Jonathan  Wight - Last years Green Fleet Champion (265x300).jpg(CISC):  For the sixth year in a row, Scotiabank is the title sponsor for the Cayman Islands National Youth Sailing Championships. The two-day regatta, to be held on 20th and 21nd October 2012, will determine Cayman’s top sailors under the age of eighteen. The championship will be sailed in four different types of sailboats: Laser, Picos, Feva and Optimists. The Optimist division will also include a beginner class for novice racers (Green fleet).  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.

“There has been a resurgence in youth sailing in the Cayman Islands in the last twelve months, and this year it looks like we are going to have the biggest ever turnout of youth sailors for the National Sailing Championship”, said coach Raph. 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 21st October. All competitors will receive a t-shirt and there will be prizes for the top three sailors in each class. There will also be special prizes for the winner of each class.

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