Sailing showdown

Arin Kumar
Thursday, June 05, 2014

FIJI will feature in three events at the Oceania Sailing competition that will be held in Noumea, New Caledonia from June 7 to 10.

Organisers are predicting 120 sailors to compete in the event which will have five categories — Optimist, Laser, Hobie 16, Kitesurf and Elliott 6.

"More than 120 sailors from Fiji, Wallis and Futuna, Australia, New-Zealand, and New Caledonia responded to invitations from the Caledonian sailing league and OSAF (Oceania Sailing Federation)," organisers said via a statement.

"Four New Zealanders and actually a Fijian will attempt to climb up the highest steps of the podium.

"16 Laser will sail in fleet: one New Zealander and apparently two Fijians will sail with 13 other North and South Caledonians.

"Laser Standard (for larger gauges-80 kg), Fiji's Robert Hazelman, should monopolise medals.

"In the girls (competition), Lauren Hautier will face the Fijian Naomi Tupou."
