SEPANGGAR: Parents are encouraged to cultivate their children’ interests in water sports activities especially in sailing from an early age.
Sabah Minister of Community Development and Consumer Affairs, Datuk Jainab Ahmad Ayid, said an early exposure to water sports activities will develop their interests and help mould their character as a more confident, disciplined, and appreciative of the environment.
“Water sports are one of the healthy activities that can be practiced by everyone in the community,” she said when met after launching the 5th Navy Regatta Open competition at Navy Yacht Club, Pengkalan TLDM.
About 60 participants aged between five to fifteen years old from five sailing clubs are competing in the three categories contested in the competition, which are Optimist, Int 470, and Laser. – SayangSabah
