Apr 23 2007 Ontario Sailors Train in Cayman
Grand Cayman (17 March 2007) The Cayman Islands Sailing Club (CISC) has arranged a youth sailing exchange programme with a club in
A team of four teenaged sailors from the Whitby Yacht Club spent their spring break last week training on Byte CII sailboats at the Red Bay-based club.
In return, CISC will send five young Byte sailors to Toronto to train with the Whitby team and travel to the Fruit Bowl training regatta in Montreal at the end of July.
The conditions in the North Sound last week proved almost perfect for Byte sailing.
We had 15-20 knot winds with warm temperatures and sunny skies, said Mike Weber, CISCs Sailing Director. This made for excellent training conditions and a great way for us to showcase our outstanding small boat sailing conditions. It is our hope that more teams will use our facilities in the future.
The Cayman segment of the programme had two primary purposes: for the Canadians to use the CISC facility for off-season training; and for the Canadians to give Caymans sailors competition.
These aims will be reciprocated when CISC dispatches its team to
in the summer.
