The Fiji Yachting Association has established a grassroots sailing programme which will be conducted every Saturday at the six clubs around the country.
Association Secretary Nevel Koop says they have started their programme in few clubs and hope to extend it.
“We started through the Laucala Bay Club and Suva now has a learner programme for children and you can also go down to the Suva Yacht Club in Walu Bay, Savusavu is very strong in teaching children in sailing and we’re now starting to create programme in Denarau and Pac Harbor and there’s a lit bit going on in Vuda Marina in the west.”
Koop adds the programme aims at young talent from eight years and over to build their knowledge and skills in water safety while at sea.
The free sailing classes start at 10 am every Saturday at the Savusavu Yacht Club, Laucala Bay, and Royal Yacht Club in Suva, Vuda Marina and Denarau in the West.
