    Asia Yacht Press (AYP) has done it again! After a long period of Covid-delayed gestation, AYP are delighted to announce the arrival of a second edition of ‘Cruising Hong Kong’. “We sold out of the first edition, and were still getting enquiries” said Guy Nowell, “so we did it all over again!”

    Cruising Hong Kong is a lavishly illustrated voyage around the coastlines, bays, anchorages, and even water-accessible restaurants of Hong Kong. It’s v1.2, not vNew. It’s not a pilot – it doesn’t claim to be that detailed or comprehensive (although there have been suggestions…). It’s an informative cruise around the truly beautiful Hong Kong coastline, with a smidgen of history and some highly scenic geology thrown in, as well as information on charts, safety, local rules and regulations, speed limits, fuel docks and a great deal more.

    "Cruising Hong Kong will fill a gaping hole in any Hong Kong boating enthusiast’s bookshelf. Whilst it is true that this is a visual treat (Guy Nowell is not only a yachting photographer of some renown, but also a keen sailor with an intimate knowledge of Hong Kong's waters), this is much more than a coffee table publication. The team at Asia Yacht Press must be congratulated for producing a work that both inspires and informs. The book is packed with practical information and as such is a "must have" for anyone remotely interested in boating in Hong Kong." (Roger Eastham, former Marine Manager, Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club).

    In a pocket-sized space, Hong Kong offers some of the most wonderful cruising grounds imaginable, and you’re never far from anywhere, even if it feels like it. The city is always just around the corner, but easily forgotten. This is truly ‘world-class water’. If you know, and have forgotten, you need Cruising Hong Kong. If you are new here and want to explore, you need Cruising Hong Kong. And if you have never cruised Hong Kong, you are missing out. Pay a visit: we have the guide.

    A must for every boat’s saloon, bridge, or wheelhouse: HK$460 (US$59) plus p+p.

    Copies can be ordered direct from Asia Yacht Press guy.nowell@asiayachtpress.com or online at www.guynowell.com or www.asiayachtpress.com

    Please find the Secretary for Development's response for HKBIA's Industry Report :


    香港特別行政區政府發展局回覆如下:

    於七月十九日收到之行業報告書. 本局己跟”躍動港島南辨事處(IISO)”協調及一併回覆.

    謝謝分享該報告書. 其導出香港優閒遊艇工業近況資料及具前瞻性. 所關心事項亦為海事處之工作範籌, 明白此報告書巳與該部門分享.

    政府於2020年施政報告中提及其一重要發展項目為活化南區,以開發及擴建香港仔避風塘範圍, 增加船隻停泊區及陸上設施以配合需要. IISO現正與海港工程, 土木工程拓展署共同研究技術上可行之策略, 深入了解及加速進行制定初步工程設計項目. IISO同時亦與政府跨部門合作以增加土地設施及勾劃發展鴨利洲海旁活動空間, 包括龍舟存放區用以推廣水上友誼文化.

    觀塘避風塘方面, 政府明白仍需永久給予本港各類船艇平日於不尋常天氣底下棲息之用. 因此可能局部限制設計成為遊艇停泊專用區. 我們相信海事處會發表該部門對此看法. 在 閣下建議篇幅8.2中提及發展各類水上運動和水上康樂活動, 正與我們介紹及提昇香港水上友誼活動之決心接軌. 例如, 本局已準許多個水上運動組織於官塘避風塘用地以作陸上支援活動之用. 相信 閣下對政府提議在石澳石礦場復修後興建水上綜合運動中心有著濃厚興趣. 詳情可於網上溜覽於2021年七月八日遞交南區議會文件.

    背境

    香港由一小漁村開始發展至現有濃厚海洋歷史及文化.皆因其海洋根源, 海外線與地理環境有助香港發展成為亞洲重要自由港,經濟中心及航運樞紐.而現在,更具備相應之機遇讓香港進一步發展成為亞洲優閒遊艇市場領導者.

    香港四面環海,各離島及沿海水域均為海上遊樂及水上活動的上佳地理環境、基礎及條件。.

    各項挑戰

    業界所面臨挑戰己列表於「香港優閒遊艇工業報告」第三階段陳述,其中主要挑戰如下:

    1. 避風停泊區極端缺乏。
    2. 可接觸水上活動之相關基建和運輸交通不足。
    3. 現有「人群聚集及社交距離法例」下, [優閒遊艇租賃]與[派對房間] 應屬不同分類, 加以明確劃分.

    建議解決方案.

    我們歡迎政府對行業之幫助與支持, 對行業發展,社交,經濟以至環保均有裨益.

    政府幫助建議列表於”政府如何幫助業界第八項”中陳述.

    其中主要解決方案包括:

    本會致力提昇行業安全,倡議持續發展及推廣優閒遊艇活動。香港己非只建基航運及漁業上, 其優秀海港實為城市脈搏, 應使海洋優閒活動廷伸至仍未發展之領域.

    Lantau Yacht Club (“LYC / Club”) is pleased to roll out the first yachtcation package for yachting aficionados this summer. In the most popular yachting season of the year, yachting lovers are now offered a rare opportunity to try out the new state-of-the-art LYC marina and our premium service at our exclusive Club.

    The number of pleasure yachts in Hong Kong saw impressive growth since the pandemic outbreak – the number of pleasure vessels increased by over 580 in 2020 alone and more locals are getting into yachting. Pleasure yachts are now considered a private and safe space away from the crowd, and where people can spend quality time with friends and family.

    “LYC is excited to launch the first-ever yachtcation package offered by yacht clubs in Hong Kong. With the recent travel restrictions, many people who used to spend weeks on their yachts overseas during summer now enjoy yachting in Hong Kong. This is a great opportunity for them to explore different yachting locations, especially the western and southern waters of Hong Kong. While berthed at LYC, yacht owners can also enjoy all the offerings Discovery Bay can provide, such as beach fun at Tai Pak Beach or the leisurely ambience with a drink at the alfresco dining hub D’Deck,” said Ms Charlotte Ho, Director of Hospitality Marketing and Membership of Auberge Hospitality, the hospitality arm of Hong Kong Resort Co. Ltd.

    The LYC Yachtcation Package includes ONE night wet berthing in our Marina, with four-course dinner for TWO and complimentary sparkling wine at Caffè Napoli in LYC, and two complimentary transfers within Discovery Bay. The package prices vary according to size of yachts and choices of menus. Visitors can also book a spa treatment at Spa Botanica of Auberge Discovery Bay Hong Kong at a special rate of 15% off.

    In fact, LYC has been receiving a number of Visiting Members who spoke highly of the facilities and quality of the Marina as well as the impeccable service of our staff.

    “It's the best marina in Hong Kong with excellent facilities and supportive staff. Its location also offers the convenience to sail around Lantau where I can stay active in the great waters year round,” said Mr. Metz who brought his boat to LYC for multiple times.

    "I really appreciate the efficiency and friendliness of the front desk staff who got out of their way to take care of the members. We especially enjoyed the serene and peaceful atmosphere at LYC,” commented Ms. Bernadette who came with her family for a couple of times.

    LYC Yachtcation Packages from HK$2,200, including:

    • 1 Overnight Wet Berthing with Complimentary WIFI

    • 4-Course Dinner for 2 Plus Complimentary Sparkling Wine at Caffè Napoli

    • Free Use of Tennis Courts, with Shower Facilities Available

    • 15% Off on Spa Treatments & the Best Available Room Rate at the Seaside Resort Hotel, Auberge Discovery Bay Hong Kong

    • 2 Complimentary Transfers within Discovery Bay

    • Discovery Bay DIY Tour with DB Shopping Directory and Hiking Guidebook Provided

    FOUNTAINE PAJOT GROUP

    Fountaine Pajot group is extremely glad to join the active Hong Kong Boat Association and become an equally active member in all aspects promoted by the association. Being one of the world leading group in yacht production, we hope that Fountaine Pajot group will bring extra power toward its designated goals.

    Fountaine Pajot has witnessed the ever-growing demand for boating in the region but also the various hurdles all yards are facing to penetrate the markets, especially in Hong Kong where mooring and berthing availability are now paramount to success. We seek to offer our support to the whole industry and of course to gain visibility through the association for both our sailing range (Dufour Yacht) and our catamaran one (Fountaine Pajot). Being a member of Hong Kong Boating Industry Association is the next obvious move for the group.

    We deeply thank the association for its work and our new membership that we will celebrate in style soon.
