Indian Navy to undertake Sail Parades and Regattas to popularise sailing sports
The step is seen as a method to promote sailing in India, something that has previously never been done on a large scale
The Indian Navy is set to take concrete efforts to popularise and improve the standard of sailing sports in India. In a recent initiative under the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, the Navy will conduct sailing regattas at certain port cities across India. Southern Naval Command will be the front-runner in organising the entire event under the Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav.
