NANNING, Nov. 2 (Xinhua) -- The 2021 Belt and Road International Regatta will be held in Beihai from November 4 to 12 in south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, the local Sports Bureau announced on Tuesday.

More than 120 high-level sailing athletes from China, the United States, Italy, Germany and other countries and regions will participate, and all overseas athletes are already in China.

As one of the departing ports of the ancient Maritime Silk Road in China, Beihai has stepped up efforts to promote various marine sports in recent years, and strived to build Beihai into an event center in the Beibu Gulf and ASEAN region.

Hosted by the Chinese Yachting Association, the Sports Bureau of Guangxi and the Beihai government, the international Regatta has been held in Beihai for three consecutive years. Enditem
