Published on October 19th, 2016
The Caribbean Sailing Association (CSA) will hold its Annual Conference on October 21 to 23 to discuss the sport of sailing and how the economic benefits it brings to the region can continue to be improved. Held on the west coast of Antigua, the event expects to attract regatta organisers, CSA rating rule measurers, race officials, Member National Authorities, yacht club managers, and youth sailing coordinators from around the Caribbean region.
Included in the impressive list of presenters are America’s Cup sailor and Olympic medallist Peter Holmberg, David Pritchard of Gill North America, Tim Cross, Word Sailing Training and Development Nominated Member, Robyn Albritton of Sailors for the Sea, and Pascale Sold, Brand Manager of Remy Cointreau Caribbean, as well as other members of the CSA. Two Antiguan young sailors, Jules Mitchell and Vincent Anfi, will also take place in a session discussing youth sailing.
Attending delegates represent a total of 19 countries and take this opportunity to network with like-minded industry professionals.
“The CSA Annual Conference has become a must-do event on the calendar of a large number of yachting industry professionals from across the region,” notes CSA President Kathy Lammers. “It provides a perfect opportunity for us to gather as a group in one location to discuss everything from trends in race management to sustainability, marketing, sponsorship, MNA and World Sailing hot topics and issues, and our keen focus on sailing development. It is a vital part of the annual planning process for most of the delegates who attend.”
