Setting Sail for Bali's North Shore
'Sail Indonesia' to Brings up to 600 Yacht Enthusiasts to Buleleng and Lovina.
Some 124 sailing yachts carrying an estimated 500-600 people are expected to drop anchor off Bali's north shore at Buleleng starting from September 23, 2007.
Participating in Sail Indonesia - an initiative to attract yacht tourism to Indonesia organized by the Yayasan Cinta Bahari Indonesia - the area near Lovina and Buleleng in North Bali represents just one of 16 country-wide destinations preparing to welcome yachting enthusiasts from around the world.
Several years in the planning, the Sail Indonesia visit to North Bali has involved numerous coordinating meetings between the private sector and the region's tourism officials to ensure the success of the armadas visit, which organizers hope will become a annual event.
A total of 22 nationalities are expected to be represented among the 500-600 yachting visitors expected to spend an average 7 days enjoying the many facets of culture offered in Bali's less-visited North.
Local business and government officials hope that a successful visit to North Bali by Sail Indonesia will advance efforts to see the establishment of a dedicated cruise terminal in the area.
