“To promote sail training to Chinese sailors in China and throughout the world”
The China Sail Training Association has been founded to stimulate interest in sail training in a nation of 1.5 billion people.
China is the only major nation not involved in sail training and the China STA has been set up to bring a Chinese presence to the Tall Ships events and integrate Chinese sailors in to the sailing community.
The China STA does not have its own Tall Ship, yet. We will recruiting suitable young Chinese adults, many of them studying already in Europe, and finding berths for them on vessels already entered in the Tall Ships events.
Our ambition is to raise enough money to fund a Tall Ship for the China STA. Until then significant gains can be made by organising and raising awareness of sail training within China and with the Chinese community living abroad.
