THE final round of Business House Regatta (BHR) this weekend is expected to be the best competition to date.

About 300 individuals paddling for 35 business houses are all geared up and ready to challenge for the title.

Official sponsors, BSP have been impressed with the competition so far and are predicting a tight race to the finish line.

BSP head of marketing Nirdesh Singh said in a statement this was the first year they were sponsoring the regatta competition.

"We are pleased to witness impressive performances from teams and we are encouraged by the public turnout to this event," he said.

"Our sponsorship aligns well with our commitment to the upcoming Pacific Games and our long standing position on healthy living through sports.

"It's a great family event and I would encourage families to come out and enjoy the sport."

Singh said Fiji Outrigger was using the competition as a platform to scout for new talent and to create public interest in the sport.

"BSP will offer personal banking services at the games venue on Saturday at the convenience of players and supporters.

"Customers using these services can also win giveaways throughout the day," he said.

The competition will be on Saturday morning at the USP Marine Science Campus Foreshore at Laucala Bay in Suva.
