China America's Cup Team 美洲杯帆船赛中国之队

For friends of China's official America's Cup sailing team

It was a great surprise to discover a brand new sailing club located at the Beijing Olympic Rowing-Canoeing Park in Shun Yi, Beijing.

Today it was windy, and a large crowd of beginners and more experienced sailors had gathered at the new club.

They offer a large fleet of the small FE 11 dinghies for children, a Topaz and a Weta trimaran, which I sailed and enjoyed immensely as she really flies in a breeze with the asymmetrical spinnaker.

They have a large staff of instructors, some of which are recruited from the Olympic sailing village in Qingdao.

The club is open every day between April 1 and October 31, so you still have one more month to try it out.

You pay a RMB 20 Olympic park entrance fee, and then you pay for the boat rental which include a locker room and safety vest.
