January 2016

BzSA had its Annual General Meeting in Belize City on 9th January 2016. The calendar of regattas was approved. These were the dates.

  • Baron Bliss in Belize City, March 5th and 6th
  • Placencia May 21st and 22nd
  • San Pedro Sailing Club, July 2nd and 3rd (NOTE: moved to Corozal)
  • St George Regatta, 27th and 28th of August
  • Nationals, 27th and 28th of August, also St George

You might be wondering why Corozal was not included that year. Belize is divided into three regions, north, center, and south. Corozal is grouped with San Pedro and Caye Caulker, so we alternate.

Aside from the various clubs attending the meeting, a member of the sports council was also present. The board is looking forward to the assistance and help of the Sports Council. The following persons were elected:

  • Chairperson — Sharon Hardwick
  • Racing and Equipment Officer — Keith Hardwick
  • Training and Development Director — Trenton Miller
  • Marketing — Charlene Jones & Sharon Hardwick
  • Secretary — Debbie Curling
  • Treasurer — Gerard Cordts
  • Public Relations — Myrna Manzanares

As you probably know, two young Belizean sailors participated at the Youth World Championships in Malaysia. The sailed the Laser Radial, which is an Olympic class boat. Our goal now is to acquire more Laser boats so all clubs will have them.

The Corozal Bay Sailing Club had a chili luncheon on February 27th, 2016, at 12pm. Soda and drinks were available. Our sailors were present and showed their skills. A quick review of the year and AGM also took place. There were boat rides after the meeting. The event was at the Cordts' house down Ten Grand Lane.
