Yacht teams from 20 countries and territories in the world will take part in the International Yacht Festival 2011 which will be held in Mui Ne, in the central province of Binh Thuan from March 17-20.

Themed “Yacht, Sea, Sand and Sun,” the second yacht festival will include interesting sports, tourism and entertainment activities such as a yacht exhibition, a yacht performance by professional athletes, plus international music performances with the participation of artists from the Czech Republic, the Republic of Korea, Australia and Russia and arts performances from Vietnam.

There will be a seminar on building a brand name for Vietnamese sea activities, along with advertising and developing yachting amusements in Vietnam.

At a press briefing in Hanoi on January 20, Deputy Chairman of the Binh Thuan People’s Committee Nguyen Van Thu said the organisation of the festival is to popularise Mui Ne Beach attractions to domestic and foreign tourists and develop Vietnam’s sea tourism.

The event is also a chance for international yacht groups to consider investing and building yacht production plants for export in Binh Thuan to provide for the Asian market.

Boasting a 192km coastal line, Binh Thuan Province boasts abundant sea resources with beautiful beaches, historical and cultural monuments and captivating traditional festivals which are suitable for sea tourism development.

The International Yacht Association ranks Mui Ne as one of the best beaches for sailing in Asia. Mui Ne welcomed 2.5 million tourists, 15% of whom were foreigners, in 2010. Binh Thuan Province aims to attract 3.5 million visitors – including 500,000 foreigners – to the beach by 2015.
