"Xiamen" sailboat finished its 9-month round-the-world cruise and sailed into the South China Sea on 22nd August, reports Strait Herald.
Following 23,000 nautical miles expedition, the round-the-world sailboat reached China's southernmost tip James Shoal, also known as Zengmu Ansha (曾母暗沙), at 9 am on 22nd August, which received a warm welcome by Chinese coastguard vessels.
Under convoy of Chinese Maritime Surveillance (CMS) ships 75 and 66, the "Xiamen" sailboat was heading for Sansha in Hainan, and will make a stopover there.
A Xiamen group made up of people from all walks of life will leave for Sansha to welcome returning round-the-world sailors.
The sailboat is scheduled to return to Xiamen and berth in Xiamen Wuyuan Bay Port in early September.
