Shanshui Marina in Wuxi

Since end of 2007 there is a beautiful new marina on Tai Hu lake near Wuxi, China. It’s the TaiHu Shanshui International Club & Marina.
Two weeks ago we were the guests of Sales and Marketing Director Francke Choo.
We were invited to participate with a team of Shanghai Boat and Yacht Club in a regatta with Jeanneau 32’s, the first of it’s kind on the lake. Six teams in total were participating.

After training and familiarizing ourselves with the boats on the Friday, the actual race took place on Saturday. Wind conditions were good for most of the day, and after an exciting 3 races, our team was able to claim the second place. Plans are to hold a similar regatta again in May 2010.
On Sunday we did some crusing on the spacious lake. All in all a great weekend.
