San Pedro girls start 2014 Regatta calendar at front of Optimist fleet

Baggy sails on the first day of the 2014 Corozal Bay Regatta hosted by the Corozal Bay Sailing Club caused the regatta start to be pushed back until after noon. Eventually, the wind came in to make 3 races possible on the first day of racing last Saturday, February 8. On Sunday, winds shifted to the east and picked up enough to make the race interesting, and Blanca Velasquez of San Pedro Junior Sailing Club (SPJSC) made a big statement for the first regatta of 2014, taking first place in a fleet of 44 competing Optimist Class boats.

Other top finishers included younger brother Kevin Velasquez (SPJSC) in 2nd place; 3rd was Faith Noel (SPJSC); 4th Jerdon Anderson (SPJSC); 5th Davin Puc (SPJSC); 6th Trent Hardwick of Belize Sea Scouts; 7th Christian Trejo (SPJSC); 8th Antonio Ricardez, Jr. of Belize City Sailing Club; 9th Jazmin Campos of the Corozal Bay Sailing Club; and Sal Scott of Placencia Sailing Club rounding off the 10th spot. Newcomers, the Caye Caulker Sailing Club also tested the waters in their first national ranking regatta.
