The International RS Feva Class Association (IRSFCA) has taken the decision to formally recognise the RS Feva-specific competition of the annual CSA Caribbean Dinghy Championship (CDC) as a new and dedicated Caribbean Regional RS Feva Championship.
Speaking on this news, International RS Feva Class Association Secretary Lucy Jameson, commented:
“We are very happy to be able to add a specific Caribbean Regional Championship to the growing list of RS Feva events taking place all globally. With strong RS Feva fleets building in so many countries in the Caribbean region we hope that by providing Caribbean sailors with a formally sanctioned RS Feva class event, that the class will go from strength to strength and we look forward to working with the CSA and their member nations to further develop the spread of the RS Feva class in the Caribbean in the months and years to come.”
This exciting development comes as a result of a sustained growth in RS Feva activity in the Caribbean region with a number of venues including the National Sailing Academy in Antigua and the St. Kitts and Nevis Sailing Association having purchased fleets of RS Fevas for their respective sail training programs.
The CDC regatta takes place from Friday, October 18 to Sunday, October 20, 2020 alongside the CSA Annual Conference as part of the newly formatted Caribbean Sailing Week event. With initial entries already received for teams from Antigua and Barbuda, Puerto Rico and St. Maarten, the CDC is set to provide exciting racing for individual sailors as well as stiff competition for the hotly contested CSA Nations Trophy.
Teams from around the Caribbean region are encouraged to enter to race in any or all of the following classes: Laser Radial, Laser, RS Fevas and Optimist, as well as the RS Venture Connect and Hansa 303 Para Classes.
