  • Description

    In Ghana, fishermen from Accra's seven divisions took part in a boating festival organised by the Tourist Control Board.

    SYNOPSIS: A number of tourists were among the hundreds of Ghanaians who went to Accra's old harbour to watch the heats and semi-final of the rowing events take place. According to the Tourist Control Broad, the main purpose of the boating festival was to enhance the calendar of sporting events in the capital. It said it was aware that the country could do with more entertainment and relaxation facilities for both tourists and the general public alike. The Board said it was sure that events such as these could go a long way in uplifting the image and prospects of holiday-making in Ghana. It plans to eventually hold them in all parts of the country for the benefit of those who are unable to journey into the capital.

    Fishing has always played an important part in Ghanaian life, and the Tourist Control Board said it was for this reason that working fishermen were chosen to compete in the first festival.
