OPB Sailing team takes on the Hebe Haven 24hrs Race 2018 奮進行動風帆隊參與白沙灣遊艇會24小時慈善小艇賽2018

Hebe Haven 24hrs Charity Sailing race 2018 has come to an end last weekend.

Weather was perfect throughout the 2-day event, sunny and breezy.

It was an intense back and for 24hrs race, with 35 boats on the sea competing at the same time. Every lap, corner and change-over was so precise.

We started at 10th at overall and 3rd in our category. With consistent team effort, we climbed up to 8th & 2nd accordingly by Day 2 morning.

With 4 hours to go, there was a little accident, our rudder was broken and the boat was pulled back to the dock.

There was some ground to be made after the repairing. Team OpB fought very hard. At the end, we finished at 9th overall.

While we know, it is not all about result that we care. This event is also an opportunity for Re-union. Every year, we had numbers of former OpB participants, volunteers, instructors brought their families and friends dropped by and showed support.

We are not just proud of the skills our sailing team has showcased, also the true meaning of sports, “EFFORT” “TEAMWORK” & “FRIENDSHIP”.

白沙灣遊艇會24小時慈善小艇賽2018於上星期完滿結束。

天公造美,兩天的賽事在風和日麗,微風和煦之下完成。參加比賽的小艇共三十五艘,一同進行了二十四小時的激烈競賽,每一個圈、每一個彎及每一次換人時均恰到好處。

比賽開始時,我們在所參加的項目中排行第三,全場排行第十。在次日上午,憑著各隊員的努力,我們攀升至項目中的第二名,全場緊守第八名。

在賽事尚有四小時便結束之際,卻發生了一宗小意外,我們的方向舵出現故障,無奈小艇要被拖回碼頭。

經搶修後,奮進行動風帆隊需要努力追上,而隊員亦奮勇到底,最終以第九名完成比賽。

當然了,我們並非只著眼於比賽結果,這項比賽亦為我們帶來聚首的機會呢!每一年,奮進行動風帆隊的前隊員、志願者及教練都帶著家人朋友到來打氣,給予我們莫大的支持。

為我隊的高超技術感到自豪之餘,我們也領會到體育精神的真諦 —「努力」、「團隊精神」及 「友誼」。
