Sailors need further studies

The MSAR’s Marine and Water Bureau has provided a one-day supplementary course for yacht sailors following the launch of the Zhongshan-Macau Free Yacht Scheme last Wednesday. Some 29 sailors attended the course to further acquire knowledge about sea matters related to the two regions. Qualifications were given out to those who passed the assessment. The Bureau will consider organising more similar courses in the future, depending on the actual situation and needs. According to the regulations relating to the Free Yacht Scheme between the two regions, sailors from the MSAR need to participate in the course and pass the assessment in order to be approved for sailing.
