We are pleased and excited to invite all schools to participate in “The 2nd Annual Domino’s Interschool Dinghy Sailing Championship 2018”, sponsored by Domino’s Pizza to be held at the Sint Maarten Yacht Club on Saturday, October 13th 2018, starting at 12:30!
This competition is open to all schools on the Island and there is no entry fee or cost involved, thanks to the sponsorship by Domino’s. The SMYC will be hosting the event.
After a successful first edition, we invite every school to send one team. 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 Vision 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.)
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 2nd annual interschool sailing event, we hope to encourage and introduce as many young students on St. Maarten to sailing.
Registration of teams must be done by October 5th, 2018.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.
