INTERNATIONAL SAILING EVENTS

IODA WORLDS 2019

We held 2 IODA Asian Championships in 2012 & 2016. Based on the experience gained from these events we decided to BID For the IODA Worlds 2019. To do so our Representatives went to Thailand to participate in the Bidding Meeting. On this occasion 2 Asian Countries, China & Sri Lanka were among 4 Bidders. Therefore to avoid a competition between 2 Asian Countries we withdrew giving a place to China. Unfortunately the place for an Asian country was filled by Antigua & China lost by 3 votes.

IODA ASIAN 2018

A team of 6 Sailors & 3 Officials represented our country at the IODA Asian 2018 held in Myanmar.

IODA ASIAN & OCEANIAN CHAMPIONSHIP 2019 – OMAN

A team of 10 sailors & 3 officials participated at the IODA Asian & Oceanian Championship held in Oman & we are happy to mention that one of them won the bronze for the Silver Group and received a prize. More than anything the 10 kids gained good exposure.
