SANYA, Sept. 19 (Xinhua) -- A 30-minute documentary focusing on the Sanya Serenity Coast team's performance in the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race, premiered on Wednesday in Sanya, a coastal city in China's Hainan Province.

The documentary called "On the way to the great oceans", documents the tale of Sanya Serenity Coast becoming the first ever Chinese team to clinch an overall victory in the Clipper Race which concluded in Liverpool on July 28.

Led by Clipper Race skipper Wendy Tuck, 53, from Sydney, over 60 non-professional crew members represented the tropical destination of Sanya as they competed in 13 individual races on board the Clipper 70.

Ming Hao, the documentary producer as well as media crew member, spent the year with the team capturing the highs and lows of the race. "Racing around the globe is about challenging nature and it's a great opportunity for me to race with the Sanya Serenity Coast team," Ming said.

Dai Yuming, vice mayor of Sanya, said he is looking forward to the Clipper 2019-20 Race, in which Sanya will have an even more profound presence.

By inviting dignitaries on board, holding tourism exhibitions and events, the Sanya Organizing Committee has promoted the city at all the Clipper Race Stopovers since the race started in August 2017.
