Some 200 athletes from seven countries will participate in the Southeast Asian Sailing Championship to be held in Preah Sihanouk province from Dec. 12 to 17, 2021.
The update was shared by H.E. Vath Chamroeun, Secretary General of the Cambodian SEA Games Organising Committee (CAMSOC).
The international sport competition, to be composed of 12 events, will be organised by Cambodia Sailing Federation in cooperation with Singapore Sailing Federation.

H.E. Thong Khon, Minister of Tourism and Permanent Vice President of CAMSOC, 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.
