China Coast Rally for Cruisers (CCRC), initiated by boat owners in China, kicks off this October. The first rally of its kind in China’s sailing community, CCRC is a long-distance sailing rally, crossing over 1,488 nautical miles from the northern seaport city Qingdao to China’s most southerly province Hainan, showcasing the participants’ determination to ensure long passages with strong spirits and seamanship. Beneteau, Lagoon and their dealership network will join hands as partners to give full support to this meaningful event. Simpson Marine will lend a hand in Shenzhen and Sanya to host the rally and welcome the owners with a cheerful party in Seven Star Marina, Shenzhen. Rally sailors will stay a few days in Shenzhen and enjoy the buzz of the China Cup held on Daya Bay, and after an exciting Halloween Party that we plan for 31st October, they will leave for Sanya on 2nd November. The rally’s arrival at Sanya is planned for 4th November, and a big celebration on the mysterious Fenjiezhou Island is set for 5th November, together with an award ceremony celebrating the funniest moments along the way. We have invited all our owners to join the Shenzhen-Sanya leg and are eager to welcome CCRC owners in Shenzhen soon. Set sail for an adventure!
