Water-enjoyable Hainan, Sports Paradise. On the afternoon of June 3rd, the 7th Hainan Ocean Sports Season 2023, hosted by the Hainan Provincial People’s Government, opened at the public dock of Haikou National Sailing and Yachting Base, marking the annual Ocean Sports Carnival. 

Zhang Huawei, Deputy Secretary General of the Hainan Provincial People’s Government, announced the opening of the Ocean Sports Season. Li Huiwei, Director of the Hainan Provincial Department of Tourism, Culture, Radio, Television, and Sports, presented flags to representatives of various cities and counties. Yang Xinli, Deputy Director of the Hainan Provincial Department of Tourism, Culture, Radio, Television, and Sports, delivered a speech. 

It is understood that the Hainan Ocean Sports season has been successfully held for 6 consecutive years since its establishment in 2017, achieving widespread participation from the local people and target groups of tourists from other provinces, with a focus on covering young and middle-aged people. This Ocean Sports Season aims to cultivate and expand the growth points of sports consumption, promote the construction of Hainan International Tourism Consumption Center and National Sports Tourism Demonstration Zone, and continue to create an internationally renowned water sports tourism destination. 

At the opening ceremony, the lively opening song and dance “Ocean Youth” was performed, with singers and dancers showcasing the vitality and youth of the ocean sports through various forms of performances, leading the audience to understand the new charm of the ocean sports. Around the stage, themed areas such as coastal hiking interaction area, ocean sports performance area, and well-known sports brand shopping display area are also set up to create an atmosphere of ocean sports and tourism, further highlighting the water-enjoyable theme and creating an immersive experience in multiple aspects. Sailing world champion Chen Peina, water skiing world champion Chen Lili, and web swimming world champion Shu Chengjing sent their blessings to this Ocean Sports Season through video, cheering and supporting the Hainan ocean sports, further igniting the enthusiasm of the on-site audience. 

This Ocean Sports Season will continue to follow the goal of “setting a theme every month and having activities every week”, creating five main themes: “sailing, coconut breeze and sea charm, riding the wind and waves, energetic coastal areas, and water-enjoyable carnival”, promoting the deep integration of sports and tourism, and advancing the high-quality and rapid development of water sports in Hainan Province. The event will continue until September, with over 30 events launched, allowing citizens and tourists to fully unlock Hainan’s “tourism + sports + consumption” while playing, making it a higher quality water-enjoyable feast. 

It is reported that the Hainan Ocean Sports Season, as a provincial-level event, needs to coordinate the province’s sports and tourism resources, integrate the unique resources of each city and county with existing traditional ocean sports projects based on the resource characteristics and advantages of each hosting location, fully explore ocean sports projects with local characteristics of each city and county, and provide more ocean sports projects that citizens, tourists, and friends can participate in and watch.

When the event entered the kickoff stage, the attending leaders and guests held cups filled with seawater and slowly poured them into the kickoff ceremony stage. The colorful smoke on the stage rose synchronously, and the atmosphere of the event instantly became more lively, symbolizing that the Hainan ocean sports entered a new trend.

The opening ceremony was supported by the Water Sports Management Center of the General Administration of Sport of China, the Chinese Yachting Association, the China Fishing Association, undertaken by the Hainan Provincial Tourism and Culture Radio, Television and Sports Department, Hainan Radio and Television General Station (Group), and the people’s governments of relevant cities and counties, and co organized by relevant departments directly under the provincial government.
