Plans are falling into place for the Caribbean Dinghy Championships which will be hosted by Sint Maarten Yacht Club this year from October 7-9. The Club is excited about the event and looks forward to welcoming teams from around the region. Five teams are registered to date including Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados, BVI, Anguilla and of course St. Maarten as host country. Antigua Yacht Club has also expressed interest and will be holding qualifiers in an effort to put a team together. Ariel, Sint Maarten Yacht Club Manager, tells us that trophies have been ordered, t-shirts are being printed, goodie bags for all competitors have been stuffed and weekend meals will be sponsored, allowing for an all-inclusive competitor and coach/parent entry fee. It's not too late to express interest for this event that will be restricted to six teams but time is running out. More information is available in the Notice of Race which can be found here or by contacting Neil Maher at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks to the Sint Maarten Yacht Club team for helping to make this a memorable and exciting event for dinghy sailors from around the region.
