‘Hyderabad Sailing Week’ will be conducted at the Hussainsagar Lake from June 22 to July 02. The 2016 Edition of Hyderabad Sailing Week will be a landmark event for the Laser Class Association of India as the competition graduates from Laser Class to a Multi Class event. For the first time the event will include all Senior & Olympic class boats sailing in the country like 470, RS: X, Hobie 16 and Enterprise class along with the most popular Laser class sailing in all three versions.

Lieutenant-General Gurmukh Singh, President Laser Class Association of India (LCAI), said on Monday, “Hyderabad Sailing Week-2016 is an important milestone for LCAI because for the first time we shall be seeing a Multiclass Championship”.

Top national level sailors will be competing in the event, many of whom will go on to compete in the Asian Games, World Championships & Olympics.

Major-General Sanjeev Khanna, Vice Commodore, EMESA, a national medalist himself, said, “This year we shall be seeing a record number of participants and the figure is expected to go beyond 200, which will be first ever for any senior class in the country”.

The LCAI was founded in 1986 with a view to promoting sailing in the country. Hyderabad Sailing Week is an annual feature organized by the LCAI. The EME Sailing Association was formed in 1964. The sailing association has produced a number of medal winners both at national international levels.

In the coming weeks we can expect the picturesque Hussainsagar lake to be abuzz with Sailing activities filled with more than 200 different type of boats.

A Green Brigade Walkathon is being organized to generate awareness of Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan coinciding with sailing week.
