Cruising the China Coast

Not sure if anyone has cruised up the china coast to Shanghai.

In a few months, I am planning to sail to Shanghai and stay at Dongtou Island. My business partner has a place there and looks like some good anchorages.

Has anyone cruised China coast? Checked in with Chinese authorities?

My route would be from Philippines to Taiwan, then to Xiamen China, and the up to Shanghai.

What is your experiecne?

Re: Cruising the China Coast

China is not a cruising ground ... lots of red tape, no ”wild” anchoring, your pleasure boat is considered by Chinese officials like any other foreign commercial vessel... be prepared to have pilots on board, do your clearances through agents .... and bring lots of money for the corresponding fees.
More or less the only place you can visit on a regular budget is Sanja .

You could contact the royal Hong Kong yacht club ...they might have additional information for you.

Yeah thats kind of what i figured. Although since i am working in China, i can go to the authorities while i am here and get what i need.

Im hoping that someone has first hand experience.

I will let you know. I am communicating with the Chinese government now to find out all the red tape. Good thing i have friends that are part of a yacht club here in Wenzhou. They are helping me with all the info.

Would be great to sail to Taiwan.

my friend lars stopped there a few years back on Yacht Jennifer,perhaps contact him,he has a blog of his travels,their report was not very favorable,having to stay in the big ship anchorage and only allowed to use the ports ferry boat to go ashore with,cruising independently was not allowed,and the check in and out was very expensive.

Re: Cruising the China Coast

Enlisting the help from local yacht clubs is the most powerful tool to cut thru regulations not meant for yachts.
Having done the same in Japan many years ago when they had no procedure was the best networking tool

i think they assume we all sail around in super yachts in the west,little yachts don't even come into the equation.

if you use the link,i would contact lars direct,he is very happy to answer questions,and very accomplished sailor with about 5 circumnavigations!
