AKP Phnom Penh, August 28, 2021 --
Cambodia Sailing Federation in cooperation with Singapore Sailing Federation will organise the Southeast Asian Sailing Championship in Preah Sihanouk province from Dec. 12 to 17, 2021.
Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen, Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Cambodia, has just agreed in principle with the request of the Cambodian SEA Games Organising Committee (CAMSOC) to organise the international sailing competition.
Some 150 athletes from six Southeast Asian countries are expected to join the contest to be composed of 12 events.
H.E. Thong Khon, Minister of Tourism and Permanent Vice President of CAMSOC said recently that plan was made as sailing sport will not be included in the SEA Games 2022 in Vietnam.
He was positive that the competition would not only promote the collaboration on sailing sport between Cambodia and Singapore, but also help get Cambodia prepared for the sport in the SEA Games 2023 that it will host.
