Young Sailing Champ

K C Ganapathy from the Tamil Nadu Sailing Association, the current National Optimist Champion will be leaving on the 4th to take part in the sailing championships to be held during the Asian Games in China from 12th to 27th of this month. Studying in Krishnamurthy Foundation’s ‘The School’, he found it difficult to balance school and sailing, so last year he opted for home schooling so that he could concentrate on his sailing. He has spent most of the past year in attending many international regattas and has been consistently improving his performance.

He has so far been coached by Munna Jamal, the TNSA coach, and for the last three months he has been undergoing an intensive training as part of the National Squad, under British coach Peter Conway, appointed by the Yachting Association of India for preparing the Indian sailing contingent for the Asian Games.
