Volvo Ocean Race in Guangzhou China station 2017-18 Season
On October 22, 2017, the team participating in this Volvo Ocean Race departs from Alicante, Spain, and will conclude in The Netherlands, The Hague, in June this year. The 45000 nautical miles of the current event spans four oceans, passes through six continents and twelve cities. Guangzhou is the first-tier city in China to visit the Volvo Ocean Race for the first time.
The honorary member of the International Olympic Committee and Chairman of the Fok Ying Tung Group, Timothy Fok, attended the opening ceremony and delivered a speech. He said that the regatta is a good sports event. The entry of international sailing events in China will increase the attention and popularity of the Chinese sailing sport. Timothy Fok also said that it is not the medals that are important for sporting events but the cultivation of sports culture and the enhancement of young people's physical fitness. We hope to increase the international influence of Guangzhou Sports through the Volvo Ocean Race and allow Guangzhou's sports culture to “go out”.
