will be hosting an open day this Sunday June 6 from 12noon-5pm to give people
interested in learning how to sail or windsurf an opportunity to try it for
The Sailing Club invites all members
of the public to come and enjoy its facilities for free and give sailing a try.
The Club is ideally situated in Red Bay on the edge of the North Sound, one of
the best natural sailing locations in the Caribbean. The Sound forms one of the
largest and most protected sailing environments available in the Caribbean and
with warm, clear waters it is an ideal place to learn how to sail.
As well as interested adults,
school children are especially encouraged to bring their parents and go for a
sail. The Club will be offering free sailing and windsurfing rentals and will
be taking registration for adult and children’s sailing programmes available
during the summer. There will be food and drinks available.
For sailors keen to race, the
second annual Storm Chaser Regatta, this year sponsored by Red Stripe, will
also be held this weekend on Saturday and Sunday. The Regatta, held on the
first weekend of hurricane season, is open to all dinghies and for the first
time will include catboats.
Sailing Director, Mike Weber, notes
that the beginning of June is the start of a busy summer for the CISC.
“With lighter winds, the summer
season is a great time to learn to sail so we encourage people to give sailing
a try during this time of year.”
Weber also noted that the popular
summer camps will once again take place in July and August.
“Our summer camps are well known
for high quality instruction for young children. Our finest young sailors first
learned to sail during our camps and we encourage parents to register for the
limited number of places.”
The CISC is located in Red Bay.
