On the strength of the wind, he drifted from China to the United State，Huangjun get success.
On March 23, 2018, 11 racing boats set out from the west coast of Qingdao to Seattle, across the North Pacific Ocean. Huang Jun said that the Qingdao-Seattle stage was the most difficult of the eight stages. "The pressure in the North Pacific is very unstable. We cross the North Pacific at this time, and the probability of encountering more than two typhoons is basically 100%. Crossing the Atlantic or Indian Ocean, there is not much chance of typhoons. Like this time we encountered a typhoon of Class 11. Facing the typhoon, I felt that the wave was about ten meters, like a hill, and our boat felt like a grass slide, sliding all the way from the top of the hill to the bottom, which was very dangerous.
In addition to typhoons, along the way, Huang Jun also encountered difficulties such as engine house fire, seasickness to spit out bile, and even because of the lack of fresh water, they can only use seawater to cook instant noodles...

In the absence of storms, everyone's work is not easy too. "Twenty-two people were divided into two groups, working alternately every six hours during the day and every four hours at night. Because our ship is driven entirely by the wind, if the wind is particularly strong, sails are also very big, the ship may be too fast, you can not control, or even sails may be directly torn apart; if the wind is small sails, speed is not enough, so one of our important tasks every day is to change sails time by time. Huang Jun said, "Once, before the wind came, we may have changed sails more than a dozen times in two or three hours. One sail weighed about 400 kilograms. It was totally manpower and required a lot of physical strength."

Of course, there are many surprising moments in the voyage. "Groups of dolphins, water-spraying whales, and the magnificent sunrise and sunset at sea... What impressed me most was that my 25th birthday happened to be spent at sea. In a vast ocean, no land can see, others can remember your birthday, especially unforgettable. Our ship is divided into two layers, the top is operational, the bottom is life, I drilled out from below to the top of the deck that day, everyone sitting on the top of the deck, singing happy birthday to you to me, very touched.
"This is a real ocean crossing, from China to the United States, relying on the power of nature, which is rare before. Huang Jun's experience will affect his whole life, which is very inspiring to others too. However, I think it's an adventure, requiring good physical fitness, navigation knowledge and emergency response ability. Mankind is great and powerful." Mr. Li, at gmtlight.
