SIMPSON BAY: The Sint Maarten Yacht Club (SMYC) is organizing the 5th edition of the Domino’s Dinghy Inter-school Sailing Championship, which will take place on Saturday, January 15th.
This event is open to all schools on Sint Maarten and St. Maarten. The SMYC informs that no registration fees or additional costs will be charged at the time of registration, thanks to the sponsorship of Domino’s Pizza.
“In this event, young sea enthusiasts team up with all the sailors from their school, and compete between the different schools involved,” says Saskia Revelman, events manager at the Sint Maarten Yacht Club, which is expecting about ten schools.
The race is divided into four categories, Optimist, Laser, RS Zest and RS Quest classes.
The objective of this championship is to win the overall trophy for the best school. Individual trophies will also be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each category.
The stated goal of the event is to promote the sport of sailing throughout the island within the schools, and to recognize the students who compete in this sport.
Through the promotion of this 5th annual inter-school championship, the SMYC wishes to introduce and encourage the practice of sailing sports to young students from both parts of the island. The Notice of Race, with schedules, is available on the SMYC website www.smyc.com/interschool-championship.
