Guangzhou, April 5 - During the 14th Asian Sailing Championship at the Guangdong Ocean Sports Training Centre in Shanwei from March 20 to 29, the Broadcasting & Media Services Department of the Guangzhou Asian Games Organising Committee (GAGOC) worked closely with the event's organisers to provide the media with a range of services.
Meanwhile, the department did filming and photography testing from media boats and unmanned aircraft, which proved to be satisfactory. The experience will benefit the broadcasting of Sailing competitions at the Asian Games this November.
