NATIONAL SAILING ACADEMY NEWSLETTER - ISSUE #1Monday 18th July 2011
Dear Friends, Sponsors – and potential Sponsors,
It is a little over one year since our official launch in June 2010 – attended by both the Governor General (who is the Patron of the Academy) and the Prime Minister, Hon. Baldwin Spencer, amongst other guests, sponsors, schools etc.
The mission in 2010 was to raise enough funds to get us off the ground, and into the water!!
Thanks to the generosity of the yachting community and some local sponsors, we were able to:
1. Form the Non-Profit Organisation with a board of Volunteers.
2. Create our website, logo, email and other infrastructure
3. Produce information/advertising materials
4. Purchase 12 new Optimist dinghies – the worldwide standard for junior beginners
5. Fund 150 courses of weekly swimming lessons – commenced September 2010
6. Fund 150 courses of weekly sailing lessons – commenced September 2010 Read more.
