Grenada Sailing Week 2014
January 30 2014Website: www.grenadasailingweek.com
It's definite – the dates for the next Grenada Sailing Week will be 30 Jan to 4 Feb 2014.
Starting with the Skippers' Briefing on Thursday 30 January, the format will be similar to that of the 2013 edition – 2 days of racing, a mid regatta lay day, followed by 2 more days of racing, giving serious sailors a series to get their teeth into, visiting sailors some time to explore Grenada and of course plenty of nights to party.
It is intended that the 5 days starting from the last Thursday in January will be the ongoing time slot on the Caribbean racing calendar for this start of the season event, which has the sanction of the Grenada Sailing Association and the Caribbean Sailing Association.
Grenada Sailing Week Board members who got the regatta up and going last year – Marc DeCaul (Chairman), Richard Szyjan, Mike Bingley and Patrick Brathwaite, will continue for the 2014th edition. Joining them this year is Shawn Jardine, experienced racing and cruising sailor who, since joining Island Water World and settling in Grenada in 2011, has demonstrated his commitment to the Grenada sailing community, both professionally and personally.
The 2013 edition drew a creditable 29 entries and succeeded beyond expectations, despite the very short time frame for preparation. Using the lessons learned from the first event, this lean and keen board, with the support of the GSW Action Group and committed sponsors, aims to build an even better Grenada Sailing Week in 2014. So diarize these dates, make your travel plans and before you know it you will be Sailing de Spice again!
