In the talk, Guy shows countless beautiful photographs, and gives practical information about anchorages, waterfront and floating restaurants, marine services and much more. There’s also a brief history of Hong Kong’s famous and historic connection to the sea. He gives a fulsome commentary on the geology of the spectacular coastline itself.
This is a talk as much for armchair cruisers, as for those who want to visit these extraordinary places, showing Hong Kong’s finest glories.
Sailor, photographer and writer Guy Nowell has been sailing since he was eight years old, having been pushed out onto a small lake at boarding school in dinghy with the sail rigged upside down. He went on to read Geography at Cambridge University. Guy came to Hong Kong working for an international bank in 1981, but decided that writing and photography were more interesting.
Since then he has sailed almost every kind of craft in Hong Kong, plus blue water trips to the Philippines, China, Singapore and Vietnam, and delivery voyages from Japan and Indonesia. Guy is a contributor to all the major boating magazines in Asia, as well as publications in Australia, USA and the UK. He and his wife, Suzy Rayment, were former owners of Yachtstyle Magazine, as well as being the team that produced the fabulous book Cruising Hong Kong. Cruising Hong Kong is available through www.asiayachtpress.com and at the talk.
