Three young sailors from St. Vincent and the Grenadines are preparing to represent their club, Vincy Sailing, and their country at the upcoming O’pen Skiff North American Championships in Augusta, Georgia. 

Kai Marks-Dasent, 13, Lily Punnett, 10, and Joshua Weinhardt, 12, have demonstrated dedication and perseverance as they embark on their competitive journey, the SVG Sailing Association said.

“With contributions from families and fund raising with friends, and the local community, Kai, Lily, and Joshua have worked hard to cover their expenses so they can compete in the championship. 

“Their commitment to the sport of sailing and their determination to excel have been evident as they have balanced their school responsibilities with training sessions, including additional preparation during the Easter school holidays.”

The O’pen Skiff North American Championships, scheduled to take place April 19 to 21, will provide the Vincentian sailors with a platform to showcase their skills and compete against talented young sailors from North America, Europe and New Zealand.
