Hands on course shows new sailors the ropes.
Long time Beneteau Yacht dealer, Simpson Marine chose Longcheer Yacht Club in Shenzhen as the venue to present an exciting class to guests interested in learning about yachting. The dealer teamed with the world’s largest boat builder to provide an introductory sailing course. Over 20 potential sailors gathered and were attended to by several of the dealer’s professional staff of sailors.
The training was divided in two sections. The morning lesson was presented by Richard Allen, Beneteau Brand Manager. Richard covered basic theory of sailing, nautical terminology, and an introduction to the Beneteau line of yachts. He was joined in by other company staff and by Duan Fei, a local customer and sailing enthusiast.
After lunch, the afternoon session allowed students to get hands-on involvement with the thrill of sailing on beautiful Daya Bay. Both a Beneteau First 40.7 and an Oceanis 47 were supplied and the class gained real world experience of teamwork and their newfound knowledge in yachting on these big boats. It was a great first-time experience and everyone enjoyed the day.
Simpson Marine has represented Beneteau, the largest yacht builder in the world, in Asia since 1985. As a worldwide leader, Beneteau, together with its dealers, is committed to promoting the yachting lifestyle and both companies will continue to hold similar events in the future to help spread the word about the freedom to be found on the sea.
