Arugam Bay back to life event

THURSDAY, December 18, 2008

One of the most sought after destinations in Sri Lanka, Arugam Bay, will once again burst with life when it will host the international Windsurf­ing Championships and beach carnival next July.

 Arugam Bay last hosted an international event of this magnitude in 2004 and it was a major intentional tourist attraction. By hosting this event Arugam Bay will once again enter to the inter­national tourist map giving value to the destination.

Managing Director, Crys­tal Holidays (Pvt) Ltd, Wasana Hettiarachchi said that his company has tied up with an UK based company to host this event. "We have already spoken to the Sri Lankan  airlines  and the Tourism Authority and they have pelaged their support to assist us," he said.

The event will also bring in over 200 foreign visitors to the venue and hotels around would get an oppor­tunity to earn extra revenue. The foreign press too would be in large numbers that would give the much-need­ed additional exposure to the country.

He   said   that   Sports tourism is gaining populari­ty and this is why he is tak­ing a lead to promote the event. "A Veterans English Cricket tour too is on the cards for next year," he added.

Director UK, Professional Surfing Tour, Dave Reed said Arugam Bay is one of the best locations in the world to host surfing events. "We have spoken to leading Surfers who are ready to come to Sri Lanka," he said. These surfers are from Aus­tralia, South Africa, London, Germany and other Euro­pean countries," he said.

Since there is peace in the region the venue should be promoted more aggressively to the international market. The contest will also offer prize money totaling British Pounds 5,000.
