Chabil Mar is a proud sponsor of the Annual Placencia Regatta, an event where sailing clubs from all over Belize, about 20-25 Opti sailing boats, compete for a ranking Regatta. Organized by the Placencia Sailing Club ( PSC), the event teaches children how to race and sail and will be held in Placencia Village on May 21 and 22.
According to the description on the PSC’s Facebook page, the event helps youths to realize that sailing does not only play a huge part of their rich heritage but the learning, skill, fun and excitement involved in it can help strengthen their mental and physical capabilities as well as improve their leadership skills, self-confidence and self-esteem.
Established on January 2012, the Placencia Sailing Club was founded by Shelly Bradley and Alan Usher of the Belize Sailing Association and Alvin Cabral Jr. and his wife, owners of Placencia’s Belize Sailing Adventures and South Waters Resort.
The race for this year will start on a part of a beach that is located in middle of Tipsy Tuna and Cozy Corner. The spectators of the race are advised to bring binoculars so they can see up-close the exciting action unfolding throughout the race.
Come and join us in supporting all the sailors from various clubs and from all over Belize who will compete for the ranking Regatta.
