The SMYC will be hosting the event. After a successful first and second edition, we invite you to send one team representing your school. This team can have as many students who can sail. Every student will have an equal opportunity to help sail their school to victory! This includes all students who currently know how to sail ages 7 to 18 and who have some racing experience.
Racing will be divided into 4 classes:
Optimist Class: ages 7-15 (1 person)
Laser: ages 12-18 (1 person)
Laser Pico: ages 7-15 (1-2 persons)
RS Quest Class: ages 12-18 (2 persons)
Boys and Girls will compete against each other. Individual trophies will be awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each class. Overall team trophies will be awarded to the top 3 schools based on points scored. (A Notice of Race with the scoring explained in detail will follow in the next couple of weeks.) and an overall winner will get a their team name on our Perpetual Domino's trophy.
Our aim is to promote the sport of sailing on our island within the schools and to recognize those students who compete in this exciting sport. Through promotion of this 3rd annual interschool sailing event, we hope to encourage and introduce as many young students on St. Maarten to sailing.
