Statement from 2019 World Rowing Coastal Championships Organizing Committee on the current situation in Hong Kong
26th August 2019
Despite the reports of protests in recent weeks, Hong Kong remains a welcoming city for tourists and investors, a safe place for travelers from around the world.
Hong Kong has a long tradition of peaceful and orderly protest processions. However, in recent weeks some of these have resulted in confrontations between police and protesters on a number of occasions which has been widely reported around the world. These confrontations have been confined to limited and specific areas and were generally not widespread; daily activity in the majority of Hong Kong has continued as normal.
The proposed 2019 WRCC race village at Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club and the race course itself are not affected and are relatively isolated from the protest areas. The Organizing Committee is continuing to closely monitor the situation and is coordinating with different Government departments and partner organizations to ensure the smooth running of Championships.
We will continue to publish updates of the situation in Hong Kong and we will be happy to answer all questions.
If you have any concerns or further questions, please feel free to contact us.
Regular updates will be available on our event website at https://www.wrcc2019.com/en/
