THIRTY-EIGHT sailors participated during the annual Vuda Regatta which ended at the Vuda Marina in Lautoka yesterday.

The championship attracted sailors from as far as Savusavu and Suva.

The participants competed in the optimist sailing, laser sailing and hobie cat sailing categories.

Vuda Sailing Championship race master and Vuda Marina representative Lisa Philip said this was a new competition on the annual sailing calendar.

“We had an amazing turnout and our sailors were super keen to get on the water and experience their first regatta,” she said.

“This is an incredibly exciting time for our young sailors. We had sailors from as young as eight years and for some of them it is their first competition ever.”
