The Closing Ceremony had nothing to envy the Opening, except for the announcement that Nelson's Dockyard had been included, that very day -Sunday, July 17th-, in the UNESCO World Heritage Site List. "A World Heritage Site is a place (such as a building, city, complex, desert, forest, island, lake, monument, or mountain) that is listed by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as being of special cultural or physical significance." (Wikipedia) The Dockyard had been in the tentative list for a year but the work towards this achievement had commenced more than two decades ago. All the country celebrated the news and the ceremony was no exception. So proud we are about Nelson's Dockyard and so grateful to the people that made this dream become true.

After the usual speeches of local authorities and organisers, it was the time for the winners to come on stage and for the audience to applaud them. AFter that, the party began: a group of dancers entertained sailors, parents, coaches and visitors alike till well past 9:pm. UNFORGETABLE, as the whole championship!
