In this 5-day programme, you will spend two days on the water learning to sail at Hebe Haven Yacht Club and two days on land learning the basics of horse riding and stable management at Lo Wu Saddle Club. A further day will be spent exploring one of the many hiking trails in Hong Kong. This is an active week which will give you the opportunity to learn new skills!

Sailing:

The sport of sailing is diverse and the Hebe Haven Yacht Club sail training centre aims to introduce children, youth and adults to the many facets of Dinghy and Keelboat sailing.

In this 2-day course, students will complete their Hong Kong Sailing Federation Level 1 Certificate and learn:

How a boat handles and manoeuvres

Rigging the boat

Sailing terminology

Teamwork and leadership skills

Building self-confidence and independence

Spatial awareness

Weather knowledge

Cost includes lunch each day, sailing gloves, Logbook & Certificate. No prior experience necessary.

*There is an option to spend the full 5 days sailing and completing both Level 1 & 2 HKSF Certificate, with the aim of having sailors safely sail a small boat on their own in light to moderate winds by the end of the week – if you wish to do this, indicate this in the explanation section of the options form.

Horse Riding and grooming:

Experience the excitement of horse riding and the pleasure of close contact with these gentle charismatic animals at Lo Wu Saddle Club – the first independent riding club in Hong Kong.

Experience will be tailor made pending on your level of experience. No prior experience with horses required.

As well as having two daily lessons in the saddle, you will also learn how to groom your horse or pony, tack up properly and be taught how these lovely animals should be cared for. There will be daily quizzes and opportunities to have plenty of hands-on experience.
