Young sailors take part in Commodores' Cup Regatta

MANILA, Philippines – Sixteen young sailors aged 9-15 participated in the dinghies competition (optimist class) during the recently concluded 8th Commodore’s Cup Regatta in Subic Bay Freeport Zone.

The young sailors, mostly from Cavite and Paranaque City, were trained in Manila for three months by Philippine Sailing Association coach Medy Fidel.

This summer, the training program will be expanded in Subic Bay wherein prospective sailors will come from Olongapo City and nearby towns of Zambales.

Hong Kong’s Frank Pong, Asia’s top sailor and Asian Yachting Grand Prix Skipper of the Year, is among the leading supporters of sailing in the Philippines.

He recently donated new sails for the training boats of the Saturday Afternoon Gentlemen Sailing Club to help jump start the sailing program in Subic.
