Aashim’s Corner:

Like every time this corner speaks straight from my soul giving a picture of what’s happening.”Aamchi Mumbai” and boating seems to be in a state of limbo. We have had yet another boat show and yet a conference. We continue to discuss issues like the lack of a marina, lack of regulations, how the boating industry can be commercially viable for the masses, challenges with customs and excise duty and the like. But from one year to another there is no change. The lack of government interest in developing the waterfront continues to suffocate what could be a major industry generating revenue, employment and tourism. On my side – it has been an exciting summer. I experienced what is really a dream for most yachting enthusiast – got a chance to see the America’s Cup racing. We saw the finals of the World Series – fleet and match racing. It was really a pleasure to be in the Newport ‘Home of the America’s Cup’ and watch the legend Russell Coutts in action. The racing is done around 30 meters from land – close enough to almost feel like you can touch the boats. A truly thrilling experience. There were 14000 spectators there and apart from the thrill of the actual racing the sheer quality of the infrastructure made it a real pleasure to be there. Whether it was the access quality for the racing teams or the well-organized parking, viewing spaces, food and sanitation for such a large crowd – everything was thought off. A far cry from our slippery mossy slipways where you are most likely to break a leg or an arm if you slip even before you step on a boat. The interest in sailing has been up and the sailing school has seen more and more interest. We ran our first YAI course with the new school accreditation and the first batch of Kids went on to then race at the Monsoon regatta – great progress and great work on the kids front. For those of you looking at acquiring a boat for the new season – now is the time to think about it so it would here in time. Our sales teams are standing by to understand your needs and help you look at the options available. Do give us a call. Until the season.
