We need to start with a shout out to everyone that supported such a great youth tennis tournament this weekend. Cate Morris was a rockstar with the 8 & under crowd and Heather Blum was a life saver in the office! Parent volunteers are essential to all our youth programs we can't thank you enough for your involvement. The tournament was a great opportunity for STYC youth players to meet friends from all over St. Thomas, St. John and even the BVI. It was incredible to watch these young players on the courts. Look for full results this week in the Daily News.
Teddy Nicolosi and Amanda Engeman are battling it out in Jensen Beach at C420 midwinters. This 103 boat fleet is extremely competitive with top sailors from all youth fleets meeting here. With one more day of racing you can find results and updates here: http://www.club420.org
Also in Florida this weekend STYC youth sailor alumni Thomas Barrows earned a place at the 2016 Olympics! Barrows, sailing with Joe Morris, will represent the USA in the 49er class. Fellow STYC youth sailing teammate Cy Thompson will be in Rio as well representing ISV in the Laser Class. We will be watching!
Our youngest sailors had great day of Hobie sailing on Saturday! Speaking of Hobie sailing.....did you notice we have a few new Hobie Waves on the beach? Please reach out to Greer and Forrest to see how you and your family can take out these boats! Don't let your kids have all the fun.
