CSA ESTABLISHES LONG TERM CALENDAR†Wednesday 7th October 2015
The Caribbean Sailing Association (CSA) is proud to announce the agreement of the major Caribbean International regattas commitment to a long term schedule in order to better assist owners and crews in their long term planning. We would like to thank all of our member regattas for working with us to achieve this unified effort at making the Caribbean racing circuit better coordinated for the benefit of all.
The 2015-2019 International Calendar can be found at http://caribbean-sailing.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/CSA-International-Regatta-Schedule1.pdf.
Peter Holmberg, President of the CSA, stated that "the CSA calendar committee worked hard with the various events to avoid overlapping event dates. Once this was achieved, the natural next step was getting everyone to buy in to a long term schedule. The upside is for everyone-- the sailors who get to attend more events, the events that get greater attendance and publicity by "owning" their time slot and the islands that get more visitors and the associated revenue. It is a win-win for everyone, and by working together, the entire region will grow."
There are also many regional and local events that take place throughout the year which the CSA also list in their Regattas section of their website, allowing visiting yachtsmen to plan and enjoy the atmosphere around the events.
