2019-11-06

 

The 15th China Club Challenge Cup was concluded at Wuyuan Bay in Xiamen, East China’s Fujian province.

 

After a total of 147 rounds of competitions, the Shenzhen Seawolf won the final championship.

 

It is worth mentioning that a 2-day teenage-class race was held alongside the China Club Challenge Cup for the first time, at Nanshan district of Guangdong province.

 

A plastic reduction campaign that encourages no consumption of bottled water was also launched during the competition period, in order to enhance public awareness of marine environmental protection.

 

Launched in 2005, the annual event has adopted the same competition rules of the America’s cup, and became one of  supporting activities of the World Ocean Week in Xiamen since 2007.

 

The 2019 regatta is sponsored by Chinese Yachting Association, Xiamen Municipal Bureau of Sports, and Xiamen Huli District People's Government.
