Event Wrap Up & Medal Ceremony

Curtains were brought down on the final day of the India International Regatta 2015 and ASAF Youth Sailing Cup 2015 - 16.

The Guests of Honor included Dr Malav Shroff, President ASAF, Rear Admiral Alok Bhatnagar, Flag Officer Tamil Nadu & Puducherry, IG SP Sharma, Commander Coast Guard, TN & Puducherry, Mr. S.N.Subramanyam, Deputy MD of Larsen and Toubro and Dr Sylendra Babu, IPS, Additional Director General of Police of the Coastal Security Group.

Awards for the winners of the SF by Sonata IIR 2015 were given away, as also those of the YAI Youth National Championship, that was conducted in parallel with this regatta. Apart from the medals, winners were awarded watches from the Ocean series of Sonata watches by the presenting sponsor of the event, Titan.

The Green Fleet of Optimists were the only ones who raced on the final day to play catch up on the 1 day of racing missed earlier. They had a fabulous day of racing on flat waters and 8 to 12 knot winds inside the harbour, and finished 3 races. They had the opportunity to see exactly what competitive racing is like with the Jury going out on water and flagging many of the kids for various n water infringements, something young sailors just starting off their sailing journey rarely get to experience in India. There were many learnings to be had and the little sailors came off much the better for the experience.

We look forward to welcoming many more sailors in the event next year as they head out to prepare for the next leg of the ASAF Youth Cup to be held in Hong Kong in February 2016. Indian sailors vying to hold on to their podium spots at the ASAF Youth Cup will be last year’s winners Chitresh Thatha, Aniketh Rajaram and Naveen Kumanan, all from the TNSA.
