Navi Mumbai Yacht Club With Be Trendsetter - Says President Of The Club Mla Sandeep Naik

The Tendulkars, Kartikeyans, Sanias and Sainas have become sports icons that have boosted sports in India like never before. But there still are a few sports where we are yet to make a mark and water sports is one of them. The main reason for this is that there is no infrastructure of facilities available for aspiring sailors to learn this sport. However, this week Navi Mumbai became the first among neighboring cities Mumbai, Thane and Raigad to start its own Yacht Club. The club will aim training sailing enthusiasts for international level sports like Olympics.

Water sports are one of the most exciting forms of sports around the world. It’s one sport that seems to be celebrating the bounties of nature like water resources. However, to make a world class player in the sport, there is more than just a beautiful coast that you need – excellent infrastructure, equipments and professional training are the other requisites to name a few. Not to forget it involves a whole lot of investment as well. The intricacies of promoting the sports are that; there are no yacht clubs in this region to make training in water sports available for sailing enthusiasts. It is here that Navi Mumbai has become “a first again” by beginning the “Navi Mumbai Yacht Club” – a venture of Thane Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik’s vision and his younger son MLA Sandeep Naik’s efforts.
