BVI TEAM WIN CSA CARIBBEAN DINGHY CHAMPIONSHIPS
Friday 23rd October 2015


Optimist racing in San Juan Bay during the Caribbean Dinghy Championships held on October 16 - 18.

The Caribbean Sailing Association’s Caribbean Dinghy Championships were held in San Juan this past weekend from October 16th - 18th with entries from the four islands of St Thomas, Puerto Rico, St Maarten & British Virgin Islands. The event was hosted by the Sailing School of Club Nautico de San Juan. Nine windward/leewardraces where held in the calm waters of San Juan Bay over two days with a very interesting scoring format. Each island fielded a team of five boats types: 4-crew IC24s, 2-crew 420s and single handed Laser Standard, Laser Radial and Optimist. The total points for each team was the sum of the scores of each of their sailors. The overall winner with victories in three of the five classes was the BVI team coached by Taylor Penwell. This is a repeat victory for this promising sailing club, having won the Caribbean Dinghy Championships in 2013.

The racers had a great time and the team scoring format offered an interesting twist to the Championship. The CSA has made a solid commitment to Youth Sailing Development and this event helped move us in the right direction.”
