SYDNEY Bears Jersey Sale , Sept. 2 (Xinhua) -- China will make its debut in one of the world's most prestigious yacht races, entering a crew into the 2015 Sydney to Hobart Bluewater Classic.

The yacht's manager, Serena Cai, said the crew is excited to be the first from the Chinese mainland although there had been entries in the past from China's Hong Kong.

"Ark323 is a purely Chinese entry; a Chinese owner, crew and administrators," Cai said in a statement via the race organizer.

The 12-man crew, drawn from the best sailors in China, has been training together since March and will represent the Noah Sailing Club in Shanghai.

Noah Group chief Wilson Lee - whose company owns the TP52 class yacht - said they decided to enter the classic because of the challenge and nature of the prestigious event.

"It is also one of the ultimate platforms to showcase the Chinese team and the club's passion to increase a Chinese presence at international yachting events."

The crew will sail the yacht from Sanya, China, to Australia for the start of the 628 nautical mile races that leaves Sydney Harbor on Boxing Day and runs down Australia's east coast, across the Bass Strait and into Hobart, the capital of the Tamania Island.

With tears, songs and laughter, 30 women activists set off from Beijing on Tuesday on a controversial trip to North Korea, where they will cross the heavily fortified demilitarized zone (DMZ) to the South in a call for peace on the divided peninsula.

The activists, including veteran American women's rights campaigner Gloria Steinem, plan two peace walks and a peace symposium in North Korea, said Christine Ahn, international coordinator for the group called WomenCrossDMZ.

North and South Korea are technically still at war after the 1950-53 Korea War ended in a truce, not a peace treaty. The North has been slapped with sanctions for its nuclear weapons tests and a U.N. inquiry has detailed wide-ranging abuses in the country.

Ahn, a Korean-American, said it was time to try a different approach to solving the crisis, brushing off criticism that the walk is a naive publicity stunt.

"We have no illusions that our walk can basically erase the conflict that has endured for seven decades," Ahn told reporters, brushing away tears at one point.

"I believe that we are, basically by crossing the DMZ, breaking through this mental state that this is a permanent division," she said.

Despite its name, the DMZ is one of the most heavily militarized borders in the world. There are just three official inter-Korean border checkpoints where it is possible to cross between the two Koreas, although such crossings are rare.

Both the North and the South have given the women permission for the walk on May 24, International Women's Day for Peace and Disarmament. But the group had yet to hear from the United Nations Command, in charge of the Panmunjom border crossing where North and South Korean soldiers stand across from each other in a daily face-off.

The activists would "meet hundreds of North Korean women", tour a maternity hospital, a children's preschool and a women's factory in Pyongyang, Ahn said.

Steinem said the women were engaging with the North because "it seems to me that the past of no contact has not worked".

"Ronald Reagan stood outside the Berlin Wall and said: 'Take down this wall'," she said. "We are saying: 'Take down this isolation.'"
