First Solo Sail
Today’s Update From San Pedro Sailing Club
A sizeable 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. The attached pictures speak louder than words. 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 Belize, on the beach by Caribbean Villas Resort.
