Lantau first phase nears completion HONG KONG: Phase one of the marina refurbishment at Lantau Yacht Club (LYC) – the first ‘new’ marina to open in Hong Kong in over ten years – is due for imminent completion. The entire marina should be fully operational by the fourth quarter of this year. Featuring 148 wet berths ranging from 10 to 60m (33 to 197ft) in length, the marina is custom-built and typhoonproof with a well-built breakwater that has proven itself over several decades, including withstanding the devastating 2018 typhoon.
