PIA Press Release

Feature: From the highest mountain to Davao Gulf

by Romy Sabaldan

Davao City (22 June) -- For Rey Sumagaysay, one of the most experienced mountain climbers hereabouts, the challenge does not end upon reaching the country’s highest peak of Mt. Apo in the Davao-Cotabato regions.

Sumagaysay heads a mountaineering federation in Mindanao and also runs an outfit called EDGE Outdoors Adventure, the group that teaches and provides the skills and equipment for one to enlarge his vision and feel the freshness of nature..

His group encourages physical fitness using the outdoors from the mountains to the seas.

Being buoyed up by the belief that Davao City is the source of potential talents in adventure racing and kayaking, Sumagaysay looks to the sea this time for another adventure.

“We have the best talents in Davao as far as adventure and kayak racing is concerned,” Sumagaysay asserted during the latest Tuesday forum of the Sports Communicators Organization of the Philippines (Scoop-Davao) of the Royal Mandaya Hotel, Davao City.

On Sunday, July 22, 2007, Sumagaysay’s group is organizing a kayak race among Davao enthusiasts using a 1.5 kilometer stretch off the shore of Times Beach, Matina, this city.

Ten teams in groups of four will be showcasing their prowess using this portable boat which is being propelled by a double-bladed paddle and is reputed to have crossed oceans.

Sumagaysay believes that introducing all sorts of play along the shores is one way of promoting the richness of the Davao Gulf not only in its renewable marine resources but also in water sports such as scuba diving and more recently kayaking. (PIA XI) [top]
