International Power Boat Association gives special licences to several Lankans


Seven Sri Lankans have been granted special licenses by the International Power Boat Association. Accordingly, they will be given the oppurtunity to particiapte in future international power boating competitions.

A training camp organised by the International Power Boat Association and the Lanka Power boat Association was held in Bentota.

The training camp was inaugurated on the April 9 under the auspices of the Chief trainer of the International Power Boat Association John Puddyfoot.

The players were educated on the theoretical and practical aspects of the game.

Seven Sri Lankans were allowed to participate in Power Boat competitions while special license was granted after the training camp.

The license grants the opportunity to organise power boat competitions, to judge tournaments, participate in tournaments as well as train other players.

Sri Lanka received membership of the International Power Boat Association three years ago. However, power boat tournaments could not be held due to the lack of licences.
