On Saturday September 22, the first collaborative Learn to Sail program between Kids And The Sea (KATS) and the Royal BVI Yacht Club (RBVIYC) started. This 10-week introduction to sailing and water safety has been made possible by combining the efforts of both organisations which call Nanny Cay their home.
Brian Duff, director of sailing development at the RBVIYC, and Chris Ghiorse, executive director of KATS, have been talking for the past six months about how they could introduce more youth to sailing.
“We wanted to create a program that could reach out and find students interested in learning to sail while, at the same time, providing a very economical solution to enable students to participate. The result is the creation of this program we just started,” said Ghiorse.
