Growing up by the sea in his hometown of Shenzen, Chen Jinhao has sailed his entire life.
Jinhao was selected to Shenzhen provincial sailing team and later joined a race team in Hong Kong sailing a 77ft yacht, broadening his sailing career.
Since then, Jinhao has accumulated a wealth of knowledge and experience across a broad spectrum of the sport, culminating in a historic race win with Dongfeng Race Team in the 2017-2018 Volvo Ocean Race, sailing under the management of now team principle Bruno Dubois.
Passionate about growing the sport in China, Jinhao founded the Unione Sailing Club in Shenzhen, introducing and teaching the sport to young people, which he looks forward to continuing through the foiling academy.
When not sailing, Jinhao enjoys singing and cooking.
“My moto has always been ‘fight hard, then you may win’ and we know this is going to be true of SailGP.”
