Sanya was selected as one of the stopover ports for the Volvo Ocean Race 2011-12
To welcome the Volvo Ocean Race 2011-12, a new stopover port has started construction in Sanya, reports sanya.hinews.cn.
In March 2010, Sanya was named as a stopover port for the Volvo Ocean Race 2011-12, becoming the second Chinese port in the history of the Volvo Ocean Race: following Qingdao’s inclusion in the route in 2009.
The total area of the new port will be 400,000 square meters, of which 333,333 square meters on the water. Its main building will be shell-shaped. Apart from that, it will be equipped with a high-end club, a sailors’ reception centre and a commercial centre.
The new port is expected to be put into use next August.
