Book Synopsis



This is the true story of the first Dane and first Chinese to row across an Ocean, using a rowboat built in China. They did this in 2001, long before China became the economic superpower it is today, when most people, Chinese and Western alike, believed such an off the wall cross-cultural project was doomed to fail. Yet, against overwhelming odds, the pair succeeded, and they also raised scholarships to send two Mainland Chinese students to the United World College of the Atlantic.


Havrehed tells a down to earth, moving, and often funny story of the unlikely pairing's unique adventure, which went pre-social media viral in China. This updated edition includes perspectives into China's changing role in the world and the new challenges this brings for international understanding and cross-cultural cooperation.



Review Quotes




"The Yantu Project was an audacious undertaking ... this book sends us a powerful message; that it is possible to achieve the seemingly impossible so long as there is trust in one another and a shared vision."

Her Majesty Queen Noor, author of Leap of Faith: Memoirs of an Unexpected Life


"After rowing 5,000km across the roiling Atlantic Ocean with buttocks full of boils and a former PLA soldier who had never been to sea, Christian Havrehed has a kind of story that drops jaws. Before long the book will become a manual for adventurers."

South China Morning Post


"Beijing to Barbados in a Rowboat is an adventure story with a contemporary Asian flavor ... Experienced and armchair adventurers alike will enjoy accompanying the pair through travail to triumph."

The Asia Review of Books


"We are convinced that readers will cherish this book. That their legendary story has been successively published in English, Chinese and Danish already proves that the ideals of "cooperation, adventure and compassion" engage people across nationalities. This book will tell you a true story of beauty and hardship."

Quanhai Li (李全海), Secretary General of the Chinese Yachting Association
