Past Commodore Inge Strompf Jepsen is one of three people who effectively founded the ICOYC. The Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club recently shared this video interview introducing Inge to a broader audience. We recommend it to you as it so beautifully describes the spirit and thinking that continue to be the hallmark of the Council.

About this Video Inge Strompf-Jepsen, Past Commodore —the Interview!

Despite having been our very first Lady Commodore, Inge has always been ‘Inge’ to everyone at the Club – from the staff, every single member and beyond. Everywhere she goes she is greeted by her first name, a big smile and a wave!

In this brilliant interview, Inge shares how she met her husband, Rick, on the Star Ferry, which led to joining the Club and travelling the world competing in many races and regattas. Inge also tells us about the ICOYC, her involvement in race management duties, and her experience being the interior designer of nearly everything you see in the three Clubhouses!
