The newest keel boat regatta on the world sailing scene, the China Cup International Regatta is making waves. The inaugural China Cup International Regatta was sailed from October 19th to 21st 2007 in Shenzhen, China just a few hours north of Hong Kong. Organised by the Chinese Yachting Association and the Executive Authority of the Organizing Committee of the 26th Summer Universiade (Shenzhen, China), the event was hosted by the Longcheer Yacht Club, with race management supplied by the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club.

Asian Yachting circuit veteran Captain Marty Rijkuris has been advising Asian events for some years, that the key to long term success is one design boats. Listing carefully, the China Cup organisers purchased ten Beneteau First 40.7's to create a one design class. Simpson Marine, the Asian Beneteau distributor fielded their own boat. Crews from Australia, Brazil, Denmark, France United Arab Emirates, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Taiwan and USA were racing against two Mainland China teams

Racing started on the 19th October with a passage race from Hong Kong to the Longcheer Yacht Club, Shenzhen, China. This was followed by two days of inshore windward/leeward racing and an Island passage race. The fleet of 55 boats sailed in four divisions, including IRC, sports boat and the two One Design classes

The top results were:

IRC A: 1. Quantum Racing 2. Jelik 3. Fortis Mandrake

IRC B (Beneteau 40.7 One Design): 1. Japan 2. Brazil 3. New Zealand

HKPN: 1. Xanadu 2 2. Tara 3. Lady Luck

CCPN: 1. Longtze Premier 2. Tornado 3. China 7

Vice Mayor of Shenzhen, Liang Daoxing says Shenzhen will be an important sailing centre, because of its weather and geography. 'Shenzhen has the most private sailboats in China, making it the right place for the development of the marine industry and culture.'

'The future for sailing in China is very bright. The 2008 Olympic sailing regatta in Qingdao will be a major step forward for Chinese sailing and then the Volvo Ocean Race will stop in Qingdao in early 2009.

'Will sailing be really big in China? When you see 100 or so media at events like this you'd have to think so.

The China (October 25-28) leg of the 2007 PETRONAS Sprinta FIM Asian Grand Prix has brought good luck for the PETRONAS camp in the SuperSports 600cc class of the Championship. This was particularly true in Race 2 of the class that saw the first all-PETRONAS podium of the season.

PETRONAS Sprinta Yamaha Thailand's Decha Kraisart and Chalermpol Polamai kept up their race-winning form with an authoritative 1-2 finish in Race 2 with times of 30:14.322 and 30:21.749 respectively. PETRONAS Sprinta Yamaha Malaysia's Ahmad Fuad Baharudin capped off a successful weekend for team PETRONAS by taking 3rd place with 30:23.946 while his team mate Azlan Shah Kamaruzaman did himself proud by taking 4th place with 30:27.623.


Round 5 of the 2007 PETRONAS Sprinta FIM Asian Grand Prix at the Zhuhai International Circuit kicked off with the Underbone 115cc category, racing for the first time in China since the class was introduced in 2005. Just like in the other host circuits, this class brought about intense close racing that saw the top-7 riders battling for position for the entire duration of the 10-lap race. The lead changed hands with every corner and the winner was only determined at the final lap when Com Star YY Pang's (No 18) Md Rafie Md Naser won his first race of the season with a time of 22:47.104.

The Malaysian camp celebrated an all-Malaysian podium in Race 1 when Harian Metro SCK's Md Affendi Rosli and PETRONAS Sprinta Ah Hong rookie Elly Idzlianizar Ilias placed 2nd and 3rd with times of 22:47.187 and 22:47.222 respectively.

All boats in the Total Lubmarine Asia Pacific Hong Kong to Hainan Race have completed the race, with Steve Manning's 'Walawala' reaching Sanya just before 1100 hours this morning after 47 hours of sailing.
Line Honours was claimed by Sam Chan's 'Ffree Fire 52' after a 32 hour downhill slide in 18 to 22 knots of breeze. The TP52 was also to claim 1st Overall with 'Fortis Mandrake' arriving at midnight after an expensive trip, having trashed all her kites in the first 250nm.
It was a long night for the finishing boat, with 'Strewth' crossing the line at around 0500hrs this morning, and 'Shahtoosh' 30 minutes behind that. 'Walawala' completed the set and the provisional boats show the boats mirroring their finish on the water.
