香港衝浪及直立板總會主席: 希望為港人帶來正能量!

主席吳宇豐相信海洋有一種治癒能力,總是能夠讓人平靜放鬆。他除了希望幫助醫護人員籌款外,更希望籍是次籌款活動以直立板(Stand-up Paddle Board,簡稱SUP)勉勵港人要「Stand Up」抗疫,「無論環境有多困難都好,都要Stand Up(站起來)面對,無論順流、逆流都要努力站起來,靠自己一一撐過去。」

要選擇不太大風的日子,天氣報告要約兩星期前才有預測,本會暫定在5月第3或第4個星期進行籌款活動,其間會有後勤團隊作支援。3位直立板運動員伍英麟、戴廣達以及黎紀賢在去年均有代表香港出戰國際賽事。

每日平均划36公里 比平日比賽多一倍

180公里,從香港最西端的屯門划往最北端的吉澳,對於平日長距離比賽練習一般為8至18公里的港將們是一大考驗,5天內完成即平均每日要划36公里。以比賽的速度計算,18公里需划2小時多至3小時,估計每天會用5到6小時划板。今次路線大部分為外海,第1日由屯門到塘福,第2日由塘福到春坎角,第3日由春坎角到滘西,第4日由滘西到吉澳,第5日再由吉澳到海下。每日都要面對強勁水流、逆風和側風等不定因素,對他們來說是一大挑戰。
