Bank renews youth sailing regatta sponsorship

| 20/10/2011

(CISA): For the fifth year in a row, Scotiabank is the title sponsor for the Cayman Islands National Youth Sailing Championship.The two-day regatta, to be held on 22nd and 23rd October 2011, is the most eagerly anticipated event on the Youth sailing calendar. It is open to all sailors under the age of 18 and this year will feature racing in four different classes. The Laser Radial class is for older sailors and is the cross over class to the adult Olympic Laser class. The Optimist class will have two divisions with the Championship fleet and the Green fleet for sailors new to racing, and finally the double handed Pico class which is always hotly contested.

Head Coach Raph Harvey is excited about this year’s event and said, “We now have sailors training every day and the standard has grown to the point where we can set courses in line with International regattas”.

All races will take place on the waters of North Sound in front of the Cayman Islands Sailing Club in Red Bay. Spectators will be able to watch the racing from the balcony at the clubhouse and private motor boats are welcome to view the racing from the water.

All youth sailors with sailing experience are invited to attend the regatta. The races will begin at 1pm each day and there will be an awards ceremony following the racing on Sunday 23rd October. All competitors will receive a t-shirt and there will be prizes for the top sailors in each class.

To register and reserve a boat, please email Raph Harvey at coach@sailing.ky.  Boats are limited and will be available on a first come first served basis.
