E Class Regatta on Dianshan Lake, Shanghai 100709

Here are photos of last week’s race on Dianshan Lake outside Shanghai to give an idea of how RC sailing is growing in China.

The event consisted of one-meter E class boats which make up the predominate racing fleet in China & was held on the Olympic Rowing training. Smaller S class boats sailed by younger enthusiasts were also in attendance. #90 with the British Racing Green hull belongs to one of our members who lives in Shanghai & sails frequently with us in Hangzhou. He took first in the afternoon races & also provided excellent coverage of the event.

We have a another one-meter arriving in Hangzhou this week so weekend racing will soon be upon us.

Great pics, thanks for sharing.


Really cool pics and what a quick boat!!
