(visited by Stephen Egge and Teresa Wolff)

27-Nov-2003 -- We drove down the eastern coast of Taiwan to loacte this point which is approximately 10 km south of Fulong. It was stated this was a water point approximately one mile offshore. We packed up Terry's kayak and devised a plan for her to keep the equipment dry while she paddeled out to the point. We arrived as near the point as we could on shore. The tide was quite low so we were able to get pretty close. Unfortunately there was a classifed Super Typhoon (Lupit)off of the coast of the Phillipines. While we weren't experiencing any significantly bad weather but there were 3 meter waves and winds were at 30 - 40 knots gusting 50.

We walked out as far as possible on a rock shelf to take the reading wich put us around 200 meters from the point. Unfortunately, the exact point lie in the middle of the breaking waves where they were hitting the submerged rock shelf. It was too dangerous to try, so we jumped in the car and drove for the other water point 25N 121E on the western coast of Taiwan. We knew form kite boarding experience that the west coast was generally windier this time of the year but the seas would also be a little calmer.
