Here is our San Pedro fundraising page for our sailing club at Caribbean Villas. The club provides free sailing to the youth of San Pedro and we are now raising funds to send one of our sailors to a large internstional event. Please make a donation if you can. Every dollar helps and enables the sailing club to provide training and provide seaworthy equipment. Sailing is not only a fun recreational hobby, there are professional avenues that can be followed too. With the independence, confidence and physical challenges that sailing provides, these kids are off to a good start in life.
For the first time ever Belize will be sending a team of youth sailors to the Optimist North America (OPTINAM) http://www.optinam2015.org/
event which will be held in July on the Caribbean Island of Antigua. One of the sailors who has qualified to represent Team Belize is Kevin Velasquez. At the tender age of 13 Kevin already has a Belize national championship under his belt. In the team selection regatta Kevin came first in all 6 races! He will be a great representative for Belize. In order to assist Kevin on his way to this exciting event we need some financial assistance. Please go to the Go fund Me link and make a donation. Every dollar will help us realize this bench mark goal. Please share the link with your friends and know that we truly appreciate and thank you from the bottom of our hearts. http://www.gofundme.com/v4pf7ak
