It takes 11 months for boats to complete the 14 segments, sailing 4,310 nautical miles around the world. They are scheduled to finish in London in July 2016 after leaving Danang.
Welcoming the Danang-Vietnam yacht, the Municipal People’s Committee Chairman, Mr. Huynh Duc Tho, congratulated the team on finishing 6th in the 7th segment of the race. He said: “Danang is the first city in Vietnam to sponsor and host the Clipper Race. This is an excellent opportunity to promote Danang’s image around the world and, at the same time, to also promote trade and investment. ”
Looking at the pictures at the exhibition, Samanta, a French tourist, said: “Danang is a very beautiful city, with charming beaches and mountains. The climate and the people are wonderful too. I can imagine all of lovely Danang through these pictures”.
