As the regatta’s charity partner, Splash Foundation continues to play its part in helping raise funds and awareness to give more people the opportunity to swim. By connecting those who can swim with those who want to learn, Splash has taught over 6000 adults and children how to swim and be water safe and helped foster a deeper appreciation for the environment and the protection of Hong Kong’s iconic coastline and water resources. Libby Alexander, CEO & Co-Founder of Splash Foundation, fellow Co-Founder and marathon swimmer Simon Holliday shared in the regatta celebrations adding even more meaningful purpose and ambition to the regattas community.
