The new Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) chair and administrator Rolen Paulino has observed that tourism activities are picking up at the Subic Freeport.

“First, Ironman was here two weeks ago. This is the second international sporting event after my appointment as SBMA chairman. And this goes to show that tourism is back in Subic,” Paulino was quoted as saying in a Punto Central Luzon report.

Paulino welcomed guests and participants of the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race, the second international sporting event to happen at the freeport, after the Inter-Agency Task Force for Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases placed Central Luzon under Alert Level 1, among most areas in the country.

The Clipper Race, according to the Punto report, is a yacht race that goes around the world, facing one of the biggest challenges of the natural world and an endurance test like no other.

Each fleet of yacht has a fully qualified skipper and first mate to safely guide the crew.

The race has restarted in Subic Bay, having been on hold for two years since the COVID-19 pandemic restricted the movement of people to prevent the spread of the disease.
