UAC of Nigeria Plc’s flagship sports event tagged, UAC Trophy Race will make a return on Saturday, May 27 after a three-year hiatus at the Lagos Yacht Club.
With Sailing still a relatively unknown sport in Nigeria, the objectives of the event was to help create more awareness and as well as strengthen the partnership/relationship between UAC and the LYC which dated back many decades.
The UAC Trophy Race had evolved into a foremost recreational sailing championship in the country and bacome a converging point for the best yachtsmen who compete for laurels in three different categories Hobie, Lightning and Mixed Monohull with participants turning out in large numbers, and the 2017 edition promises to be even bigger.
By bringing back the sailing championship, UAC of Nigeria Plc is once again demonstrating her commitment to the development of recreational sports in Nigeria. The company through her Group Managing Director, Larry Ettah, had previously assured that they would continue to support sailing as part of her efforts to develop the game in Nigeria.
“Ours is an organization that projects activities that add values to life. Sailing is one sporting event that engenders better quality of life. It is also a game in which a few management lessons are drawn.”
