Sanya, the energetic fast-developing holiday resort and sailing centre on Hainan Island in the south of China has signed up as a first-time Team Partner and Host Port for the next two editions of the Clipper Race, through to 2020.

Sir Robin Knox-Johnston signed the agreement with Sanya on behalf of the Clipper Race and said: "I am very pleased to welcome Sanya as a Host Port and Team Partner. This is a beautiful resort in the south of China, with excellent marina facilities and a strong sailing heritage; I'm confident that our crew, partners and supporters will enjoy their time here. We also look forward to taking the name of Sanya around the world on their team yacht to attract even more international tourists to come here to discover everything the city has to offer."

The contract was signed by the Mayor of Sanya City, Mr. Wu Yanjun. He said: “Having a partnership with the Clipper Race helps us to promote the city brand profile and push the development of water sports. More significantly, it will help build up Sanya’s name as an international sailing destination and further enhance the city’s strategy of combining sports and tourism as a long-term development plan. Sanya will have everything ready to accommodate the Clipper Race and warmly welcome its sailing ‘warriors’ and international guests from all over the world for tourism, trade and investment.”

The Clipper Race has had a long association with China over the last twelve years. Qingdao became the first Chinese city to be named as a Team Partner and Host Port in 2005 and has completed six editions so far. It recently agreed to participate in two further races in 2017-18 and 2019-20 and is the longest ever consecutive partner of the Clipper Race.

The Clipper Race fleet is anticipated to arrive in Sanya for the first time in February 2018, as part of the Asia Pacific Leg.

As a renowned domestic and international tourism destination, Sanya offers a distinctive combination of mountain, sea, golden beaches, river and city and warm temperatures which last through all seasons. It is also well known for its great warmth and hospitality from the local community. In recent years, the city has worked with a number of international sailing events which has helped the city gain a lot of experience and skills in organising major events. The newly established partnership with Clipper Race will further boost this development under the strategy of combining sports and tourism to improve Sanya city’s brand profile around the globe.
