The 9th Royal Colombo Yacht Club (RCYC) in association with Cinnamon Hotels & Resorts recently hosted the Sailing Regatta since 9th consecutive year. This is one of the biggest annual events in Sri Lanka as far as sailing is concerned. It was recently held by Cinnamon at Trinco Blu. The competition this time features a good record of around 49 boats with most skilled crews of the island in addition to sailing enthusiasts aspiring for a victorious spot. The competition was held in one of the beautiful beaches of Sri Lanka situated between Trincomalee and Nilaveli. The regatta consisted of boat races where were classified into 3 categories, the single handed under 15, the single handed laser class and the 2 man enterprise class.
It was indeed spectacular to see 49 sailboats in the water all at the same time. The management was quite pleasing to the sailors’ performances and how they continued to keep at it regardless of shifting winds and tough weather conditions.
