Auto Parts Ltd, importers of Nissan cars in Ghana has for the fourth year running collaborated with Mercury Ghana, dealers of Mercury Outboard Motors and Accessories and Quicksilver Boats to support this year’s Ada Sailing Race.
The annual event which attracts the expats and diplomatic community as well as Ghanaians who love water sport promises to be very exciting this year.
Already the sailors, all of whom are members of the Ada Sailing Race are warming up for this keenly contested race.
Just as it was done last year, fisher folks would be roped into the race in canoe peddling to compete for the AR Accad (the demised chairman of the Accad Group of companies) Award to spice up the programme.
The Group Marketing Manager of Auto Parts Ltd, Mr Chris Tsegah says driving a Nissan is just as fun and adventurous as water sports is.
He said it is the vision of the company to revive water sports and make it just as exciting as the other major sports in Ghana such as Football.
For this year’s sailing race, there are 18 boats taking part (the most ever) with each boat having a crew of 2, but there are a few taking their families on the adventure.
The race is expected to start at the Ada Sailing club. The boats will sail up the Volta River up to 25 kilometres through the Ada Estuary, past divers and fishing villages to Sogakope.
The 18 boats will sail from Sogakope to a private island in the mouth of the estuary with the help of the wind.
Mr Tsegah expects this year’s competition to be more exciting with the boats going upwind often with one hull clean out of the water and the possibility of few cap-sizes.
The boats will finish with a circuit of the private island for the spectators including media to cheer them up, after which the MD of Auto Parts Ltd, Mr Subhi Accad will be joined by other senior management personnel of the company plus other diplomats to present trophies to the winners.
