The China Sailing Tour began this September, when two Sun Fast 3600s hoisted their sails in Qingdao, in Northern China, making stops in six different cities along the Chinese coast. This sailing event, organised by Jeanneau in partnership with the local dealership, Speedo Marine, finished in Sanya on the 6th of December.
This last leg, in Sanya, took place in two parts.
The first part took place during the "China Rendezvous" boat show, held at the Visun Marina.
Over 100 guests had the opportunity to climb aboard the two Sun Fast 3600s, accompanied by professional sailors from the Dongfeng race team. After four days and 24 pro-amateur races yielding similar performances and very close results, Kit and Leo’s Sun Fast 3600 #1 won the event.
The second part was organised at the SO! Hainan Boat Show, held at the Clearwater Bay Marina.
This leg, on the magnificent Lingshui Bay, brought together over 120 people to participate in 30 pro-amateur races alongside the Dongfeng professional race team. This time, it was Black and Kong’s Sun Fast 3600 #2 that won the event, with 17 races won against 13 for Leo and Kit’s Sun Fast 3600 #1.
Congratulations and thanks to all the participants in this first edition of the China Sailing Tour, as well as to the members of the Dongfeng race team!
