Sports plays a crucial role in our children's lives and sailing is probably one of the best examples out there!

Having to face the uncertainty of nature in open waters will certainly be a challenge for any new sailor to take on the sport. As tough as it may sound, if the youngster manages to overcome his fears and take on this challenge with proper guidance and support, it will lead to many possibilities of expanding their character.

Lessons of discipline, respect and responsibility are some of the key things they will pick up along this journey which will play a crucial role later on in their lives. Have a listen to what the Myanmar sailors have to say about the sport in their own words and what sailing has brought to them apart from just having fun. This video is a message to any new parent, teacher or kid that might be interested in taking on the sport of sailing. It is meant to communicate how sports can bring a positive change to any youngster.
