All ribs will be provided by the LOA. Local licensing laws in Hong Kong require one person on each RIB to hold a local “Pleasure Vessel Operating Licence”. The organizing authority will attempt to assist overseas coaches to find persons who can be on board to satisfy this requirement if necessary.

For PVOL holder, please contact us directly so we can designate you as the official coxswain.

Two coaches will share one boat. (USD 1,600 / boat)
