These fascinating happenings welcome all residents and tourists to experience and enjoy the charm of sailing sports, as well as the allure of Macau’s shores.

The fun-packed event includes an array of sailing-themed game booths, remote-controlled sailboats competitions, Optimist sailing and windsurfing trial experiences, family workshops, gastronomic offerings and interactive performances.

On the same day, MGM also invited 70 parents and children from UGAMM, Women’s Association and FAOM to spend some fun family time at the “Sailing Fun Day”.


Kenneth Feng, President, Chief Strategic & Financial Officer of MGM, said, “In view of promoting the initiative of ‘Tourism+Sports’, MGM has rolled out several spin-off happenings, including sailboat display and family fun day last year, when we first became the title sponsor of the race. This year, we took an extra mile to extend our reach with the new ‘Sailing Fun Day’, a themed carnival with game booths and an array of activities, alongside tasty delicacies by the beautiful seashore of the Macau peninsula. Being a unique spot for parents and children to spend a pleasant, fun weekend under the sun, it at the same time helps the public to explore their interest in maritime sports. MGM will continue to create more diverse activities for the race in order to maximize the synergy of Macau’s sports events in the future.”
