About the Event
The Hong Kong Dragon Run will feature two races for surf skis and OCs: the “normal” long course race and the out-and-back short course race. In conjunction with these, a short and long course race for SUPs will take on a new focus with more than US$20,000 in cash prizes for the top three men’s and women’s spots.
Conditions at this time of the year in Hong Kong are great for paddling. The North East monsoon – the prevailing wind at that time of the year in this part of the world – should provide for some excellent down-wind paddling conditions.
If the prevailing winds blow, the proposed race course should consist of mainly down-wind paddling. If “normal” conditions prevail, we would expect a steady NE wind and waist/chest high swell through the down-wind sections.
Water temperatures will be around 23 degrees Celsius, with air temperature between 18 and 27 degrees.
