Re: Sailing from China to Japan

Area yacht clubs may have members who need crew for races. Once you make those connections you might be able to get on as a crew moving a boat to where you want to go.

Finding a cruising vessel you would need to look on website such as www.noonsite.com or similiar.

Re: Sailing from China to Japan

Not many cruising sailboats in China. The government have made it incredibly expensive and bureaucratic for both locals and expat cruisers. Good news is the flights to Japan are quite cheap.

Re: Sailing from China to Japan

I lived in China for a while, while there is a sizable sailing activity in Qingdao mainly as sport and Hainan as incredibly expensive short range charter, I would say for the most part forget about it in China, your best bet would be in Hong Kong.


Sailing in Japan wasn't that viable as well, berthings are difficult to get, and last I ask in Yokohama, it was only available for boats in the 30 feet range.
