Press Release – San Pedro Sailing Club – July 12, 2011 – A sizable squall rained out the 10 AM lessons yesterday; however, at 4 PM, three undaunted students in their early teens braved threatening skies to complete their first solo sail and the first lesson of this summer’s San Pedro Youth Summer Sailing Program. Of course, pictures speak louder than words, so enjoy the gallery of photos.

The students in them are Corey, Hunter, and Morgain. The boats are Optimists. The three kids progressed very rapidly in yesterday’s 1 1/2 hour lesson. Instructors Andy Milner and Paul McCarthy report that it won’t be long before these three are ready to learn racing.

The San Pedro Youth Summer Sailing Program is put on by the San Pedro Sailing Club and is under the auspices of the Belize Sailing Association.

The lessons take place at Sailsports, on the beach by Caribbean Villas.
