Yachting: China's Guo completes epic solo sail

Chinese yachtsman Guo Chuan on Friday became the first sailor from China to complete a non-stop solo circumnavigation of the globe. The former scientist returned to the northeastern port city of Qingdao, his home town, after a gruelling five-and-a-half month voyage and immediately paid tribute to his late father. "He passed away in 2011 when I was training in Europe. It's been a regret that I failed to bid him farewell," state news agency Xinhua quoted him saying. "I wish he could see me today."
