Congratulations to the completion of 2023 #20IMPACT20 Osaka Expedition!


20 resilient individuals got on to the largest training yacht in Hong Kong- the Spirit of Outward Bound Hong Kong, and began their expedition to discover and develop their potential to care for themselves, others, and the world around them through challenging experiences in unfamiliar settings. They underwent rigorous training and round-the-clock sailing that fostered future skills, social inclusion, and well-being.

The impact didn't end there. Each participant had been selected based on their ability to impact a disadvantaged community in Hong Kong. Together, they brought positive impacts to 20 disadvantaged communities upon their return. Upon their return, they had impacted 893 persons from underprivileged communities with 681 service hours.

Thank you to our title sponsor, The Clearwater Bay Golf & Country Club, who make this expedition possible!

About the Expedition

What's the
Spirit of Outward Bound HK?

Spirit of Outward Bound Hong Kong sailed to Japan for the first time with an entirely female team. This leg was a tough upwind sail to Japan in decreasing air temperatures, presenting physical and mental challenges, required true resilience and team spirit. 

Followed by some time in sharing the expedition’s achievements and conducting essential re-supply and maintenance, It brought another 10 resilient individuals returned to Hong Kong, with a mixed-gender crew from Hong Kong; a homecoming expedition. This leg was not a straight line; between testing currents and the seasonal change of wind direction to the southwest, the team had to pick their route carefully and demonstrate great flexibility to adapt to the constantly changing conditions.
