The Ninoy Aquino Regatta in Subic Bay
Sep 04, 2013

SUBIC BAY FREEPORT - The Saturday Afternoon Gentlemen Sailing (SAGS) Club held the annual Ninoy Aquino Regatta last Aug. 31 to Sept.1, 2013 as homage to the Philippine's national heroes in the sailing mecca Subic Bay. The event was conducted in conjunction with The Lighthouse Marina Resort and Watercraft Ventures Inc.

"Competitive yacht racing in Subic has taken off over the last few years. This is a sport steeped in history and passion, and it is with this passion that we are committed to the development of sailboat racing in the Asia Pacific region," explained by Commodore Jun Avecilla, SAGS co-founder, Selma Star C! Calibre owner/skipper and The Lighthouse Marina Resort president.

After two sunny days of minimal breeze for the participating sailors, Avecilla's Selma Star C! Calibre finished first place overall, followed by Harry Taylor together with veteran sailor Mr. Joe Hagidorn in Irresistible in second place and Selma with Ricky Sandoval as iskipper as third placer.

Fellowship among skippers and crew members, as well as additional SAGS members resulted into a festive gathering. Adding flair to the awarding and socials was a nautical-themed welcome party and Hawaiian luau.

Subic Bay has notably evolved into not only an important port and industrial zone in the Philippines and Asia, but also a premier tourist destination. It has become a most ideal spot for water sports such as parasailing, kayaking, jet skiing and most specially, yacht racing. (30)
