The developer / owner of the club had shut down the club while giving a short notice to its occupants.

Boat Mooring facilities in HK
You don’t have to be a member of a club in Hong Kong to own a boat and moor it. There are mooring facilities available by the government, althhough at the moment the moorings are full. But it is still possible to rent one from existing owner. In Hong Kong a private yachts are normally moored inside a typhoon shelter. Which means a break water wall that protects the boats from strong thunderstorms that occur yearly in Hong Kong. Legally people can anchor their boats in open seas but that will break any boat apart in pieces during rough weather and going on and off the boat would be difficult.
Some of the typhoon shelters in Hong Kong where mooring facilities available are, Aberdeen Typhoon Shelter, Kwun Tong Typhoon Shelter, Causeway Bay typhoon shelter, Shau Kei Wan Typhoon Shelter, Sam Ka Tsuen Typhoon Shelter, Yim Tin Tsai (Tai Po) typhoon shelter.
These are some of the typhoon shelters where there are some leisure boats parked, other typhoon shelters in Hong Kong are mainly crowded by local fishermen or who run fishing or boat rental businesses.
Natural protected places, rent free mooring
Other naturally protected places where people moor their boats are in Tai Tam Habour in HK island, and in Tso Wo Hang Pier in Sai Kung New Territories. People normally do not pay any rents here, but some people pay some locals to look out and security of their vessels and to provide a small dinghy to take them back and forth to and from their boats.
