Schools sailing regatta

| 24/11/2009

(CNS): An annual event to determine Cayman’s top school sailing team, the 2009 RBC School Sailing Championship will take place The regatta, organized and held at the Cayman Islands Sailing Club and National Sailing Centre in Red Bay, was started over ten years ago and has grown to include almost every school in Cayman. In 2008 a junior division was added for students in years 4 to 6, which was won by St. Ignatius, which also took first place the senior division.

Sailing Director, Michael Weber, notes that “this year will be the most competitive event ever. We’ve had teams training since September and I think that it will be a challenge for St. Ignatius to hold on to the title as the top sailing team.”

This year two new schools, North Side Primary and George Town Primary have entered the regatta. Mr Weber said, “These schools are now able to sail competitively because of the time and effort that is put into the school sailing programme by both the schools and the sailing instructors. Again we must thank Royal Bank of Canada for their kind sponsorship.”

the regatta will be held on Friday 27 November from 9am to 3pm. Each school can enter a junior team (years four to six) of ten sailors and one or two senior teams (years seven and above) of five sailors.

Schools must email to enter a team. The registration deadline is November 15th 2009.
