A J22 Ladies Helm was held on Oct. 16, in mixed conditions. Three races had been scheduled for the afternoon; the last race was called off due to lightning.

Eva Hider and Allena Rankine were two of the Cayman Islands Sailing Club youth women who participated.

Ciao won, followed by Calima, Loca Loki and Yahoo.


Water Authority-Cayman Youth Sailing Championship

The 2016 Water Authority Youth Nationals was held earlier this month at the Cayman Islands Sailing Club, with local and visiting sailors.

During the first day there were light winds and overcast skies for the first of three scheduled races. Uncooperative weather brought the sailors back to the club. A short time later they were sent out, but flat waters fizzled out the last race completely.

On the second day, there were 12 knots and five completed races.

Organizers thanked all volunteers who contributed time and effort, and sponsor Water Authority-Cayman.
