(MENAFN- The Peninsula) International Military Sports Council (CISM) officials have praised Qatar Emiri Naval Forces for a perfect organisational at the 47th World Military Sailing Championship.

Weller pointed out that the referees are doing great and the observers are on the spot to pick up any infringements.

"There are more than 100 male and female participants representing 17 countries which is very good comparing to previous championships. These countries are representing Asia, Africa, Europe and South and North America.

"I am was happy with the female participation in the championship as it is one of the most important goals that CISM supports," Waltervan said.

Seven countries are taking part in women section of the Doha championship, while 17 countries are taking part in the men's section. Today is the last day of the championship and three races will be held today. The closing ceremony will take place on Saturday.
