Junk Outing (Organized by Allen & Overy)

“If you never see their rugged coastlines or deserted coves, and if you are never buffeted by the salty sea wind as it blows full pelt across a surging prow, then you will not know very much of Hong Kong at all.” – TIME magazine

JunkBoat

Join us for some sea, fun and sun and a classical Hong Kong experience aboard the Sea-Quester, a  “junk” (the term formerly applied to traditional Chinese fishing boats now refers to any motorized pleasure vessel). We will cruise the coastline and anchor on the South Side to cheer on the Dragon Boat racers while enjoying food, drinks and waterskiing behind the speed boat that will accompany us. The whole outing should last 5 hours and we’ll have you back in Central at approximately 3 pm with lunch and drinks provided. The junk is organized by alumnus David Cameron and sponsored by his firm Allen & Overy.

Cost: US$20 per person
Date: Sunday, June 25
