10th Apr, I returned to China with my new Ladoga 1 adv(with sail system) for a short term vacation. This season's temperature in south China is around 20~28℃. It is very comfortable for sailing.

I found a sailing club in one of the Dapeng bay beachs .because i don't have any sailing experience before. I need some guide.

With the help of the club staff. I successfully assemblied the boat and sailing system. It took more than 1 hour and consumed some of my energy. But it was not so bad. When i entered into the water , i forgot this unpleasant thing very soon.

That day was low wind. But it was good for me to practice the kayak sailing skill

Dapeng Bay is one of the most beautiful Bay in China
