Dragon boat race held in Japan to celebrate HKSAR 25th anniversary

The commemorative Hong Kong Cup dragon boat race to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the HKSAR was held at the promenade of Yamashita Park in Yokohama, Japan on Sunday.
The championship went to "Yokohama Surf Bathers", which beat 14 teams in the race, and was presented with the Hong Kong Cup trophy by the Deputy Hong Kong Economic and Trade Representative (Tokyo), Andrew Fan.

The Yokohama Dragon Boat Races, which have been held since 1994, attracted about 90 teams this year to compete in the two-day event on Saturday and Sunday. The commemorative Hong Kong Cup race, sponsored by the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in Tokyo (HKETO), was one of the highlights.

The HKETO also set up a booth at the race venue to provide information about Hong Kong to park visitors and race spectators. The HKETO aims to promote cultural exchanges between Hong Kong and Japan as well as enhance Japanese people's understanding of Hong Kong through participating in the event.

The commemorative Hong Kong Cup race was one of a series of events in Japan to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the HKSAR.
