Dear Yalies,
Please join us on a summer boat cruise to welcome new Yalies and summer interns (College, SOM, Graduate School, etc.) coming to Hong Kong.  We will be going to Sai Kung, where we will visit Hong Kong Geopark.  This is a spectacular part of Hong Kong that many people have not seen, and is only accessible by boat.  Given its significance and beauty, in 2011, UNESCO listed it as part of its Global Geoparks Network. For more information, see Hong Kong UNESCO Global Geopark.

We will depart from Aberdeen Marina Club at 11:00 am.  As part of the cruise, a barbecue lunch will be served on board. And along the way, we will have some time to go swimming, so please bring your swimsuit.  We will probably arrive back at Aberdeen Marina Club at around 6:00 p.m.

Given we are on a boat, space is limited, so sign-ups are first come first serve.  We request that only Yale alums, interns, and new Yalies coming to HK sign up at this time.  If you intend to bring family/guests or have any questions, please send an email to samwong@aya.yale.edu.  We will put guests on a waitlist on a first come first serve basis, and we will notify you later if space is available.
