Hong Kong International Dragon Boat Races 2011

In places with Chinese communities, dragon boat racing is a popular event to celebrate the Dragon Boat Festival (also known as Tuen Ng Festival). In Hong Kong, it is also one of the most exciting sports event you will ever see in the territory. It is immensely popular in Hong Kong and attracts teams from all walks of life, including traditional fishermen.

These are some shots for the event held on 19 June 2011 in the Victoria Harbour. As I do not have the permit to enter the heart of the event venue, most of this shots are long distant capture.
