Yachting about on the river

A flotilla of private yachts cruises along the Huangpu River yesterday to mark this month’s “Yachting Day.” The monthly celebration of the joys of yachting was launched last September. Yesterday’s cruisers sailed alongside the Bund to the delight of passing tourists and locals, before splitting away between the Nanpu and Lupu bridges. The maritime procession lasted for about an hour. To ensure the safety of the yachtsmen and other river users, the Shanghai Maritime Bureau put up information notices in advance of the show. The monthly event is designed to promote yachting in and around Shanghai, according to local officials. — IC
