A team of sailors from China will take part in the Western Cape Sailing Championships in Mossel Bay from 14– 17 April 2017. The Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport (DCAS), in partnership with the Royal Cape Yacht Club and South African Sailing Western Cape (SASWC) welcomed the Chinese sailing team and the Chinese delegation on Tuesday 11 April 2017.

DCAS in partnership with Western Cape Sport Federation and SASWC, facilitated the participation of a sailing delegation from Qingdao, Shandong. This is part of an effort to improve sporting relations between DCAS and Shandong Province.

The Chinese delegation consists of four youth sailors, one team leader and one coach. The participants will take part in a fun-filled Easter egg hunt and other sport and recreation activities.

Bev le Sueur from SASWC, and Sport and Recreation Acting Chief Director Thabo Tutu welcomed everyone to the event. Chinese team leader Xin Keijang, thanked everyone for attending and making the exchange programme a success.

The opening ceremony will take place on 13 April 2017 and close on 17 April 2017 at the Mossel Bay Yacht Club, Mossel Bay Eden District.
