Kung Hei Fat Choi
It has been a challenging start to the year of the Rat! As a result of the outbreak of the Novel Coronavirus (2019-NCOV) our second speakers’ event in February has been postponed, but the Association did manage to have an excellent tour of the IDEC Sport Maxi-Trimaran skippered by Francis Joyon in January, and Dr Lindsay Porter, who spoke on Hong Kong’s Dolphins and Porpoise, was our first presenter for the Speakers Event which was held in December 2019.
The ICOMIA Congress which was planned for Zhuhai in May is another event that is been affected by travel restrictions and will be held instead in Italy. Therefore, the planned ICOMIA/IMG HK Marina Tour has also been cancelled. We hope there will be another occasion or event in the near future which ICOMIA will be back in Asia.
Best wishes for the Year of the Rat!
鼠年尹始正面對一個極具挑戰性的開端。由於新型冠狀病毒（2019-nCoV）爆發的疫情，我們已決定將原本計劃在2月舉行的第二場講坐及分享活動改期。有幸在1月期間，本會成功舉辨了IDEC Sport Maxi三體帆船與Francis Joyon同行之旅的參觀和簡介活動，以及在2019年12月期間本會舉辦的第一場由Lindsay Porter博士介紹香港中華白海豚及寬吻海豚生態講座及分亨活動。
