From Antonio F. Sanpere

In St. Croix we encourage boats to take kids onboard during regattas. This past March, Stan Joines bought my J/36 and we raced with six teenagers and won both the Rolex in St. Thomas and the BVI International regatta. The look in their faces on the podium was out of this world. The crowd was non-stop applauding. Stan is a high school teacher and has always raced with teens from his school. We are doing our bit to continue with this great example. During the international regatta, we allow one teen in any boat not counting towards crew/ weight maximum.
