Scotiabank makes it plain sailing

Scotiabank has once again proven its dedication to developing youth sailing in the Cayman Islands.

For the sixth consecutive year Scotiabank is the title sponsor for the Cayman Islands National Youth Sailing Championships.

The two-day regatta, this weekend, will determine Cayman’s top sailors under 18. 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 on Saturday and Sunday 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 Harvey.

All youth sailors with sailing experience are invited to attend the regatta. The races begin at 1pm each day and there will be an awards ceremony following the racing on Sunday 21 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.
