The Savusavu Junior Sailing Club is continuously conducting sailing classes every Saturday. The clubs confirmed to SUNsports yesterday that they have been accommodating 20 sailors every week.

Savusavu Junior Sailing Club manager and coach, Geoff Taylor said the club sails Lasers and Optimist dinghies along with a number of Savusavu sailors have represented Fiji to the Pacific and Olympic Games as well.

“I have been coaching close to 30 years with the aim to bring up more sailors. The club has the best facilities in Fiji and also provides the best training. The junior sailors are locals and the classes are from 9.30am to 3pm.”

Taylor said one of our finest sailors, Viliame Ratulu, a Year 12 student, is preparing for a sailing competition which will be held in Vanuatu during the long Easter weekend.

“We have been sending our sailors for overseas competition and for this we always raise funds.

“We are thankful to the people of Savusavu and business communities for their support. We hope more people would come forward to assist these sailors live their dream.”

The Savusavu Yacht Club was inaugurated in 1990 and has won the majority of national sailing championships since its inception.
