This summer the Barbados Cruising Club will sponsor 5 children from the Pinelands Creative Workshop to take part in the Barbados Sail Training Program that is hosted by the Barbados Yacht Club in association with LRN 2 Sail Barbados, the Barbados Sailing Association and the Barbados Optimist Dinghy Association.
The Barbados Cruising Club is keen to support the sailing program and is looking forward to getting kids out on the water who may not normally choose sailing as a sporting option. Commodore Mike Krimholtz says:
‘Sailing is a great sport, very demanding both physically and mentally. Furthermore, it is a skill that will last a lifetime and open up opportunities for careers and travel that you might not have thought possible. We are very happy to get kids out sailing, especially to help those who can’t afford to do it or wouldn’t have thought of it as an option.’
