The well known Taiwan-based luxury yacht builder, Horizon, is dedicated to promoting marine activity on the Chinese yachting market, encouraging more customers to enjoy boating as well as water sports activities. The company has recently partnered with the ASA sailing school from Aletheia University in Taiwan to form a “Horizon Yacht” sailing team. The new Horizon sailing team participated in the Eight China Club Challenge Match, running from October 1st to 7th. It achieved an excellent, sixth place among the 27 teams who took part in this year’s match.
During the first three days of the match, 27 teams were divided into Group A & Group B for a fleet racing competition, and each team needed to complete three round matches per day. After nine rounds of fleet racing, the Horizon Yacht team gained the number three position within the Top 16 teams who progressed in the competition.
With the fleet racing complete, the Top 16 teams moved onto Day 4 with match races and strived for high ranking within the Top 8 teams. Using sailboats supplied by the organizer, the Horizon Yacht team advanced their position in the Top 8 during this second phase of the contest, and by the end of the third phase (and after much hard work!) the Horizon team was awarded the sixth place medal.
Horizon is extremely pleased with the Horizon Yacht sailing team’s debut performance at the 2012 China Club Challenge Match and looks forward to continue promotions of both the Horizon brand and the yachting lifestyle in the Chinese market.
