The CISC especially encourages schools to enter teams.

The popular summer camps are run throughout July and August. Each two-week session is open for children between the ages of 5-16 years. Registration has already started.

Cayman Islands News, Grand Cayman Island Sports News, Cayman Islands Sailing ClubMichael Weber, CISC sailing director, noted that the summer season is a great time to learn how to sail and windsurf. “With lighter winds and drier weather, May and June are great months to try the sports.”

Weber also noted that the success of Race Cayman has created momentum in terms of developing its racing team. “One thing that we learned from the regatta was that we have the perfect facility for our young people to become very competitive sailors. We are now focusing on qualifying for the next Youth Olympic Games in 2014, meaning that children ages 11-12 years can begin sailing now with the hope of representing Cayman in four years.”
