Sailing to Hong Kong.

This is feasible using the new 'Aqua traditional Chinese junk'.

Aqua Restaurant Group, creators and operators of some of Hong Kong's most cutting edge restaurants including the highly acclaimed aqua, Hutong, Ayuthaiya, Shui Hu Ju, Water Margin and WasabiSabi have launched what promises to be the most exclusive ever built traditional Chinese junk - and in all likelihood, the last to be designed and handmade in Hong Kong.

aqua luna is a 28-metre traditional three sail Chinese junk conceived, designed and painstakingly hand built for the Aqua Restaurant Group over a period of 18 months in the Hong Kong shipyard of an 80 year old master craftsman, supervised by an equally experienced 73 year old ship-building veteran, using traditional Chinese boat building methods which have now all but died out in Hong Kong.

This is what I did. Please enjoy the sail.
