To continue building up the San Pedro Sailing Club (SPSC), members have been conducting sailing activities every weekend at their base off the waters at Banyan Bay Suites’ beachfront. The Club is looking forward to providing free instructional sailing lessons to Belizeans, particularly those from the ages of eight to 15. Adults are also welcome to come out and enjoy some sailing every weekend.
One of the Club members shared that the revival of the sailing group is optimistic, and they are hoping to get back to those competitions they once mastered in the past. In the meantime, they have been conducting sailing activities using Optimists and Hobie Cat boats.
At Banyan Bay Suites, the SPSC will continue to provide weekly sailboat racing on Saturdays and Sundays, whenever weather permits. In a joint effort with the Banyan Bay Suites, the Club still hopes to grow its kiteboard and windsurfing programs as well to have a greater outreach within the local community. The SPSC and its directors would like to invite interested persons to visit them at their sailing center right on the beach by the Banyan Bay Suites on weekends.
