Organised by the Consulate General of France in Hong Kong and Macau, Le French May aims to present a whole range of events celebrating the best of France and its culture which includes the importance of the sea.
Le French May 2014 will also celebrate the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the People’s Republic of China and France and will explore the similarities between the two cultures.
Le French May - Societe Generale Spring Regatta will feature over 100 boats in 10 different categories of racing in Victoria Harbour on the weekend of 10 and 11 May.
Joint Title Sponsor, Societe Generale, will also host an exclusive dinner event at the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club on Friday 9 May as a prelude to the 'celebration of sailing' that weekend.
Mark Bovaird, General Manager at the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club stated, 'The Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club is happy to join Le French May and its celebration of the sea and cultural relations with China. We share the same mission – to actively collaborate with stakeholders in China, which in our case is to drive the growth of sailing and rowing - and we are honoured that the Consulate General of France has recognised our contribution to the growth of these sports here in Asia.'
