Club offers opportunity to try sailing for free

| 31/05/2010

(CNS): The Cayman Islands Sailing Club (CISC) says it will be hosting an open day this Sunday 6 June from noon-5pm to give people interested in learning how to sail or windsurf an opportunity to try it for free. Aside from the fact that the North Sound provides one of the best natural protected sailing locations in the Caribbean, June is said to be a great time to learn to sail. CISC sailing Director, Mike Weber said with lighter winds the beginning of June presents a great opportunity for novices to give the sport a try and is encouraging young and old to come out next weekend and test the waters.

 
The club is inviting all members of the public to come and enjoy its facilities for free and give sailing a try. The Club is situated in Red Bay on the edge of the North Sound which forms one of the largest and most protected sailing environments available in the Caribbean and with its warm, clear waters it is an ideal place to learn how to sail.
 
As well as interested adults, school children are especially encouraged to bring their parents and go for a sail.
 
The Club will be offering free sailing and windsurfing rentals and will be taking registration for adult and children’s sailing programmes available during the summer. There will be food and drinks available.
 
For sailors keen to race, the second annual Storm Chaser Regatta, this year sponsored by Red Stripe, will also be held this weekend on Saturday and Sunday. The regatta, held on the first weekend of hurricane season, is open to all dinghies and for the first time will include catboats.
 
Sailing Director, Mike Weber, notes that the beginning of June is the start of a busy summer for the CISC.  “With lighter winds, the summer season is a great time to learn to sail so we encourage people to give sailing a try during this time of year,” he said
 
Weber added that the popular summer camps will once again take place in July and August. “Our summer camps are well known for high quality instruction for young children. Our finest young sailors first learned to sail during our camps and we encourage parents to register for the limited number of places.”
 
The CISC is located in Red Bay. Take Selkirk Rd, just past Hurley Supermarket and follow the CISC signs.
