Last week we were preparing for a few interviews with CBS Sports. While they are on island for Paradise Jam they are going to highlight sailing as a sport where Virgin Island athletes excel. We discovered some pretty impressive facts about the last ten years when you put them all together.
*4 podium fleet race finishes at International Opti Regattas
(North Americans, South Americans, Worlds)
*6 High School National wins. (3 fleets race, 2 single handed, 1 team race)
*12 Collegiate National Wins
(2 single handed, 2 Match Race, 4 team race, 4 fleet race all since 2007)
These are amazing statistics for any yacht club, but from our tiny club with 350 members these numbers are truly phenomenal! Thank you for continuing to support this program, the staff and volunteers!
We will have the winter calendar out after the Thanksgiving Holiday. Please MARK YOUR CALENDAR for January 8th. We will have registration and our Youth Sailing Recognition Night for our current sailors competing in regattas.
