1998年,郭川的人生突然转了一个弯,因为一次偶然接触他爱上了航海。

However, Guo Chuan found a new direction at the age of 33 when he boarded a 40-foot keelboat with a friend in Hong Kong.

2004年,郭川参与 “青岛号”中国青岛—日本下关“奥运友好使者行”,驾驶“青岛号”帆船,将青岛市长的一封信亲自送到日本下关市。


When he was appointed the skipper of yacht "Qingdao" in 2004, set to sail to Shimonoseki in Japan in memorial of the 25 years of friendship between the two cities, the knot between Guo Chuan and sailing was believed to be officially tied. The trip as a friendship ambassador motivated Guo Chuan to learn to be a professional sailor.

在随后的十几年间,郭川创造许多个中国“第一”:
He has made history in creating many "firsts" for China.
