"Iumi Water Sports Park" at DC Park is finalising preparations to host the Pacific Games sailing competition next month.
Games Organizing Committee (GOC) Sailing Sport Competition Manager, Patrick Maelaua said their team had already signed up 25 volunteers and divided them into two groups.
He said the first group will be assisting on-shore activities, while the second group will be on the water with all participating teams.
Mr. Maelaua said that as part of this, there is also a planned sailing competition from the 28th to the 29th of this month at DC Park, sponsored by major sponsors Our Telekom in collaboration with the sailing association, the National Hosting Authority, the sport institute, and GOC.
“This competition will see all local teams competing and to test their preparedness level and familiarity with the new water environment setting. 15 local technical officials and 2 local results reporting persons will be engaged for the upcoming competition and the main Pacific Games,” the sailing competition manager said.
Sailing sports during the Pacific Games will commence on November 20th–25th for the 1st series presentation and the 2nd series presentation from November 27th–December 2nd.
DC Water Sports Park will also host open water swimming and Va’a.
Touch rugby and archery sports will also be hosted at the park’s playing grounds.
