BSP Supports Canoeing

The Fiji Outrigger Bank South Pacific (BSP) Businesshouse Regatta Series 2016 starts on Saturday at the USP Foreshore at Suva Point.

BSP is the major sponsor for the event for the third year in a row.

BSP is entering two teams joining 33 teams from more than 25 companies and organisations.

All the teams will be aiming to topple the Pacific Community (SPC) team who have now won the overall trophy two years in a row. Business professionals, experienced and not-so-experienced male and female paddlers families and friends will all gather again this yearat the USP Foreshore to show what they are made of and enjoy a day of fun.

350 competitors from 35 teams will have their turn lining up on the start line in the hope of being the first across the finish line to grab some glory and bragging rights.

Fiji Outrigger has held the businesshouse regattas for eight consecutive years.

Although it may be a minority sport in Fiji, outrigger canoeing is deeply rooted in the culture of the Pacific Island countries.

Fiji Outrigger is proud to continue this cultural tradition by supporting its affiliated members and clubs through sponsorship, fundraising activities and raising awareness about this unique Pacific sport to youth, adults and communities throughout Fiji.

For business houses it is a chance to have some fun on the water, while also engaging in a valuable team building activity which also promotes health and fitness. The final regatta will be held on August 20.
