Press Release – San Pedro Sailing Club – August 26, 2014
On August 16 and 17, the San Pedro Sailing Club hosted an International Invitational Regatta in the beautiful waters off Boca del Rio Park. Sailors from the United States, Mexico and Belize came together in the spirit of sportsmanship and enjoyed healthy competition while learning from one another and developing new and lasting friendships. The course was an Olympic Triangle Course. Sailors sailed four races on Saturday and two on Sunday with one drop rule. The best of five races were accumulated for the lowest point system.
The final results of the regatta show its true International flair! In the top 5 was a sailor from the USA, 2 sailors from Mexico, and 2 sailors from San Pedro Sailing Club! Congratulations to 1st place BRYCE TONE, 2nd Place Magdalena Brito, 3rd Place LAURA ZUNIGA, 4th Place JERDON ANDERSON and 5th place DAVIN PUC.
In total, 24 sailors participated in the Regatta and associated social events; 1 from the USA, 4 from Mexico, 5 from Caye Caulker Sailing Club, 2 from Corozal Bay Sailing Club, 1 from Belize City Sea Scouts and 11 representing San Pedro Sailing Club. All sailors were accompanied by their coaches, commodores and/or team supporters. A special thank you goes out to Daniele Gracis, Mexico, for inspiring us to hold an International Invitational after two of our sailors participated in an Invitational in Mexico. A HUGE thank you goes to Karen Tone, USA, for taking a chance on us and coming all the way from Florida with her sailing son, Bryce. We are so looking forward to continuing to sail, learn and develop as sailors and global citizens.
