CENTRE 你有沒有想過帆船賽有甚麼準備？你是否以為只要幾個工作人 員、用一至兩天的時間便可以準備100艘船出賽？本文會告訴 大家我們是如何為香港樂天帆船公開錦標賽進行準備。 香港OP級帆船協會是由義工運作（大部份是船員的家長）的。 我們都有正職，只能在工餘時間為Optimists船員籌辦活動。由 於欠缺正式的會所或人力資源，籌辦這活動的基本上只有我們 和香港的遊艇會。在2016年10月8至10日舉行的賽事早在2016 年2月已開始籌備。當時我們需決定場地，每年的場地都不同， 通常每間遊艇會都會輪流每五年主辦一次。今年原本輪到香港 仔遊艇會，但由於過去幾年越來越多船隻參賽，令主辦賽事的 遊艇會頗為困擾，遺憾地要婉拒主辦。於是我們要詢問下一個 主辦的遊艇會，即本會，但它也因為地方不足（注意，當時遊 艇會的續租問題仍未解決，所有船隻都存放在陸地上，沒有多 餘空間放置額外的船隻）而婉拒。最後，香港遊艇會答應主辦 賽事，雖然那個周末該會還有其他活動舉行。自此，我們的團 隊開始找贊助商。我們連續第三年跟香港帆船運動總會合作， 並得到康樂及文化事務署提供部份資助。我們也需要依賴長期 贊助商，包括Rooster、Far East、Lactel、Valrhona、Fragrant Harbour、屈臣氏蒸餾水和 Calamansi Design。 5月，我們要求 Calamansi Design 設計海報和單張以在本港及 海外宣傳這項賽事。海報和單張印好後，我們在夏天到亞洲、 歐洲和其他地方參賽的選手就成為了我們的宣傳大使，協助推 廣這項賽事。我們今年的目標是有至少六個國家的隊伍參賽。 主席Elberti Uiterwaal 分配了以下工作給各位成員： Olivia Chan（HKODA秘書） 聯絡 Fragrant Harbour 和本地遊艇會 的雜誌 Vivio Chan（活動） Di Walters

轉眼已到8月尾，我們每人都要與自己的目標供應商協調、 撰寫和公布賽事通告、向海事處申請賽事許可、更新網頁和 Facebook、迎接第一隊報名參賽的隊伍、處理海外隊伍教練的 要求（教練艇）和列出我們的要求！在賽事管理方面，我們的 助理賽事總監Brenda Davies對需求方面有很多經驗，你很難想 像所需物品的數量原來如此多：從萬字夾到汽笛，也別忘了賽 事旗和船員名單！ 就在一切進行得如火如荼之際，在選手進行每周訓練時，Betty Hui都會跑去所有遊艇會，為船員和教練拍攝短片，準備在賽事 期間投影在大屏幕上（這些短片也可以在香港OP級帆船協會的 Facebook 專頁上觀看）。 到了9月，我們每周都會舉行會議，約有10人出席，協調場 地、控制參賽人數、撰寫賽事細則、設計平面圖以確保所有 船隻停泊在適當位置，以及確認橡皮艇的位置。我們也要協 調運送物資到香港遊艇會再到熨波洲的事宜。在賽事舉行前 一星期的最後會議則需要查詢所有涉及的部門和定出最後的 細節。還有一個重要議題，就是編配義工的人手，確保一切 順利進行。 在社交工作方面，燒烤會和持旗巡遊也要準備菜單（還有40多 名義工每日的午餐）、當晚的程序、演講、大抽獎的獎品等， 還有更多。Di Walters負責準備參賽選手的禮品包。 最後，賽事舉行前一星期的工作主要是檢查最後的細節，包 括與船員和隊伍溝通，還有列印賽事期間所需的所有表格 （上訴表格、裁判表格、參賽者名單、輸入Sailwave記錄、 列印船頭和船尾的貼紙和其他很多瑣碎但準備需時的行政工 作！）。其中一項艱巨的工作是把我們的物資由奇力島運送 到熨波洲！ 賽事前一天，我們齊集在香港遊艇會，與該會的員工一起準備 場地。我們需要及時在星期六早上完成清理放滿Lasers的硬地 泊位；架起旗杆、海灘旗、台架（一路帶到草坪）；準備登記 檯和賽事辦公室；準備所有安全船和水上站點；把貼紙貼在所 有船上和許多其他事情，以爭取足夠時間迎接前來參加2016年 香港樂天帆船公開錦標賽的選手。 這個幕後花絮還未計算教練們負責的大量工作，以及他們協助 把船隻移往熨波洲，還有香港帆船運動總會協助安排和分配租 用船隻的工作。

Words Christine Lau 近幾年的香港樂天帆船公開錦標賽越來越有規模，今年有來自 澳洲、中國、印度、澳門、新加坡、台灣和泰國的隊伍參賽。 除了其他香港隊伍之外，白沙灣遊艇會的Dragons隊員也是總 共90名選手的一份子。 今年賽事的天氣跟去年的竟不謀而合（印象中，去年有兩天 賽事因為三號風球而要取消），有颱風正迫近本港。幸好， 首日賽事只是發出了一號戒備信號，而我們一直以手機查看 天文台的消息，直至我們看到：「除非艾利迅速增強或更接 近本港，日間改發三號強風信號的機會不大！」，真是令我 們鬆了一口氣！ 在為期三天的賽事期間，「風先生」不太合作—風勢時大時 小，有時候來個180度轉向，對賽事總監 Charlie Manzoni 和要在 適當航道上航行的選手來說都是一個大挑戰！幸好，每天都可 以完成三場賽事，最後一天金組和銀組賽事都可以進行兩場賽 事（第三場因為沒有風而被迫取消了）。這對我們的選手來說 是一個鍛鍊在帆船賽所學的好機會，特別是在風勢不太理想的 情況下。策略是非常重要的，而且由於出示了U旗（起步後一 分鐘內沒有選手越過起步線），他們未能按預期起步——deep start——即是以右舷的方法從委員會艇前面前往起點。
The HKODA Nationals and Open Championship is an event that has grown massively over the last few years. This year we had Australia, China, India, Macau, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand join the regatta. Apart from the usual Hong Kong teams, our Hebe Dragons were among a total of 90 sailors who competed. It was a coincidence with last year Nationals in terms of weather (for memory, two days were washed out due to a T3) as a typhoon was approaching Hong Kong. Lucky only a T1 signal was in force on the first day and we were constantly checking the Hong Kong Observatory application until we read: “Unless Aere rapidly intensifies or moves closer to Hong Kong, the chance of issuing Strong Signal, No 3 during the day is not high!” It was for sure a big relief for us! During the three days of the regatta, ‘Mr Wind’ was not cooperating—winds were up and down, shifting 180 degrees and it was a big challenge for both the RO, Charlie Manzoni, and the sailors to sail a proper course! Luckily three races were completed each day which led to a proper Gold and Silver Fleet on the last day for two more races (the third one was abandoned due to a ‘dead’ wind). For our sailors, it was a very good opportunity to practise what they had learned during the regatta—especially under ‘not so good’ wind conditions. Tactics were very important and because of the presence of the ‘U’ Flag (no sailors within one minute of the start above the start line), they were not able to do their preferred start—the deep start—which involved coming from the front of the committee boat to the start using a starboard approach. The first day was clearly a challenging one not knowing the level of the overseas sailors besides their reputation of being high-level competitors. This proved to be correct with Australia leading the race. It did not deteriorate—Bincker in the first race who reached 3rd place followed by 18th in the second race. Newcomers to the team, Patrick Feng, clearly impressed too with 16th position in both the first race followed by Steven Chen in 19th in the third race. Keenan also started his Nationals in good position coming 18th in the first race. After a long hot day, all the sailors were happy to go home.

On the second day, a clear sky and sunshine started as early as 7am. Again, another hot day was forecasted but with less wind which could be a handicap for some of our heavier sailors. On the other hand, it proved to be very beneficial for Lumiere who reached 8th position in the last race of the day and became the Dragon leader. He was followed by Bincker with consistent results, as well as Patrick and Stevan (all within 15 – 20th). Gabriel and Sean tried their best to concentrate as much as possible and Sean managed to secure 18th position in the fourth race while it was tougher for our ‘heavy’ sailors Keenan, Carmen, Timothee and Gabriella. Back on shore, all the sailors were in a rush to get dressed for the Flag Parade followed by a barbecue and lucky draw organised by HKODA. As none of our sailors were on the podium, at least Carmen and Bincker won the best prize in the lucky draw which was certainly the most impressive—a twohour ride on a 100 ft racing boat Scallywag. On the last morning of the regatta, one of our sailors told me that the only thing going round and round in his mind was, “I am very tired!”, on endless repeat! He then eagerly repeated a thousand times after the last race, “I want to go home!” The fleet was divided into Gold and Silver for the final races. Lumiere, Patrick, Bincker and Steven were the lucky ones. Again, it was a big advantage for the lighter sailor as the wind was barely 4 – 5 knots. Lumiere managed this lack of wind with a great performance by finishing 12th and 15th in the two races of the day (4th and 3rd within the Hong Kong Sailors). In the silver fleet, Keenan and Sean were leading, with Sean coming 3rd within the Hong Kong sailors in the first race as well as Keenan in the last race of the day. Kudos also to Brian, who managed to squeeze himself into 6th position among the Hong Kong sailors in the first race. At the end of the long weekend, it took a lot—both physically and mentally for the young sailors—but I have to say ‘Well done!’ to our team sailors. I can see a lot of determined, committed sailors with great team spirit.
首天的賽事明顯是一個挑戰，因為不知道海外選手的真正實 力，除了知道他們是高水平的對手之外。後來，澳洲選手領先 就證實了這個看法。但情況其實不太惡劣，Bincker在首場賽事 得到第3名，第二場賽事第18名。新隊員 Patrick Feng 表現也很 出色，首場賽事得到第16名，而 Steven Chen 在第三場得到第 19名。首次參加香港錦標賽的Keenan也造出好成績，首場得到 第18名。渡過了炎熱的一天後，所有選手都很高興可以回家。

第二日賽事，上午7時已見晴天和陽光。再一次，天氣預告這 天也是天氣炎熱但風勢不大，對部份較重的選手來說可能是個 障礙。另一方面，這對Lumiere可能有利，他在當天的最後一場 賽事得到第8名，成為Dragon最好成績的隊員。 Bincker緊隨其 後，其次是 Patrick 和 Stevan（全部在15至20名內）。Gabrie 和 Sean 都盡力專注於比賽，Sean 在第四場賽事得到第18名， 但對較重的隊員，例如Keenan、Carmen、Timothee和Gabriell 來說就較為艱辛。 在岸上，所有選手都趕忙換衣服參加香港OP級帆船協會舉行的 旗手巡遊，還有之後的燒烤派對和大抽獎。即使我們沒有選手 能站上頒獎台，至少Carmen贏得了大抽獎的最佳禮品，就是可 以登上100呎船Scallywag航行兩小時。 帆船賽的最後一天賽事，我們其中一位選手告訴我，他腦 袋裏只有一個念頭不停在轉，就是「我很累！」。然後在 最後一場賽事之後，這個念頭就在他腦中轉了數千次：「 我很想回家！」在最後的賽事，參賽選手分為金組和銀 組。Lumiere、Patrick、Bincker和Steven是幸運兒。再一次， 體重較輕的選手較為有利，因為風勢只有4至5風節。Lumiere 在無風的情況下表現出色，在當天的兩場賽事分別得到第 12名和第15名（香港選手當中是第4名和第3名）。在銀 組，Keenan和Sean領先，Sean第一場賽事在香港選手當中得 到第3名，Keenan也在最後一場賽事取得同樣成績。也恭喜 Brian在第一場賽事香港選手當中取得第6名。 在這個長周末的尾聲，我們的年輕選手已身心疲累，但我要對 所有隊員說：「做得好！」我看到許多有決心、有承擔和團隊 精神的隊員。

UK Optimist National Championship Largs, Scotland
Words Gabriel Ma (HKG 88)
On 31 July 2016, the sun was shining in Largs, Scotland and I was walking excitedly to the venue of the Volvo Gill UK Optimist National Championship 2016. With the wind gently blowing, I was ready for my first race.
I was hiking out and luffing up to balance the boat. Facing the strong winds and the cold weather, I urged myself not to feel defeated. I think this regatta was exhilarating and I know I will be back next year.
On the first day, the winds were 18 knots. I was not accustomed to it since I had little chance to sail under such conditions in Hong Kong. Therefore, I came 81st in my first race. Then things started to change dramatically after my coach, Adam, taught me how to work in the gusts. All of a sudden, I increased my placing from 81st to 40th.
2016年7月31日，蘇格蘭拉格斯陽光普照，我興奮地步行到 2016 Volvo Gill 英國 OP 級全國錦標賽（Volvo Gill UK Optimist National Championship 2016）的比賽場地。在微風吹拂下，我 已為首場賽事準備就緒。
The next day was another amazing day. Even though the wind was blowing stronger, I still managed to place in the top 30 in both races. It was challenging for me trying to cope, but fierce winds were not the only obstacle. The rest of the regatta seemed to go smoothly for all competitors except me. While everyone had a smile beaming across their faces, I capsized my boat because I was over-heeling it. This got everyone talking about who had capsized. I should have felt embarrassed, but instead I thought it was a very useful experience. Capsizing in the freezing-cold water pushed me on to recover as a quickly as possible. The water was so chilly that when I touched it, I started shivering. If it was not for the freezing water, I would not have been able to get back up so quickly. Time travelled very fast during the regatta and soon it was time for me to leave. I kept thinking about the day I saw a seal swimming nearby before launching and all the races that

第一天，風勢有 18 節。由於我在香港很少機會在強風下航行， 所以我不太習慣這種風勢。因此，我在第一場賽事只排第81 位。在教練 Adam 指導我如何應付這種陣風之後，事情有了戲 劇性的變化，我由第 81 位躍升至第 40 位。 翌日也是美好的一天。雖然風勢更加強勁，但我仍成功在兩場 比賽躋身頭 30 位。對我而言，應付強風是一項新挑戰。然而， 強風並不是唯一的障礙。 餘下的賽事對所有選手來說都很順利，除了我。當所有選手都 笑着航行的時候，我因為過度傾側而翻了船。所有人都在談論 誰人翻了船。我本來該感到很尷尬的，但我反而認為這是一次 很有用的經驗。在冰冷的海上翻船迫使我要迅速恢復過來，因 為海水實在太冰冷了，我不停發抖。如果不是冰冷的海水，我 不會這麼有效率地快速回復過來。 比賽時間轉眼過去，我要踏上歸途了。我一直想起那天啟航前 看到一隻海豹在我們身邊游來游去，也想起那天我努力攀上 來，盡力平衡船隻。面對強風和寒冷的天氣，我迫使自己不要 感到挫敗。這個帆船賽實在令人振奮，我明年一定會再來。

香港帆船運動總會青年錦標賽 420及29er級別帆船選拔賽 這次在10月1至2日舉行的賽事由香港帆船運動總會舉辦，吸 引了420和29er級別的頂級選手競逐。比賽場地是蒲台島以西 海域，而賽事的後援基地位於熨波洲的香港遊艇會會會所。這 次帆船賽也是12月奧克蘭第46屆世界青年帆船錦標賽（Youth Sailing World Championships）的選拔賽。 賽事當天早上，香港天文台發出了紅色暴雨警告。賽事總監決 定展開420和29er兩個級別的賽事。他表示，雖然早上天氣惡 劣，但幸好比賽開始時天氣已好轉，賽事順利進行。Norton選 擇在蒲台島以西進行比賽，全因那兒持續有微風。 賽事在8至10風節的風勢下進行，但到了第二場比賽，風勢增 強至12至15風節。選手們乘風破浪，第一日賽事進行了五場比 賽。在29er組別，Calum Gregor和Russell Alysworth在首日賽事 領先。420 級別爭持較為激烈，Siu Ka Chun 和 Tsoi Yat Ming 暫 時領先。
2016 HKSF Youth Championships 420 and 29er Selection Regatta Organised by the Hong Kong Sailing Federation, this regatta attracted the top sailors from the 420 and 29er classes to compete 1 – 2 October. Racing took place on the water west of Po Toi with regatta support based at the Middle Island Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club House. This regatta is also one of the selection events for the 46th Youth Sailing World Championships which will be held in Auckland in December.
The racing proved to be closer on day two with different teams taking race wins. In the end it was Siu Ka Chun and Tsoi Yat Ming who topped the 420 class with six boats. Calum Gregor and Russell Aylsworth won 29er class with 11 boats. Congratulations to all the winners and participants. It was great to see a number of new youth teams and everyone enjoyed the ideal racing conditions.
It was a wet start with a red rainstorm warning signal issued by the Hong Kong Observatory early in the morning. Race Officer, David Norton, started two classes—420 and 29er. He reported that the regatta was very smooth although the weather was bad in the morning, but luckily it turned round and improved when the regatta started. Norton chose the race area west of Po Toi Island for a consistent fresh breeze.
A big thank you—especially to our sponsor Gill and Storm Force Marine Ltd. for the support with the lovely prizes. Also, thank you to the amazing volunteers who made this regatta an exciting, successful and rewarding event.
第二日賽事的天氣預測本來沒有甚麼風，但開賽時Norton很高 興發現賽道有8至12風節的東北風。轉吹北風之後，首場賽事 開始前賽道稍為改變，但後來又轉吹東風，Norton在第一場賽 事中途再改變賽道以適應這個變化。在當天餘下的時間，風勢 較為穩定，只餘下三場賽事，選手都表現出色。
第二日的賽事爭持比較激烈，由不同的隊伍勝出。最終，Siu Ka Chun 和 Tsoi Yat Ming 在 420 級別的六艘船當中勝出，而 Calum Gregor 和 Russell Aylsworth 就在 29er 級別的 11 艘船中 勝出。恭喜所有勝出隊伍和參賽者。我們很高興看到許多新晉 年輕選手參賽，所有人都很享受在理想的情況下比賽。 我在此特別鳴謝贊助商 Gill and Storm Force Marine Ltd. 的獎品， 也感謝所有義工朋友令這次賽事得以順利和成功舉行。 欲知賽果和更多詳情可瀏覽 www.sailing.org.hk 。
Results and more information can be found at www.sailing.org.hk
Racing got underway with 8 to 10 knot winds but by the second race it picked up to 12 to 15 knots. The sailors made the most of the conditions and five races were completed on day one. In the 29er fleet, Calum Gregor and Russell Alysworth were the overnight leaders dominating the racing on day one. In the 420 class the points gap was close, but Siu Ka Chun and Tsoi Yat Ming held the overnight lead. The forecast didn’t promise good winds for day two, but once in the race area, Norton was pleased to find 8 to 12 knots of wind from the north east. A brief shift towards the north led to some course alternations before the first start, but it shifted back towards the east and Norton was able to change the course during the first race to accommodate the shift. After that the breeze was fairly steady for the rest of the day and with only three races left the sailors were back onshore in good time.

Captain Chaos’s Seamanship Skills Class 海員技能課程
HOISTING THE STRONG WIND SIGNAL NO. 3 In 1917 the first numbered signal system geared to the warning of wind conditions in Hong Kong was introduced. In 1956 the No. 3 Strong Wind Signal was introduced and in Hong Kong we are unable to set sail when it is hoisted.
THE PORT SHELTER PIRATE PAGE Words Captain ‘Redscarf’ Chaos
If a typhoon is on the way, the Sail Training Centre Staff need to tie down all our boats to stop them blowing away; so sometimes we have to stop our sailing programmes even though it is still only T1. However, if there is no typhoon and the signal is for a Tropical Depression, we eagerly await its lowering, and set sail in the fantastic winds that the weather brings. Unless you are under primary school age, do not get excited. schools and offices stay open and everyone goes to work as usual!
Ahoy there apprentice pirates!
三號強風信號生效時 1917年，香港首次推出數字系統風暴警報。 1956年，三號強風信號推出。 在香港，我們不可以在三號強風 信號下出海。 如果有颱風迫近，航海訓練中心的職員會把所有船隻綁好，以 免它們被吹走。因此，即使只是發出一號戒備信號，我們都要 停止所有航海訓練。然而，若信號只是因為熱帶低氣壓而不是 颱風，我們會熱切期待信號除下，然後在美妙的風勢下啟航。 除非你就讀小學或以下，否則不要太興奮。學校和辦公室仍然 開放，你們還要如常上班！
Listen carefully while I tell a tale of woe and tragedy. On a dark and stormy night, when the Hong Kong Observatory thought fit to hoist the T3 Signal, I defied the Hebe Haven Yacht Club regulations and set sail. My pitching and rolling vessel crashed through the waves, and struck a semi-submerged rock which I had not perceived upon my navigation charts. Let the lesson be learned, my ship lies wrecked at the bottom of the salty sea. Without a craft my crew have mutinied, and I must entice them back to the high seas with the promise of a better boat. Now to the challenge my faithful friends. I command you to design a ship for my piracy purpose...

唏！所有海盜船員！ 仔細聽我訴說一個悲哀和悲慘的故事。 在一個黑暗和風暴的晚上，當香港天文台預備改發三號強風信號的時候，我無視白沙 灣遊艇會的規例，揚航出海。我那顛簸翻滾的海盜船，在大浪中撞上了一塊沒被導航 圖偵察到的半潛岩石。 汲取教訓吧。 我的船就這樣撞毀了。 沒有船，我的船員便會叛變。我必須找到一艘更好的船來吸引他們返回大海。 我忠誠的朋友，你們的挑戰來了。我命令你們替我設計一艘新的海盜船⋯⋯ Signed this day Captain Chaos

Captain Chaos’s Seamanship Skills Class 海員技能課程 THE BOWLINE
The victorious apprentice will be rewarded by seeing his or her design posted in Hebe Jebes.
This is one of the most useful knots you can learn. It is so important and is sometimes called the ‘King of the Knots’. In 1691, John Smith wrote about the Boling Knot in his work ‘A Sea Grammar’.
The bowline is used to make a loop at the end of a line. The knot tightens under load, but is easy to untie—using a method called ‘breaking the knot.’
At the HHYC STC, we use the bowline knot to:
secure the painters onto the boat in front when we are towing and, fasten the jib halyard to the jib on the Picos.
布林結 這是世上其中一個最有用的繩結。正因為它這麼有用，所以 也被稱為「繩結之王」。在 1691 年，John Smith 在他的著作 《 A Sea Grammar 》裡提也提及了布林結和它的功用。 布林結是在繩索的一端結一個圈。這個繩結在負載下會收緊， 但很容易解開，就是使用「解結」的方法。 在白沙灣遊艇會航海訓練中心，我們使用布林結做以下事情： • 在拖船時把纜繩固定在船頭和 • 把 Picos 的吊臂升降索固定在吊臂

to be lifted again, instead willing the breeze line to come to us. Admitting failure, the anchor was raised hand over hand and we moved on again. Racing finally got under way and the Typhoon Series was underway.
As race officer on day one, I couldn’t have wished for a better team of assistants on the Committee Boat—especially in conditions that were more testing than usual. With the old Frasier Doig Club Boat in new hands, we were spending our racing summer on a chartered junk. With Mikey having done an impressive job of attaching flag rails with cable ties and creating a gun mount built up on a shipping crate—we were all set—what could possibly go wrong? Armed with clipboards, stopwatches, radios and more we headed to ‘the vicinity of Shelter Island.’
Many lessons were learnt that day • The smallest wake makes for a big roll on a junk—and if it's not secured it’s going overboard! • Be careful where you mount the gun—even blanks can set varnish on fire. • Anyone who doesn’t skipper a committee boat regularly cannot mind-read. • A windless is worth its weight in gold for an indecisive Race Officer. • Finally, we have an amazing bunch of people who volunteer their time to be a part of our Race Management Team and I’m sure for them the new club boat can't come soon enough!
The driver stopped the boat and dropped anchor, but the wind just did not come. So we decided to move further out, the engine was fired up and the little old lady of the boat lifted the anchor by hand. As we reached the edge of the island the driver slowed and was asked to stop, he did—and the anchor was dropped. The intention was to see what the breeze was like without the apparent wind created by driving forwards. There was still no breeze, I didn't have the heart to ask for the anchor
The summer continued with some very impressive sailing over a variety of races and conditions. With day prizes awarded at the end of each day's racing, the final prize-giving could double up as a party—a fitting end to a hard fought series!
QUEST YACHTING TYPHOON SERIES 2016 Words Nicole Arnulphy 44 HEBE JEBES • NOV/DEC 2016
Summer 2016 was much like many before in Hong Kong—light fickle breezes, hot sticky air, a race management team hoping for the sea breeze to work its magic and almost 70 boats getting ready to start the Hebe Haven Quest Yachting Typhoon Series!
2016年香港的夏天就如以往一樣，有變幻莫測 的微風和又熱又黏的空氣。賽事管理團隊希望 海風施展它的魔法，讓接近70艘帆船展開白沙 灣遊艇會 Quest Yachting颱風盃帆船賽！
作為首日賽事的賽事總監，我很高興在委員會艇上得到一批非 常得力的助手團隊幫助，尤其是當日有許多挑戰。舊的委員會 艇 Frasier Doig 已易主，我們整個夏天都需要租用船隻作為委 員會艇。Mikey做了一些令人讚嘆的工作，他用電線帶掛起旗 幟，並在一個箱上裝上噴槍。所有事情都準備就緒了，還有甚 麼會出錯呢？帶着記事板、秒錶和無線電機，我們往牛尾洲一 帶進發。 駕駛員停下船隻和拋錨，但是風卻沒有來。因此我們決定向前 進，再次發動引擎，以人手起錨。當我們靠近島嶼的邊緣時， 駕駛員慢下來，後來停下船隻和拋錨。這樣做是要在船隻在停 頓的情況下觀察風勢。但還是沒有風，我也不想再要求起錨， 只是祈求風快點來。承認失敗後，我們再次起錨向前進。最終 賽事得以進行，颱風盃帆船賽展開了。 當天我汲取到的教訓 • 即使最小的尾流也可以令帆船搖晃，如果不安全就由得它 去吧！ • 留意安裝噴槍的位置，即使一個空罐也會令漆油着火。 • 任何不是經常駕駛委員會艇的人士是難以理解的。 • 對一個優柔寡斷的賽事總監來說，一個無風的情況是舉足 輕重的。 • 最後，我們得到一批很棒的義工擔任賽事管理團隊的工 作，我也很肯定他們希望新的委員會艇能快點運抵！ 夏天的其餘時間我們在一些賽事和活動中進行了一些很棒的航 行。每日賽事結束後都會舉行頒獎禮，而總頒獎禮更是一場派 對，為這個系列賽的硬仗劃上完美句號！

Words Brian Heineken
The oldest known lunar calendar dates back to roughly 10,000 years ago. I think it's remarkable how abrupt a change of wind and weather is noticed around this time of year. So it's little wonder our ancient ancestors marked the 15th day of the 8th moon to commemorate the beginning of Autumn. For those of you who have spent a reasonable number of seasons around 22 degrees latitude you'll certainly recognise more north to the strengthening on shore breezes all happening around the time we start to see the moon cakes arriving in local shops and the new monsoon bringing with it a welcome reprieve from the stifling summer heat and humidity. Other obvious clues that Autumn has arrived in Hong Kong is of course the sudden appearance of Ugg boots, mittens, scarves and beanies—all happening precisely the moment the high temperature dips below a frigid 28C. For us cruising boat owners, the new season welcomes the promise of more comfortable overnight anchorages, with cooler nights not requiring the use of a generator and also not having to bother with UV protectant boat covers and typhoon preparation. Perhaps superfluous to mention, replacing all onboard rose wine bottles with red and no longer requiring a table booking at weekend seafood restaurants! Certainly for me, the change of season invites me to reflect on all the fun those fading dog days of summer brought while sailing around Hong Kong. I'd like to share one destination in particular—Lamma Island. Lamma, for one reason or another, seems to be an anchorage we Hebe Haveners rarely venture out to. I found Lamma to be an idyllic Hong Kong boating destination. We recently anchored just off Power Station Beach (approximately 22°13.100’ N 114°070’ E) and found it to be very sheltered from any breeze except southwesterly. The bottom consisted of dense sand which held the anchor securely. Whether the wind and waves favour either route, you can reach the western side of Lamma by going around the south or north side of Hong Kong Island in less than 27 miles charted distance from HHYC. The northern route provides an exciting view through Victoria Harbour, and the southern route offers opportunities for a seafood lunch at Po Toi, ABC and Royal at Middle Island or a stop in Stanley or Aberdeen.
48 HEBE JEBES • NOV/DEC 2016
From Power Station Beach it's a five-to-seven-minute walk to the village of Yung Shue Wan, where we found plenty of shops to reprovision, a lively night scene with ample watering holes and quite interesting and friendly locals. If you're keen for a hike, Lamma offers some of the best, relaxed trekking in Hong Kong. From Yung Shue Wan you can hike a northern loop that takes about three hours at a slower pace. Additionally, at my recommendation, is to hike the well laid out path that connects Sok Kwu Wan and Yung Shue Wan. Along this path you'll find a charming little hotel near Hung Shing Yeh beach that offers a nice tea set or cold beverage and some great views from higher peaks. Less adventurous friends who couldn't make the sailing trip down from Pak Sha Wan can be collected at ferry piers from Central or Aberdeen at Yung Shue Wan, Shek Kok Tsui or Sok Kwu Wan and make the easy walk back to the yacht for the overnight stay. Overall, I found the trip to and from Lamma, the opportunities for fun on the island and the local island mentality to add up to an extremely worthwhile destination.

海底有很高密度的沙，可以牢牢固定船錨。由於風勢和潮浪對任何航線來說 都有利，你可以經香港島的南面或北面前往南丫島的西面，距離白沙灣遊艇 會不足27英里。北面的航線讓你可以飽覽維多利亞港的美景，而南面的航線 則讓你有機會在蒲台島品嚐海鮮午餐，也可以在香港仔遊艇會、香港遊艇會 的熨波洲會所、赤柱或香港仔稍事休息。
If any of this has piqued interest in a group sail to Lamma or other destinations, let's set something up! The Hong Kong COA is a local organisation that has the ability to organise boats from other yacht clubs to meet us there. Email their chairman, Rob Winter at firstname.lastname@example.org or myself at email@example.com. It would be an outstanding weekend to get a bunch of us rafted up for a relaxed overnight off Lamma Island or elsewhere. Let's take advantage of the approaching cooler weather and get out on the water! In other cruising news, a very special thank you to Dave and Jackie Peers who shared their incredible voyage from Hebe Haven to New Zealand in an event hosted at our club. What a truly admirable adventure they had aboard their yacht Brigadoon during a two-year voyage back to their home country. Wishing fair winds to you all.
從發電廠沙灘出發，步行五至七分鐘便會到達榕樹灣。那兒有很多新的商 店、熱鬧的夜市、許多水龍頭，當地居民也相當有趣和友善。 如果你對遠足有興趣，南丫島有許多很棒也很輕鬆的行山徑。從榕樹灣可以 向北環山走，慢慢步行約三小時。此外，我建議大家可以行走連接索罟灣和 榕樹灣一段佈置良好的路徑。沿路你會在洪聖爺灣附近找到一間很吸引的小 酒店，那兒供應精美的下午茶套餐和凍飲，也可以遠晀美景。不敢冒險從白 沙灣航行到南丫島的朋友，可以由中環或香港仔乘坐渡輪到榕樹灣、石角嘴 或索罟灣，然後輕鬆步行到船上過夜。總括而言，我認為來回南丫島的旅 程，以及島上的樂趣和氣氛，都令這片地方成為非常值得一遊的目的地。
1,000 UP AND...MORE ON THE WAY Words Mike and Kay Rawbone
We are delighted to announce that ‘Sailability’ has now had 1,000 people with a disability sail with us. Now with the sign-up of another local school there are a lot more sailors on the way! This number does not take into account those who return repeatedly, these are all new sailors to our various programmes. None of this would have been possible without the support of HHYC; Gen Com, HHYC staff, instructors, safety boat drivers and our excellent and dedicated volunteers. Congratulations and thanks to you all—you have all played a part in this achievement for which you can be justifiably proud. 我們很高興告訴大家，目前已有1000 名殘疾人士參加「航能」，加上再有一 間本地學校加入，將來會有更多船員跟 我們一起航行！這個數目尚未計算再次 回來跟我們一起航行的人士，所有人都 是參加我們不同課程的新船員。 沒有白沙灣遊艇會、執行委員會、遊艇 會的員工、導師、安全船駕駛員和出色 義工的支持，我們不能成事。恭喜及感 謝大家，你們都是這項成就的一分子， 值得驕傲！
如果這燃起你一起航行到南丫島或其他地點的興趣，那就讓我們部署吧!香港船 主協會可以協助組織其他遊艇會的船隻與我們在當地會合。請發電郵予該會的 主席 Rob Winter（firstname.lastname@example.org）或本人（email@example.com） 。跟我們大夥兒在南丫島或其他地方出海和享受輕鬆舒適的夜晚，相信會是一 個美好的周末。 好好把握即將來臨的微涼天氣，跟我們一起出海吧！ 另一則航海消息。我要特別鳴謝 Dave 和 Jackie Peers，他們在本會一項活動上 跟我們分享了從白沙灣遊艇會航行到新西蘭的經歷。他們以 Brigadoon 帆船用 兩年時間返回家鄉的經歷，實在是令人敬佩的冒險歷程。 祝大家一帆風順。

最古老的農曆可以追溯到大約一萬年前。我認為在一年的這個時候注意到風 勢和天氣的變化是多麼突然的事。所以，不難理解為何我們的祖先會把農歷 八月十五標誌為秋天的開始。對於在多個季節都是身處北緯22度的你們來 說，當你開始在商店發現月餅的蹤影時，便會發現岸上的北風已增強，季候 風的來臨也把我們從夏天的炎熱和濕度釋放出來。另一個告訴我們秋天已降 臨香港的景象，當然是突然湧現的靴、手套、圍巾和帽——就在氣溫稍為下 降至攝氏28度時，這些東西便會出現。對於船主而言，新一季意味有更多舒 適的過夜停泊、無需使用發電機的微涼夜晚，也無需顧慮防曬船罩和防颱風 措施。也許談這些是多餘的，但我們還可以把船上所有玫瑰紅酒換上紅酒， 也不再需要預訂周末的海鮮餐廳！當然，對我來說，季節的更替令我回想起 夏天在香港航海的有趣經驗。我特別想跟大家分享一個目的地——南丫島。 南丫島對本會會員來說是一個較少停泊的地方。但我發現南丫島是一個風光 如畫的船隻停泊目的地。我們最近就停泊在發電廠沙灘對開（約為22°13.100’ N 114°070’ E），並發現除了西南風外，那兒亦是個避風的好地方。

I am a water-sports enthusiast and have been sailing and racing since I joined HHYC in 2008 with my 35-foot sailboat, Windseeker. As an active member of the Club, I have served on the Sailing Committee for five years and spent one year on the General Committee. With 20 years experience in IT, during my one-year term as a Gencom member I have chaired an IT Working Group which has helped strengthen our internal IT Team and the IT environment to get our club ready for future growth.

I will continue to promote the core mission of the Club: to provide high quality racing and regatta events for members and I aim to organise activities to introduce racing to new boat owners and members. I will uphold the standards of the Club on race management by organising courses and seminars on race management and racing rules and streamline our race administration through technology and implementation of standard procedures on running races and scoring.
RemCom Remuneration interests
I’m Paul Arkwright. I arrived in Hong Kong in 1992 and people know me from quite diverse areas. Some from my New Song Kindergarten Days—where I was on the Board of Directors, some from CWBS— where I was Co-chair of the PTA and on ComPar, many from HHYC—where I’ve been on GenCom for several years, am Chair of the Sustainability Committee and Publisher of the Club magazine Hebe Jebes; some from knocking on your door with my three kids in tow—trick or treating on Halloween; some from parties onboard my Prima, Clipper II (now sold); and a fair few from sailing on Patrick Yam’s Baby Beluga on which we won the First Beneteau Round the Island a couple of years ago.
With my background in electrical engineering, project management and my extensive experience with local infrastructure projects, I have helped to steer the Club Development Committee in complying with statutory requirements for the Club’s lease renewal during the past two years as the Vice Commodore. My role as the Rear Commodore Sailing for two years has also enriched my understanding of this sport— especially in the area of race management. Whenever I am not taking part in committee work, I am on a sailing boat racing, cruising, making deliveries or helping Sailability sailors on the water.
Chun Keung (CK) CHAN Commodore GenCom
Sailing is now my life. I have made more friends amongst the yacht clubs over the past few years than my 30 plus years as a businessman in Hong Kong.
Paul ARKWRIGHT Honorary Gen. Secretary GenCom
My goals are to enhance the Club’s relationship with neighbouring villages, the Sai Kung Rural Committee and government departments as well as enable the re-provisioning of Club facilities and Infrastructure at HHYC to cope with the growing demands of the Membership.
The Club is about balance—we have a diverse membership from all kinds of backgrounds with all kinds of interests. I’m doing my best to help make the Club as inclusive as possible for everyone: sailors— cruising and racing, power boaters, jet skiers, sailability, SUP-ers, social members, F&B-ers, boat fixerup-ers, beach cleaner-up-ers, young ‘ns, old ‘ns and everyone in between.
I have been involved in the Hebe Haven Yacht Club since 1978, when I started sailing with my parents on their 25-foot cruising boat. I completed my introductory dinghy course through HKSF in 1991, and went on to spend most of my Saturday mornings sailing Toppers around Shelter Cove. About 12 years ago, I did my first yacht race on a Saturday afternoon in Port Shelter aboard the yacht Struan. I have been racing ever since and have had the opportunity to participate in some fantastic racing, including many regattas around the region and a number of off-shore races.
Nicole ARNULPHY Vice Commodore GenCom
I have been a member of the General Committee since 2012 and have served as Rear Commodore of Sailing for the past three years. This elected position involves me working closely with staff and management at our Club to bring the best sailing opportunities for all the members and non-members interested in the sailing. Whilst all sports should be accessible to all people, I thoroughly enjoy my position on the Hong Kong Sailing Federation Council as the HHYC representative. As a member of the Selection Working Party our primary focus is the selection of the best possible team for young sailors to represent Hong Kong and helping the athletes to prepare for this. Hebe Haven Yacht Club has changed a lot over the past four decades, but the Club is still a place to meet people, socialise and go sailing or boating. My aim as Vice Commodore is to bring continuity of vision and institutional knowledge to the Flag Officer Team on the general committee.
52 HEBE JEBES • NOV/DEC 2016
I didn’t know much about the Club when I joined about six years ago—now I have so many great friends here. I didn’t know much about sailing either—my sailing experience was limited to Topper dinghies on Keilder reservoir in the UK—now I’ve crewed on Beneteau Firsts in several Round the Island, Harbour, Typhoon Series and China Cup Races and a bit more dinghy sailing in Hong Kong and China.
I wish to help the Club to have clarity in how we run and organise things, to be well structured, as fair as possible, legally compliant and in the best interests of the Club members. This requires someone like myself who has an excellent knowledge of—and involvement in—club-wide activities, a meticulous eye for detail and legal connections to help ensure compliance.
Ask him to introduce himself when you see him at the Club.

In her ‘spare’ time, Paula is a mother of two teenagers who learned and continue to sail at Hebe, the partner of a yachtie and power boater and the Club Secretary of the Sai Kung Stingrays Rugby Club, where amongst other things she has organised numerous successful events from small gatherings to 500+ people parties. Paula aims to put her management, operational and organisational skills to use behind the scenes, to ensure that operationally we can support, manage and administer sail training opportunities, development and growth with a member-centric focus. This can only be done by ensuring that the Club’s operations are up to date, scalable and sustainable.
Simon ROBERTSON General Committee Member GenCom
I have been a member of Hebe Haven for four years and own and operate a motorboat that is moored at the Club. I am at the Club most days when I am not away flying as a corporate pilot. I have, over the past 25 years, had extensive management experience in club and corporate affairs, having run both casinos and an aviation company. Since joining the Club, my wife has sat on the F&B committee, we have both contributed to the 24-hour race in various capacities and I am a regular volunteer for Sailability.
Andrew BADENHORST General Committee Member GenCom FnBCom
My goal is to see Hebe Haven return to its core values, and for us as members to realise the spirit of those values. I would like to see this returned to a club FOR the members by members, one that members want to go to over other venues, to eat, drink, socialise and most importantly of all, enjoy the boating lifestyle and all that Hebe Haven Yacht club has to offer.

Within six months after leaving the UK for Hong Kong in 1992, I had decided that Hong Kong was the place for me. Over the past 24 years, the Club has been an important part of my family life: my children have grown up here learning how to sail and my son worked as part of the Sail Training Centre team. My wife Karen and I enjoy participating in the Club’s many events.
David HUGHES General Committee Member GenCom
54 HEBE JEBES • NOV/DEC 2016
I came to Hong Kong in 1982 as an Outward Bound Instructor working on their tall ship Ji Fung. From there I moved on to become a marine yacht surveyor. My specialty was heavy lift work, as well as scrutinising for South China Sea races. In the mid-1980’s I took over the sail training at RHKYC Middle Island and established the monthly Sail Training Programme. In the mid 1990’s I set up Clearwater Bay Children Sailing Association here at Hebe Haven and this was the beginning of the Sail Training Programme we now have here today after the Club took over the training about 10 years ago. I have been involved in all aspects of the 24-hour race since its inception. For the past 10 years I have specialised in Health Safety and Security and am now the Global Head for Maersk Logistics (now called Damco). I resided in Australia for four years from 2009 – 2013, where I was an active member of the Brisbane Coast Guards involved in towage and SAR, before returning to live here in Hong Kong where I met my wife Alma.
I moved to Hong Kong from Canada 11 years ago, and it wasn’t long before I discovered sailing in Sai Kung. Sailing in the area now for over 10 years, a member at Hebe in my 4th year, I am motivated to contribute more to the running and development of the Club. I studied Mechanical Engineering in University, but left the vocation behind to pursue my dream of flying for Hong Kong’s flag carrier. Currently, my ‘day job’ is as a 747 Captain with Cathay Pacific. Sai Kung is now home, and living in close proximity to Pak Sha Wan, I am a frequent and regular user of the clubs marine facilities as well as the club house. Active around the club, I consider members of the Hebe community to be amongst my closest friends.
I have been on the General Committee and the Operations Committee since 2013. Over the past year, I have chaired the Working Group responsible for overseeing the design and construction of the new Club boat. The build is progressing beautifully and we hope to take delivery before the end of the year. Now that we have renewed our Government lease, the Club has a great opportunity to improve our marine facilities with new equipment, immediate repairs and improvements to fixed berths and swing moorings. I believe that my background of thirty years in the aircraft engineering industry, combined with my experience as a powerboat owner, would allow me to assist the Club in the Marine Operations department. I also feel that I could greatly contribute to and act as a liaison for our Member’s concerns and suggestions.
This is an exciting time for the Club as we, the membership, have to make decisions on how to move the Club forward and grow in a way that allows the Club to continue to provide the facilities and services to the members, with as little disruption as possible. I would like to continue representing the members as my role as chairperson of the Sailing Committee and as a voice for you on the General Committee.
As the Club grows, and in today’s world we are never far from incidents and issues and I would like to use my skills to build a Health and Safety and Security culture, as well as seeing environmental issues more on the table; to ensure our operations are safe and we are seen to be and are environmentally aware. Lastly, I would like to make this place one that everyone can feel safe and welcomed and a place of relaxation from the pressures we all face in Hong Kong.
In order to do that, I feel we need to tackle issues with a mature outlook without any self serving agendas. People elected by the members to sit on Gencom should be there FOR the members with the best interest of the club and its members at heart. Decisions that need to be made, need to be made timorously so as to serve the best interest of the members. It is my objective to be part of a Gencom that can achieve this in harmony with all departments.
Having joined HHYC in 2010, Eddy was elected to Gen Com in 2015. Holding a Pleasure Vessel Operators Licence Grade 2 and being the owner of a 43' motor boat, Eddy is a typical energetic sports and boating enthusiast who appreciates the desire of Club members to explore and to experience adventure through boating. Eddy is also a motor boat leader and 24hr Charity Dinghy Race Committee Member.
Eddy LO General Committee Member
I have been an active member since joining the Club in 2007. I joined Sailcom as a Committee member in 2012 before being appointed chairperson of the Hebe Have Sailing Centre Committee when the decision was made to separate Big Boat Sailing and Dinghy Sailing into two separate committees mid 2012. I was initially asked to join the General Committee as a representative of the Sailing Centre in late 2012 during a time when the Sailing Centre was undergoing rapid growth. I have been successfully reelected to represent the members since 2013 and continue to be the representative on the GC for the Sailing Centre under the capacity of Chairperson of the Sailing Centre Committee.
I am a yacht owner, as well as an avid and active racer and I am currently serving on two sub-committees, F&B, as well as Sailibility, and am eager to translate that experience, as well as a passion for sailing onto the General Committee level. I wish to help promote and support cruising, racing, as well as the sail training centre.
A member since 2003, Hebe Haven Yacht Club has become an integral part of my life since I returned to Hong Kong from Canada. I have been in the manufacturing and import/export business (gloves and jet skis) for more than 30 years. I also have more than 15 years of technical expertise in both powerboats and jet skis. My company has also sponsored working gloves to the Club for eight years and running and participated in the annual 24hr Charity Dinghy Race held by the Club as well.
Kam Kuen (John) LO General Committee Member GenCom
In 2015, I decided to be more actively engaged in the operational aspects of the Club and joined the F&B and Operations Committees so as to extend my expertise in the well-being and growth of the Club. In the past year, I have enjoyed being in the subcommittee, providing my two-cents worth having learnt the ropes. I sincerely hope to extend my expertise together with the rest of the committee members in the ongoing growth of the Club and to bring it to new heights.

Words Dave Hughes
First site visit
Contract signed with EAC
Construction of the boat begins
Expected delivery date of the boat
Attention club members—the wait is almost over! The eagerly anticipated arrival of a boat to replace the Fraser Doig is imminent. Dave Hughes gives us the rundown from the initial idea to the fantastic end result—all we need now is a name! A replacement for the long serving Fraser Doig is now very close with our new club boat—a 43-foot. flybridge power catamaran, purpose-built for Hebe Haven. The base model is centred on the 2006 Americas Cup power Cat 6 which was also built by East Asia Composites (EAC). Americas Cup 2013
The signing of the contract with EAC 4 February 2016
The working group Finding people to make up the team for the project was plain sailing (pardon the pun). The working group consists of club members with a wonderful blend of skill sets. There’s even an interior designer to add to the wow factor! Richard Lamble of MSES, a marine surveyor, has been tasked with carrying out stage inspections during the whole build process as well as commissioning and licensing of the boat when it arrives in Hong Kong. The project After the idea was born, the wheels started turning in July 2015. We got to look around and get an overview of the EAC factory in Zhuhai, China after our first site visit was arranged in November 2015. The factory is impressive to say the least, with 175 staff working an extraordinary array of machinery in 12,000sqm of operating space. The latest safety extraction systems keep the workers safe and the factory environment clean and you get a sense that everything is highly organised as you walk around. EAC is managed by Paul Scholten and Greg Boiler, both of whom have considerable experience (30 years) in the marine industry. We signed the contract with EAC on the 4 February 2016 and construction of the vessel was underway by March— with regular site visits conducted by the surveyor during construction. Touch wood, so far the reports have been faultless.
Why a power Cat? Making a decision to replace the boat was no easy task— especially deciding on what type of boat would make a suitable replacement. The Operations Committee (OpsCom) faced several challenges when considering available options for replacing the Fraser Doig. To begin with, most of the other new builds were over budget. Secondly, all previously owned boats would have to be modified to suit our club needs and likely to incur increased maintenance costs. The third major factor to consider was stability of the vessel under anchor: passive and active stability
machinery is available—however it is costly to retro fit and almost impossible to find a second-hand boat with one already installed. Construction For those of you who aren’t boat building experts—the boat construction falls into these three major sections: the hull, deck and flybridge. The hull and deck moulds were already in existence, and we got a new mould designed for the flybridge. This was approved by the Naval Architects.

Club Committees were a great help—they became engaged in the project by providing their requirements for our new boat. Most of these suggestions have been included with further improvements proposed by EAC. Despite all this, we managed to keep within the budget approved by the GC. We were very lucky to have an interior designer in the Club, Jennifer Chung, who has provided some excellent colour scheme combinations for the galley, heads and salon.
When will it arrive? We are almost there—the planned delivery date is late December 2016 with the commissioning, inclination tests etc., to be carried out at Hebe. This will include the engine suppliers (John Deere) and navigation equipment suppliers (OBMG). Do not despair— they will also provide training to everyone on how to use the very comprehensive navigation equipment after installation!

NEW CLUB BOAT
造船工序 對不是造船專家的你們來說，造船工程主要分三個部份：船體、甲板和飛橋。船體和甲板的模架是現成的，飛橋的模架則是新設 計，並經海事建築師批核。
各位會員注意——漫長的等待即將結束 了！萬眾期待，取代 Fraser Doig 的委 員會艇即將峻工。由 Dave Hughes 帶我 們回顧新艇最初的意念到完工階段的歷 程——現在就只欠一個名字！ 取代已服務多年的 Fraser Doig 的新委員 會艇即將跟大家見面。這是一艘43呎長 的飛橋動力雙體船，專為白沙灣遊艇會 而設。新委員會艇是以 2006 Americas Cup 動力雙體船6為基本模型，此船同樣 由 East Asia Composites（EAC）造船廠 建造。
工作小組 尋找建造新委員會艇工作小組成員的工作 實在非常容易。工作小組的成員均具有 不同的技能，當中甚至包括一名室內設計 師！MSES的海事測量員Richard Lamble 負責在整個造船過程中進行階段性檢查， 以及船隻抵港後的調試和發牌工作。 工程項目 造船的意念誕生後，我們在2015年7月 正式開動。我們在2015年11月在珠海的 EAC造船廠實地視察。這間船廠令人印象 深刻，廠房面積達到12,000平方米，有 175名員工和精良的機械設備。最新的安 全系統保障工人的安全和廠房環境清潔， 當你四處走動時會感到所有事情都是井井 有條。EAC由Paul Scholten 和 Greg Boiler 主理，兩人都擁有 30 年海洋工業經驗。 我們與 EAC 在 2016 年 2 月簽訂合約， 造船工程在3月展開，而測量員在造船期 間定期進行實地視察。幸運地，至今視 察報告均是無誤的。 為何選擇動力雙體船？ 取代委員會艇不是一件易事，尤其是要選 擇最適合的船隻。海事執行委員會在挑選 取代 Fraser Doig 的船種時面對不少挑戰。 首先，許多新建造的船隻都超出了我們的 預算。第二，所有二手船都需改裝以配合 本會的需要，這可能要支付額外的維修開 支。第三項因素是船隻停泊時的穩定性， 因此需要被動和主動的穩定機械。然而， 這樣會令改造成本高昂，也幾乎不可能找 到一艘已安裝了這類設備的二手船。
62 HEBE JEBES • NOV/DEC 2016
執行委員會在造船過程中幫了很大的忙，他們提 出了對新船的要求。大部份建議都獲得接納，並 由EAC進一步改良。雖然如此，我們仍能維持在 執行委員會訂下的預算範圍內。我們很幸運本會 有一位室內設計師 Jennifer Chung，她為船艙、 客廳和洗手間的色調配搭提出了很棒的意見。 新船何時抵埗？ 即將運抵了！預計交付日期是2016年12月，以 便在白沙灣進行調試和傾斜測試等。這些程序涉 及發動機供應商（John Deere）和導航設備供應 商（OBMG）。完成安裝後，他們將向大家提供 如何使用這些導航設備的培訓！
New club boat name We need help with this! Dust off your thinking caps as a competition will be held to come up with the best ‘new’ name for our club boat. Watch this space! 新委員會艇的名字 我們需要你的幫忙！動動腦筋吧， 我們將會為新的委員會艇舉行命名比賽。 請留意我們的公布。
FOR THE LOVE OF PART 1
The beginning Words Sandra Snell If I had previously believed that I had a passion for ocean yacht racing, then that love affair has been categorically confirmed. My participation in the Clipper 2015/2016 Round-the-World Race was an experience in complete sensory overload, beginning with the gruelling preparation and ending in total exhilaration and inspiration. In late June 2015, the seed was planted. For many years I had enviously watched professional sailors, both male and female, taking to the oceans of the world to race; and for me it was a dream which was not ever likely to happen at a professional level. I had heard about Clipper, knew of people who had taken part and I had raced here in Hong Kong with a teammate who had circumnavigated the world in a previous Clipper race. Even then, it didn’t cross my personal radar screen until my husband, Nigel, suggested I apply for the 2015/2016 race. Despite initially dismissing it as slightly unrealistic, given work and home commitments; and a race start only about eight weeks away, I admit to taking a peek online to get an idea of the prerequisites required, the training schedule and the race course. Clipper provide options of competing in the full circumnavigation— involving eight race legs around the globe—or any number of (or combination of) race legs. Leg 4 immediately jumped out and grabbed me and didn’t let go! This leg was going to include the annual Sydney to Hobart yacht race. This is considered one of the top three ocean races in the world, alongside the Fastnet and Bermuda races; and had long been on my list of races to complete. Additionally, there was a Roaring Forties/Southern Ocean experience and a long sail up the east coast of Australia from Tasmania to Airlie Beach in the Whitsunday Islands. Three very different race experiences all parcelled up in Leg 4—sold! I was quite aware that the preparation and racing were going to require a much higher level of physical fitness beyond the basics I already had and that ended up being an understatement! I decided I would need to target the biggies—aerobic fitness as well as endurance and strength. As I was quite a late entry, I had to accelerate my training which started with an intensive programme of running, push-ups and weights—all overseen by my coach who also happened to be my husband—what was I thinking? As I was being prodded from behind to run faster up the hills of Sai Kung with the threat of more penalty push-ups at the top, I was definitely not pondering the longer-term benefits. My thoughts and mutterings were distinctly ‘R’ rated and I think there might have been the odd rude hand gesture in there as well. Nigel had clearly read far too many SAS training manuals. However, I did have cause to be extremely grateful when I started my four weeks of practical training on the boat, as the penalty push-ups well and truly paid off.
64 HEBE JEBES • NOV/DEC 2016
I had the choice of completing my mandatory four-week intensive Clipper training programme either in the October chill and grey of the Solent and UK west coast or the October spring sunshine of Sydney Harbour and east coast Australia. Tough decision, but I chose the latter! Those four weeks were my first taste of what was to follow and I did conclude that this would not be for everyone. Firstly, I could see this was going to be a major social experiment. Being confined to a 70-foot long capsule (only half of which was habitable), with between 18 and 20 people from widely diverse backgrounds who you have never met; and whom all have well-ingrained patterns of behaviour—was going to require an enormous degree of patience and tolerance. Add to the mix an extreme level of discomfort, complete lack of privacy, questionable dietary intake, minimal sleep and the need to be focused on safety and racing skills during all waking moments. There was no question that the race itself would require some personal ‘digging deep’ and it didn’t disappoint. Completing a seemingly endless amount of Clipper paperwork was another preparatory challenge I had not really considered. Aside from the arduous application process and interview, there followed medicals, insurance applications and keeping track of specific crew information which seemed to spew from my computer daily. It all felt relentless at the time and was partly due
to my late entry. I didn’t have time to research all the boats, their sponsors and skippers in order to submit a personal request to be allocated to a specific boat. While offering no guarantees, Clipper will consider specific requests from individuals who are wanting to race on a boat of their choice. Clipper’s mandate is to crew boats as fairly as possible with an even spread of skill levels, ages and genders. I was allocated to a boat which was sponsored by the city of Da Nang in Vietnam who had taken up the sponsorship to increase their tourism profile. The upshot of this was also the constant supply of the most divine coffee in the world brought to us by Vietnamese ambassadors whenever we were in port. My skipper was to be an Australian lady; another potential challenge for me. I routinely raced with guys and I wondered what this change would be like. Wendy (or Wendo as she was fondly known) was a well-known Sydney sailor with already eight Sydney to Hobart races to her credit and 2015 would be her ninth. I felt this could only be a good thing as Wendo would surely have an enormous amount of local knowledge of east coast Australia sailing, so I had the feeling we may have a good chance in the race of my dreams.

如果我曾經相信我對海洋帆船賽事充滿 激情，那麼這場戀愛已確切地得到證實 了。我參與2015/2016克利伯環球帆船 賽（Clipper 2015/2016 Round-the-World Race）的經驗，從艱苦的準備開始以至充 滿歡樂和啟發的終結，實在是超越了情感 的負荷。

considerable planning, especially as weight was restricted and storage space amounted to a minuscule cubbyhole which also needed to accommodate the bag that held the gear! There was an abundance of information on the crew website from past voyagers and subsequently many varying opinions on the effectiveness of the gear they had chosen—did waterproof socks, gloves and hats really work or did they not? Such were the debates. One consistent piece of advice though was the effectiveness of merino wool thermals and that, I can attest, was the most valuable and reliable of all. Go to sleep damp in merino wool thermals and wake up toasty warm and dry, miraculous! Which brings me to sleeping bags. I chose an ocean sleepwear bag which came highly recommended and it didn’t disappoint. It was lined with an amazing polar-fleece type material which also miraculously dried—compliments of the sleep fairies. Crawling into my sleeping bag wet on most occasions made these additions to the kit very valuable. The outer layer of the sleeping bag was waterproof, which was another bonus, as it totally protected me from the frequent spray of ice cold Antarctic water that made its way down the companionway and onto my nearby bunk. If I had been circumnavigating then I would have invested in a dry-suit, which I didn’t. In hindsight, my experience would have been considerably drier and a little less ‘weather challenged’ if I had had a dry-suit for both the Southern Ocean and Sydney/ Hobart races. Clipper issued all crew with a set of branded Henri Lloyd gear, including heavy duty foul weather pants and jacket, along with a lighter weight spray jacket and wind proof jacket, all great quality gear. We needed to personally source any remaining gear. Reflecting on the effectiveness of my foul weather gear though, I have to say that with the exception of a dry-suit, no gear (regardless of quality) would have kept me dry with the continual drenching from waves and rain. My somewhat aged but trusty boots had always kept my feet snug and dry but once again it only took a few wave soakings to render them not so trusty anymore. I did succumb to the marketing hype of waterproof socks and in their defence, they were very effective in the short term, however it wasn’t long before they too were soaked. Again, merino socks as the base layer came to the rescue, with dry feet when I woke up. It was tough to then slide my feet back into cold, sodden wet boots again! Such was the wet feet desperation at one point that I resorted to sliding my feet into plastic bags before putting on my boots. Meeting up with my would-be team mates for the first time in Albany, in the very south west corner of Western Australia, was slightly intimidating. I had not met or trained with any of my

fellow sailors and I was not sure what to expect. Some had already completed the first three legs of the race, London to Rio de Janeiro, Rio to Cape Town and Cape Town to Albany. The latter of which is pronounced ‘Al-bany', by the way. After being chastised on numerous occasions by proud locals for pronouncing it ‘All-bany', I did eventually get it. There were only three new joiners for Leg 4, of which I was one. Understandably, it must be difficult for those who have already bonded as a group and who have faced some tough conditions together to keep an open mind about the inclusion of new crew who they also know nothing about. I felt it was really important to respect this while getting to know people’s backgrounds and sailing ability as quickly as possible. Equally important to me though was having the confidence to assert myself and fill the roles I felt I was capable of achieving and beyond! I went into this race with a set of goals and objectives for the development of sailing skills and personal challenge and I wanted to walk away feeling I had fulfilled those objectives.

雖然事情開始時有點超現實的感覺，加上我還有工作和家庭的責 任，但是賽事在大約八星期後就要展開了，我不得不快快在網上 看看參賽條件、培訓計劃和比賽路線。克利伯讓選手選擇完成環 遊世界的賽事：在全球多個地點進行八個賽程；或任何數目和組 合的賽事。第四個賽程立即跳入我的眼簾，我一定要參加！這場 賽事是包括一年一度的悉尼至霍巴特帆船賽。這場由勞力士贊助 的賽事與Fastnet和百慕大帆船賽被譽為世界三大帆船賽，一直 是我夢寐以求參加的賽事。此外，賽事還包括四十度哮風帶／南 部海洋（Roaring Forties / Southern Ocean）的航行體驗以及由塔 斯馬尼亞出發，航行澳洲東岸至聖靈群島的艾爾利海灘的長途航 行。三個不同體驗的賽事都集中在第四個賽程！ 我曾擔心準備工作和賽事要求的體能水平較我基本具有的水平 更高，結果我完全低估了！我決定加強有氧健身、耐力和力量 的訓練。由於我遲了報名，所以我需要加快訓練進度，進行由 我的教練兼丈夫全權主理：密集的跑步、掌上壓和舉重。噢， 我是怎樣想的？當我一直被後面催促快點跑上西貢的山頭，否 則要在山頂面對掌上壓的懲罰時，我絕對沒有想過原來長遠來 說這些訓練對我是有利的。當時我的想法和語氣明顯是屬於 「兒童不宜」的級別，還可能夾雜了一些無禮的手勢。Nigel實 在看得太多SAS訓練手冊了。然而，當我展開在船上的四星期 訓練時，我實在萬分感激，因為掌上壓的懲罰是值得付出的。 我可以選擇為期四星期的密集克利伯訓練課程地點，分別是10 月在寒冷的索倫和英國西岸進行，或是10月在春天陽光充沛的 悉尼港和澳洲東岸進行。這是一個艱難的抉擇，我最終選擇了 後者。在這四個星期裏，我初嚐了滋味，也明白到不是人人都 可以做得到的。首先，這是一個重要的社交實驗。停駐在一艘 70呎的船上（只有一半面積是可居住的），船上有18至20個 來自不同背景的陌生人，而他們都有着根深蒂固的行為模式， 實在需要很大程度的耐性和容忍力。更不用提極端的不舒適水 平、完全沒有私隱可言、頗有問題的飲食、有限的睡眠和清醒 時要專注於安全和航行技巧。毫無疑問，這個比賽本身需要一 些個人的修為，而這沒有人令人失望。
68 HEBE JEBES • NOV/DEC 2016
需要完成數不清的克利伯文書工作是另一項我沒有考慮到的挑 戰。除了嚴謹的申請過程和面試，還有進行健康檢查、申請保 險和記錄幾乎每天從我的電腦吐出來的船員資料。這一切都令 人感到殘酷無情，只能怪我這麼遲才報名。我沒有時間搜尋所 有船隻、贊助人和船長的資料，因此不能申請分配往指定船 隻。雖然不能保證滿足需求，但克利伯也會考慮個別人士要求 在選擇的帆船上航行。克利伯的使命是盡可能公平地根據技術 水平、年齡和性別來分配船員。我被分配到一艘由越南峴港 贊助的帆船，而贊助的目的是推廣當地的旅遊業。結果每當我 們到達港口時，越南大使便會向我們供應世界上最神聖的咖 啡。我的船長是一名澳洲女士，而這是我面對的另一個挑戰。 我通常都是跟男士一起比賽的，我很想知道這個變化會是怎樣 的。Wendy（或Wendo，人們都是這樣叫她的）是位知名的悉 尼船員，她已參加過八次悉尼至霍巴特帆船賽，而2015年的賽 事是她第九次參賽。我感到這是一件好事，因為 Wendo肯定有 很多關於澳洲東岸航行的本土知識，所以我覺得很大機會可以 進行我的夢想航行。
如果我曾經航行環遊世界，我可能會買一套乾式潛水衣，但我 沒有。事後看來，如果我有帶備乾式潛水衣航行南部海洋和悉 尼/霍巴特賽事，相信我會較為乾爽，也會較少面對天氣的挑 戰。克利伯給每位船員派發一套Henri Lloyd裝備，包括重型除 污褲和夾克，還有輕身的防水夾克和防風衣，全部質地良好。 我們要自己準備其餘的裝備。檢討我的惡劣天氣裝備的效用 時，我不得不說，除了乾式潛水衣之外，沒有裝備（不管質 量）能令我在持續的海浪和雨水襲擊下保持乾爽。我那有點老 舊但可靠的靴子總是讓我的腳緊貼和乾爽，但再一次，只要有
幾個海浪打過來，它便沒那麼可靠了。我曾屈從於營銷炒作的 防水襪的保護，它們在短期內非常有效，但是，它們被浸濕後 效用也不能持久了。 再次，以羊毛襪做底層產生了效用，我醒來時腳是乾的。只是 要把腳伸進又冷又濕的靴子內實在有難度! 於是我決定先把腳 套上膠袋，然後才穿上靴子。 我跟準隊友在西澳洲西南部的奧爾巴尼首次見面，當時情況稍 為令人擔心。我從未與我的隊友見面或一起訓練，所以我有 點無所適從。部份隊友已完成了首三個賽程，分別是倫敦至 里約熱內盧、里約熱內盧至開普敦，以及開普敦至奧爾巴尼 的賽程。順帶一提，後者的發音應該是‘Al-bany'。我本來是 讀‘All-bany'的，但被驕傲的當地人多次咒罵之後，我終於學 懂了正確發音。第四個賽程只有三個新加盟船員，我是其中之 一。可以理解的是，對於那些早已經團結起來，並且面對過一 些艱巨狀況的船員來說，對於有一些他們一無所知的新船員加 入，一定很難保持開放的心態。我覺得我要尊重他們的想法， 同時也要盡快了解船員的背景和航行技能。同樣重要的是，我 要對自己有信心，我才能擔當我認為自己能勝任的角色。 我是 帶着鍛鍊航海技巧和自我挑戰等目標來參賽的，我希望能實現 目標，昂然踏步。 待續⋯⋯

準備工作的挑戰排山倒海而來，要挑選合適的裝備也不是易 事。我將要在寒冷以至酷熱的天氣狀況下比賽，這需要周詳的 計劃，尤其是船上有重量限制，而且儲物空間只是一個相當小 的四方格，還要容納裝着裝備的袋子。船員網站上有大量來自 以往航海者的資訊，他們對裝備的效用都有很多不同的意見， 例如防水襪、手套和帽子是否真的有用？等等不同的討論。只 有一個意見是一致的，就是推介美麗諾羊毛的保暖程度。我可 以證明這是最有價值和最可靠的資訊。穿上美麗諾羊毛在潮濕 的環境中睡覺，醒來的時候很溫暖和乾爽，真是神奇！接下來 我要挑選睡袋。我選擇了一個獲高度推介的海洋睡衣包，它確 實沒有令我失望。它的內襯是一種很棒的極地羊毛物料，同樣 是出奇地乾爽——得到睡精靈的讚美。我常常會濕漉漉地爬進 睡袋中，這些物料令這個裝備非常有價值。睡袋的外層是防水 的，而這也是它的優點，因為它可以保護我免受由通道濺到雙 層床上的冰冷南極海水弄濕。

Ban the bottle and
Words Stu Pryke
Every member can do their bit to help reduce plastic waste and it all starts with swapping from a water bottle to a water butt. As Hebe progresses further towards eliminating single and shortuse plastics, the recent Pak Sha Wan beach clean up—seven beaches in seven hours which is a new summit for the Club— allowed us to trial eight Coleman 12-litre water butts. These are heavy-duty PVC, multiple use (over a thousand cycles) water containers with a top loading lid and a conventional style tap. In a continuation of the trial, I am asking club members to really make a concerted effort to use these containers instead of buying litre/1.5 litre water bottles that invariably see a single use and end up in the Hebe skips. Our landfills and local beaches are littered with Bonaqua, Watson and Evian water bottles and, as we are now well aware, these bottles break down in just over half a millennium to bead size and yep—straight into the food stream— assuming we have any fish left in the oceans by then. We are already seeing Yellowfin tuna synthesising plastics and passing these on, ostensibly, to us. This is real people so I implore you to sign these water butts out. If eight is a low figure, we can increase the number of containers to suit. You can find them behind the garden bar—it’s a chit sign-off and if you lose one, then pick up the tab at cost—they're really versatile. Use them also for white wine, ice instead of bags, iced tea and anything that won't leave a residue or stain. The J80's, race events and even Bahia sailing—there's always room for one of these little guys and at the end of the day, YOU have made a difference. End the single-use plastic era and focus on reuse, recycle and re-think! The ‘last straw’ saw the end to plastic straws, ‘Have you lost the bottle?’ is our next move to lose the single-use plastic bottle so endemic both here and around the Asia basin—we can make a difference!

自從白沙灣遊艇會進一步禁止使用用完即棄或短期使用的塑 料，我們在最近一次的清潔白沙灣海灘活動中（我們在短短 七小時內清潔了七個海灘，是本會的一項紀錄）試用了八個 Coleman 12公升水桶。這些以重型PVC製造的可多次使用（超 過一千個使用週期）水桶，頂部有蓋和傳統的水龍頭。 在試用期間，我要求會員們一起使用這些水桶，不要再使 用那些1.5公升的水樽了，因為它們被使用一次之後便會 被拋進白沙灣的垃圾桶。我們的堆填區和海灘上都佈滿了 Bonaqua、Watson和Evian的膠水樽，而我們現在都知道，這 些膠樽要花超過半個世紀才可以分解成為顆粒般的大小，再 進入食物流，如果當時海上仍然有魚的話。我們已經看到黃 鰭吞拿魚與塑料合成，再被我們吃掉，進入人體。這是千真 萬確的，所以我懇請大家改用水桶。如果八個太少，我們可 以增加數量。你可以在花園酒吧後面找到這些水桶，那裏有 張便條讓你簽署，如果不見了，只需按成本付款，我們是可 以隨機應變的。

tonnes of rubbish removed from the beaches
The green stuff As far as plastics entering the ocean are concerned, roughly 20% comes from ships and offshore platforms, while the majority originates from litter being blown into the sea, picked up by tides on the beach, or intentional dumping of rubbish in the sea. This not only makes our beaches look horrible, it also poses serious threats to animal and human health. Firstly, plastics don't biodegrade quickly, but rather break up into small pieces that are consumed by fish and sea mammals. Eating or getting entangled in plastics is estimated to kill more than 100,000 sea turtles and birds every year. Secondly, even if not directly eaten, plastics contain dangerous chemicals that are slowly released into the waters and the atmosphere. As fish breath to get oxygen from the sea, they also absorb these chemicals which end up further contaminating them. As we catch these fish for food this contamination ends up back in the human food chain. We end up literally eating our own rubbish.

plastic bottles and cans collected on the day
In one day we estimated that we collected 28,800 plastic bottles and aluminium cans—saving them from going back into the sea and preventing them from entering the food chain. We left those seven beaches free of litter and plastic. Trails The litter doesn’t just end up in the sea—a lot is washed down from hiking trails during heavy rain or blown off the mountains into the sea during strong monsoons and typhoons.

Volunteers who took boats out to help clean up beaches that day
Sunshine, blue skies, warm weather and bags of energy all came into play on Saturday 24 September at this year’s Clean Pak Sha Wan Day. It was a beautiful day to spend outdoors and 160 community volunteers and club members gave up their free time to benefit the local community at the event to clean up local beaches, raise environmental awareness and instil sustainability values in tomorrow’s sea users (aka kids). The event attracted young and old who were given a safety briefing, rubbish bags, rakes, sieves and wicker baskets before being sent off, after donning PFDs, via ribs to clean up seven beaches around Pak Sha Wan and Port Shelter. Anja also led a mini hike to help clean up the trail, which goes form Millionaire’s Row (near Lion’s Nature Reserve) over to the beach on the other side of Ma Lam Wat (opposite Kiu Tsui).
Environmental gurus share We had the environmental big guns in on the day too to share their advice on what people can do on a day-today basis to help keep the seas clean. The Eco guests this year included Paul Zimmerman, CEO, Designing Hong Kong and Tracy Reid, CEO Plastic Free Seas, who also kindly presented prizes to our competition winners on the day while sharing their environmental messages about reuse, reduce and recycle.
Rubbish artwork The kids got a chance to get creative by constructing some amazing pieces of artwork out of recyclables. The children not only got to use their imaginations but went home with a message for mums, dads and caregivers—don’t throw anything away if we can reuse or recycle it. Fro

清潔海灘 我們收集到許多奇奇怪怪 的東西—從常見的膠樽以至 被我們稱為「笨重」的大貨 車車胎。
SUSTAINABILITY 乾 淨 之地 由災 區變 成
環保小通識 大約20%進入海洋的塑膠是來自船隻和離岸的浮台，其餘大部份都是 吹到海上，由潮浪沖上海灘，或是被故意傾倒在海上的。這些情況不 單令我們的海灘變得很難看，也嚴重危害動物和人類的健康。首先， 塑膠不會迅速生物降解，而是分解成顆粒，被魚類和海洋哺乳類動物 吃掉。估計每年有100,000隻海龜和雀鳥因為吃了塑膠或被塑膠纏繞 而死亡。第二，即使不是直接吃進肚子，塑膠含有的危險化學物 會慢慢釋放到水中和大氣之中。魚類在海中吸入氧氣，牠們同時 吸入這些化學物，令牠們進一步受到污染。當我們捕捉這些魚 作為食物時，這些污染最終回到人類的食物鏈。換句說話， 我們吃掉自己的垃圾。
陽光、藍天、溫暖的天氣加上充沛的活力，為9月24日（星期六）舉行的2016清潔 白沙灣日活動揭開序幕。那天是戶外活動的好日子，160位社區義工和會員獻出 他們的時間惠澤社群，協助清潔區內的沙灘、喚起公眾的環保意識，並把可持續 發展的概念灌輸給未來的海洋使用者（即是小孩子）。這次活動吸引了男女老 幼參與其中，他們出發前先聽取簡介，並獲發垃圾袋、耙、篩和籃子，穿上 浮水衣之後，便乘坐充氣艇前往白沙灣和牛尾海一帶 共七個沙灘進行清潔。Anja還帶領一隊小隊清潔遠 足徑，從 Millionaire’s Row（近獅子會自然教育中 心）經過海灘至另一邊的麻籃笏（橋咀對面）。
環保人士分享 我們當日還邀請到環保專家來講解如何從日常生活中着手，保持海洋 清潔。今年的環保嘉賓包括創建香港（Designing Hong Kong）行政總 裁司馬文（Paul Zimmerman）和無塑海洋（Plastic Free Seas）行政總 裁Tracy Reid。他們頒獎予比賽的勝出者，還分享了關於循環再用、減 少和回收的訊息。
義工們今年從海灘收集到破記錄的垃圾：總 共有2.4噸。這個重量等於一輛半汽車！大部 份垃圾都是可循環再用的塑膠和鋁罐，它們都 已分類，準備送往回收。 我們估計一天內已收集了28,800個膠樽和鋁罐，令 它們不會回到海上，也不會進入食物鏈。我們已令到 七個海灘再沒有垃圾和塑膠了。
遠足徑 其實垃圾不單在海上出現，有許多垃圾是在大雨期間從 山上的遠足徑沖下來，或被強烈季候風或颱風吹襲時 吹到海上。 垃圾藝術品 小孩子有機會利用回收的物件創作令人讚嘆 的藝術品。孩子們不單運用他們的豐富想像 力，還可以把訊息帶給爸媽和照顧者：不 要棄掉可以再用或回收的東西。
感謝所有參與清潔白沙灣日的人士，是你們令 活動得以成功。這些人士包括：160位清 潔海灘的人士、員工、義工和航能的 成員；本會的管理層和職員——感 謝他們的支持；本會的公關人 員——感謝他們協助宣傳這個活 動；海事辦公室的人員——協 助安排充氣艇和舵手；白沙灣 遊艇會餐飲部；我們的環保冠 軍，Hong Kong Photography Studio；我們的DJ；最後，要 感謝可持續發展委員會的所有 成員——感謝你們一年來為本會 的可持續發展作出努力，以及籌辦 清潔白沙灣日。多謝大家！
我們可如何伸出援手？ 再用 • 攜帶—不要買—可再用的袋購 物。如果你忘了帶環保袋，寧 願索取一個紙箱，因為紙箱要 分解只需兩個月，但塑膠要10 至100年才可以分解。 • 使用可再用的水樽。
回收 • 塑膠永遠要回收—我們在白沙 灣遊艇會都有伸出援手—你可 以在舢舨樓梯和斜坡到浮橋的 路上看到加設的回收點。
減少 • 避免購買塑膠包裝的產品，特別是 有很多層那種。 • 當超級市場的收銀員自動把已預先 包裝的食物放進另一個膠袋時—即 使你已說了不用膠袋—你要說不。 你可以想想你回家後會怎樣處理這 些膠袋？ • 不要亂拋垃圾。在這方面，漁農自 然護理署做得好，在偏遠的遠足 徑不再擺放垃圾桶，這個措施似乎 有成效。以往堆滿垃圾的垃圾桶， 現在只剩下沒有垃圾的青草地，還 有一個牌子寫着「自己垃圾自己帶 走」。 • 拾起你看見的垃圾，隨後的過路人 通常不會把垃圾拋在清潔的地方。

Sai Kung Hung Shing festival Words CK Chan
HHYC was invited to attend the Po Toi O village event, which was part of Sai Kung’s celebrations for the Hung Shing Festival. The festival is important in local culture, especially for sailors and fisherman. According to legend, worshipped God Hung Shing (God of the South Sea) was highly knowledgeable in astronomy and geography and aided merchants and fishermen with his ability to read the weather and avoid dangers at sea. The proceedings started with a fantastic seafood lunch hosted by the fishing village at the famous Fai Kee Seafood Restaurant. The event was a colourful mixture of dancing dragons and lions as well as opera singers, which delighted the audience from the magnificent temporary stage. Fire crackers and temple visits were also in abundance as villagers gave thanks to Hung Shing for keeping them safe. The event was attended by KC Choi, District Lands Officer, Sai Kung, CK Chan (HHYC Commodore), Lisa Keatley (HHYC GM) and Samantha Carrington and Summer Ng from the HHYC PR & Marketing Team.

SHATIN JUNIOR POLICE CALL 沙田少年警訊
Words Eddy Lo
Nicole Arnulphy Vice Commodore
After three years working with Sailcom as Rear Commodore of Sailing it was time to hand it over to Bridget who I am sure, together with the best Sailing Committee any Rear Commodore could wish for, will do an amazing job. My new role as Vice Commodore sees me looking at the whole club and enhancing HHYC as a place for families, sailors and staff. With that in mind, and also to preserve our liquor licence, the general committee together with the General Manager are empowering the staff to refuse to serve alcohol to anyone who appears intoxicated. We are also increasingly concerned that staff may be subject to unpleasant behaviour when trying to comply with their duty.
On 1 October, Eddy Lo hosted a local community event and invited the Junior Police Call to take a look around their club. Before taking the guests out to sea, Bridget Chan, Rear Commodore Sailing, and Cramond Wong, Rear Commodore Operations, gave a tour of the keelboat and club facilities and the Sai Kung Marine Police gave everyone a short but important briefing on the topic of sea safety. Eddy would like to thank Commodore CK Chan, our Rear Commodores and committee members John Lo and Paula King for giving their support on the day.
Staff have also been instructed to refuse service to persons deemed to be inebriated or whose behaviour is considered to be below the standard expected at the Club. A printed card may be shown to members concerned to convey this message and that they are authorised by management to ask a person(s) to leave the premises.
十月一日，喜氣歡騰的國慶日，機船工作小組的我很高興能統 籌及邀請少年警訊到本會參觀。透過我們的助理會長（航海） 陳玉蓮小姐，助理會長（海事）黃耀祥先生及西貢分區水警的 介紹，令來賓對帆船比賽，本會設施及海上安全更加了解。很 高興能將社區工作與船會連繫一起，而且能令來賓享受一個愉 快的假日。再次多謝我們陳振強會長，兩位助理會長及新上任 的執委會委員盧錦權先生及Paula King女士鼎力協助。
The General Committee ask for the cooperation of all members to uphold the standards of civility, friendship and fun—characteristic of our club. Any person who remonstrates or refuses to comply with such instructions issued by club staff members, General Committee members or Flag Officers will be the subject of a disciplinary hearing by the General Committee and members should be aware that in most cases, this will result in an immediate suspension of some, or all of the membership privileges for that person. Members are also reminded that they will be liable for the behaviour of their guest(s).
The card reads: “To comply with the Club’s legal duty as a holder of a liquor licence, we regret to advise you that we are unable to continue to serve alcohol to you today. If you have any questions regarding this please refer to the General Manager.”

我的新角色是副會長，將會負責管理整個會所，並加強白沙灣遊艇會作為家庭、船員 和工作人員相聚的好地方。考慮到這一點，而且為了保留我們的酒牌，執行委員會與 總經理一起賦予工作人員權力，拒絕向任何醉酒的人士提供酒類飲品。我們也關注到 有部份工作人員在履行職務，拒絕售賣酒類飲品予醉酒人士時，受到不友善的對待。 我們的員工獲指示可拒絕向醉酒人士或行為被視為低於本會預期標準的人士提供服務。 職員會向涉事會員出示一張卡，表示獲管理層賦予權力要求有關會員離開該場所。 卡上寫道： 「本會為遵守作為酒牌持有人的法律責任，我們遺憾地通知閣下，今天不能再為閣下 提供酒類飲品。如閣下對此有任何疑問，請與總經理聯絡。」 執行委員會呼籲所有會員合作，維持本會文明、友愛和歡樂的特點。任何表示抗議或 拒絕遵守這些由本會職員、執行委員會或旗官作出的指示的人士，將要接受執行委 員會的紀律聆訊，可能會導致該名人士的部份或所有會員權利被即時終止。

I would like to express my appreciation to the members who voted for me as the Rear Commodore—Operations this year. I will do my best to serve in the best interests of the Club. I have received letters from members raising concerns about boats overstaying in the south pontoon, security and illegal mooring. The Operations Committee has discussed organising a member workshop as soon as possible. Starting from October, we will have full-time security on the south pontoon during weekends to remind users to stick to the two-hour limit. If you happen to spot any boats which do not belong to our members please report it to security. We recently had an incident where we had to call the Marine Department to locate a boat owner so they could move their boat. With the completion of boat racks, most of the boats have been put back onto the racks and our car park is back to normal. Just a friendly reminder to our members to make sure they do not park their car in the boatyard without permission from marine staff. Our club is working on a project to accommodate more boats with our existing moorings, and we had a very good meeting with the Marine Department at the end of September who gave us the green light to test a ‘landing platform’ for two boats. The landing platform is under construction in Zhuhai and we expect to start testing in early 2017. Wishing you all a great Christmas and New Year for 2017!
我要向所有投票支持我出任今年執行助理會長的會員致以衷心感謝，我會竭盡所能為 本會謀求福祉。 我收到一些會員的來信，表達對一些船隻在南浮橋過夜停泊，以及保安和非法泊船的 關注。海事執行委員會已討論盡快舉辦會員工作坊。 由10月開始，我們會於周末在南浮橋派駐全職保安員，提醒使用者遵守兩小時的時 限。如果你發現不屬於我們會員的船隻，請通知保安員。最近發生了一宗事故，導致 我們要通知海事處尋找船主移走船隻。
Having sat on the sailing committee for five years and spending one year on the general committee, I am delighted to be able to serve as your new Rear Commodore Sailing. I really appreciate the excellent job my predecessors, the members sitting on the current sailing committee and the working teams have achieved—all have freely given their time and expertise to support the Club in yacht racing and cruising activities. In the coming year, we will continue to focus on promoting yacht racing and cruising to boat owners and members and encourage them to participate or to volunteer to enjoy the fun of sailing. If you would like to know more about yacht racing and cruising, or want to become a volunteer—please get in touch via email: email@example.com. My first event as Rear Commodore Sailing was the Sails East Port Shelter Regatta 2016, held on 1 – 2 of October. It was a tremendous success with the highest turnout of boats ever seen for this Regatta. We got 42 boats on the water! Thank you to Eric Tomter, the race officer, and all of the volunteers and staff who took part in this event. Finally, the Sin Fung Winter Saturday Series 2016 has just kicked off. Looking forward to seeing you on the water!
我已分別在帆船駕駛委員會和執行委員會服務了五年和一年，我很高興可以擔任帆船 駕駛助理會長，繼續為大家服務。我非常感謝前任和現任帆船駕駛委員會委員的出色 工作，他們付出了時間和專長支持本會的帆船和航海活動。 未來一年，我們會繼續專注於向船主和會員推廣帆船運動和航海活動，並鼓勵他們參 與和享受航海的樂趣，或成為義工。如果你想知道更多關於帆船運動和航海活動的詳 情或如何成為義工，請發電郵到 firstname.lastname@example.org 與我們聯絡。 作為帆船駕駛助理會長，我的第一個活動是在10月1至2日舉行的 Sails East 牛尾海 帆船賽2016（Sails East Port Shelter Regatta 2016）。這次賽事非常成功，參賽的 帆船數目破了歷屆紀錄，總共有42艘帆船參加！感謝賽事總監 Eric Tomter 和所有為 這次賽事出力的義工和工作人員。 當這一期雜誌發行之時，先鋒冬季周六系列賽2016已展開。我很期待在海上與大家 見面！
隨着船架工程完成，差不多所有船已放回船架，我們的停車場已回復正常使用。我在 此提醒各位會員，在未得到海事辦公室同事的許可前，不可在船架範圍泊車。我們在 9月底與海事處舉行了一次會議，該處允許我們測試兩艘船的「登船平台」。登船平 台正在珠海建造，預計2017年初可以試驗。 祝大家聖誕快樂，新年進步！

Help keep our harbour clean—report marine littering •
• Marine Facilities
We have finished regular checking of usage of the mooring/pontoon and hardstanding. A friendly reminder that any member replacing his/her existing craft must submit a written application and obtain approval in writing from the Marine office BEFORE the replacement craft is placed on any Club Marine Facility. Members are not allowed to change their craft more than twice in a one year period. Members selling any craft on a Club Swing Mooring, Pontoon Berth or Hardstanding are responsible for notifying the Marine office within seven days of the sale and ensuring that the craft is removed from the Marine facility within two weeks of the transfer of ownership. If the craft is not removed within the two week period the General Committee may take whatever action it considers necessary and any expenses so incurred will be charged to the Member(s) concerned. If any Swing Mooring, Pontoon Berths or Hardstanding space is vacant for one week or longer, the Member to whom the space is allocated must notify the Marine Manager. The Marine Manager, at his sole discretion, may temporarily allocate such vacant Marine facilities to any other Member or to a member of a club with reciprocal rights.
Sampan We would like to take the opportunity to remind all members that The Operations Committee has received numerous complaints regarding the use of the Sampan outside the designated vessel mooring area. The Committee has therefore decided that the Sampan will only take members to the Club, RHKYC and private moorings in the area to the North of the Pak Shan Wan Public Pier. We would like to remind the membership about a regulation in effect since 1 August 2013, which stipulates the sampans cannot take members to or from Shelter Cove Pontoons or to Hong Kong Marina. RHKYC members who wish to go to the RHKYC Pontoons should use the white RHKYC sampans. • Sampan users must sign the usage record. • The sampan operator will ask members or boat crew to show their membership card if needed.
Car park Members will be charged $24 per hour should they not present their membership card on arrival in the car park and they must enter the car park by signing chits. There is no guest parking on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays.
