Mysore/Mysuru: Day three of the National Regatta Competition witnessed speeches by various senior sailors in the backwaters of Krishna Raja Sagar (KRS) Dam this morning.

Meanwhile, the event received a boost when Yaduveer Krishnadatta Chamaraja Wadiyar of the erstwhile Mysore royal family, visited the spot to witness the ongoing activities. Speaking to SOM, Yaduveer said this is a most adventurous water sport which had failed to get its due importance in the country. The backwaters of KRS is an ideal place to hold this championship. “I will appeal to people to see and promote this sport”, he added.

The sailors favoured simplified rules for the promotion of this sport. The club must target youngsters to create interest in sailing. Captain Aravind Sharma and others were present.
