Sail Bunaken 2009

Sun, 08/23/2009

Many tourists from around the globe come to visit the water off Manado in North Sulawesi. Not only does the area boast a comfortable tropical climate, stunning beaches and welcoming residents, its Sail Bunaken marine festival, which took place from Aug. 12 to 20 in Manado, North Sulawesi, has also been a magnet for travelers.

Apart from the yacht race, fishing and massive scuba diving event that involved more than 2,400 divers, warships from around the world were also present at the festival.

Sail Bunaken 2009 was jointly organized by a national committee with the help of the local administration, the Indonesian Navy and some other state institutions.

Not only did the event promote Indonesian maritime tourism, costing more than Rp 30 billion (US$3 million), it was also used to discuss military cooperation.

Representatives from 29 countries and 26 warships took part in the maritime event.


Foreign ships invited to Sail Ambon 2010

With the success of Sail Bunaken 2009, in Manado, the government expects foreign warships to participate in Sail Ambon 2010.

"Sail Ambon 2010 has been approved by the President. We will do our best to make it a success," Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Minister Freddy Numberi said Thursday, as quoted by Antara state news agency.

Sail Bunaken 2009, with a number of events such as sailing regattas, city parades, an international seminar and diving feats, had improved Indonesia's image on the world stage, Freddy said.

Foreign warships such as the USS George Washington, USS Cowpens CG-63 and Fitzgerald DDG 61 may attend the event, he said.
