KPMG Youth Winter Championship 2017 set for this weekend

This coming weekend, April 8 and 9, the KPMG is set to host its Youth Winter Championship. 

 

This is the third year of KPMG’s undertaking as the proud sponsor of Bahamas National Sailing School’s Annual Junior Winter Regatta. Held annually in March/April, the time of year it always blows, this regatta is guaranteed to serve up fun and challenging sailing. 

 

A quick look at the weather channel indicates this year to be a bit of an exception as the forecast is for moderate wind conditions on Saturday and Sunday – perfect sailing conditions for all. 

 

With over 50 sailors between the ages eight and 18, from around The Bahamas and Turks and Caicos, participating in the Optimist Dinghy, Junior Sunfish and Junior Laser classes, this is considered one of our major events. 

 

Top ranked sailors Tristan Eldon, Paul de Souza, Spencer Cartwright, Cochise Burrows, Brendan Sands (Abaco), Melisha Higgins (Harbour Island) and Paloma Cartwright (Long Island) will provide great competition for all wannabe champions.   

 

The venue is the Nassau Yacht Club and racing will take place on Montagu Bay all day Saturday and Sunday morning, so come on down to Montagu Beach to see how well these youngsters handle their boats. 

 

Witness first hand the fun these kids have at this sport which is available to all young Bahamians, in which participation is made possible by the support of our sponsors like KPMG. If you like what you see please contact Bahamas Sailing Association (bsajrsailing@gmail.com) regarding junior sailing programs in The Bahamas, including Summer Sailing Camps.  

 

A big thank you to KPMG for all your support with this event and our year round sailing.
