The ultimate design and daredevil competition, the Red Bull Flugtag returns to Hong Kong this weekend (May 11th), prompting foolhardy competitors to launch their makeshift flying machines off a six-meter high platform, all in the name of fun. Unfortunately for most (but much to the delight of the crowd), gravity is not usually their friend. Red Bull’s marketing guys should have thought this one through!
Luckily, contestants won’t be judged solely on their flight distance, but also on the creativity of their craft and their showmanship as they sink. The Flugtag hasn’t been to Hong Kong since 2010, so head to the New Central Waterfront around 1pm and get in on the chaos!
The crowds are expected to be thick however, so if you fancy a ringside seat in the sun (fat chance!), sign yourself up for Hong Kong Yachting’s Sunday Flugtag Junk. For HK$580 per person, your ticket includes five hours afloat, lunch, drinks and the best view of the belly flops! Click here to book yourself a spot!
