THE HONG KONG KAYAK AND RUN WAS held on Septem­ber 2 in Deep Wa­ter Bay with the usual fam­ily and adult races. This year, this was pref­aced by chil­dren from Hong Chi Winifred Mary Che­ung Morn­inghope School be­ing taken out in kayaks by ex­pe­ri­enced in­struc­tors for short try-out races. All the chil­dren seemed to en­joy the out­door ex­pe­ri­ence and the rare taste of na­ture saw lots of smile-filled faces, sat­is­fy­ing the or­gan­iser and its part­ner char­ity, Ac­tion Asia Foun­da­tion. In the com­petive rac­ing, Joseluis Alve­lais and Ro­main De­mare of team In­vaders grabbed the win ahead of Team Uglow, with Langkawi in third in the Adult race. “The race was chal­leng­ing and amaz­ing over­all. Ro­main [De­mare] has been push­ing me all the way and the re­sult is great. We are a good team!” said Alve­lais af­ter­wards.
