CYS Supports Youth Sailing | Morrell Wins National Schools Title | Lettsome Secures Win for Tabor Academy
The Royal BVI Youth Sailing Programme would like to thank the Charter Yacht Society (CYS) for their very generous donation.
Sailors were joined by Janet Oliver, Executive Director of the CYS after a Saturday training session to receive a donation from the 2016 Charter Yacht Show.
Oliver explained to the sailors that many of the crews working in the crewed yacht industry began their sailing careers just as the young BVI sailors are doing.
"The CYS is very pleased to be able to make this donation to the BVI Youth Sailing Programme" said Oliver.
"It is a natural fit for us to invest in young sailors and for so many of our crews this type of programme was an important part of their lives and sailing has now become their livelihood. We have no doubt that many of the sailors training with the Yacht Club will be making headlines in the future or working in the industry."
$10 from the registration fee from each yacht and broker is donated to BVI Youth Sailing so this donation is a valuable contribution to the programme.
Thank you to the CYS from all at the Royal BVI Yacht Club and Youth Sailing Programme.
