Re: Cruising experience: Central/Northern Chinese, Southern Japanese and/or South Kor

Japan has great 500mb charts of that area so if you keep a good eye out and have learned your cyclone holes you will be right.

We have been thinking of that area also but now we are thinking more of the jungle rivers of PNG and Borneo. Drawing three feet and aluminum gives us the ability to explore a lot of great places. But we also want to spend a season in the Carolines some time in the next few years of so maybe we will west and take a look at the South China Sea.
We love all the S. Pacific and we don't mind the cruisers so we are always happy along the milk run. We made a lot of friends along that route both cruisers and locals they are friends for life.
If we ever decide to bring the boat back to the states someday we would like to do the Pacific circle route and spend a winter in Japan. We hear from other cruisers that have done so that you are treated like a king by the locals wherever one ties his dock lines.
Best to you.

Re: Cruising experience: Central/Northern Chinese, Southern Japanese and/or South Kor

In 2009 and 2010 we spent a total of 12 months cruising in Japan, 11 months in South Korea and we were fortunate (?) in being invited to Quingdao, China to enter their 'International' race. ( we are a steel 53ft yacht..definitely a cruiser rather than a racer) . Our hosts in China paid all our entry expenses, the Marina was free...and best of all they paid us to enter their race.

While we were away we did a blog

Kiwis cruising in Charioteer

We found Japanese official to be extremely friendly and helpful...once we learnt the right questions to ask.
The Korean officials were always helpful and friendly no matter what questions we asked. The Korean people were always amazed that we were cruising there...they do not know what a beautiful country they have.
In both countries between two/ three miles of the coast is considered as an 'off shore or long distance' voyage...and there will be paper work...
