HOT JULY FOR VYC JUNIOR SAILING
From sailing in International Youth sailing competitions abroad to introducing new youths to sailing in our three consecutive Sailing Camps the Vallarta Yacht Club’s Junior Sailing program enjoyed one of its best ever summer months.
In early July, Junior Sailor Carlos (Tata) Sainz joined other Mexican champions to represent Mexico in the 2013 North American Optimist competitions being held in Bermuda in Caribbean waters. As our coach, Eugenie Russell had been selected as the Head Coach for this elite Mexican team, it was left to VYC sailing Coach Oscar Sanchez to begin our annual summer camps here at home.
During this first week, Coach Oscar received the bright new VYC Windsurf boards and immediately put them to use by the five anxious teens from VYC and Guadalajara. Also, during the week, Club Manager Rudy Trejo opened registration for the next week’s Beginner Optimist Camp.
On Monday, Eugenie, just back from Bermuda; and expecting eight to 10 young new sailors, was shocked to be presented to 20 very anxious kids ranging from 6 to 14 years of age. Fortunately, she and Oscar were assisted by the returning Carlos Sainz, and former Optimist sailors Juan Varela and Nora Urbina as well as new VYC member David Evans. Beginning the week in some amount of disorder; by the end of the week our expert instructors and their assistants had all 20 kids out in the Bay solo sailing in an Optimist boat. Yes, there were several capsizes. But, by this time, under supervision, the kids were able to self-recover and “sail-on”. With Carlos Sainz returning from the Bermuda North Americans, another VYC sailor, this week saw Adrian Varela, leaving to compete in the Optimist Worlds Championship in Italy.
If we thought the previous week enrollment was large, the final week saw a total enrollment of 23 youths! Even though Juan Varela was preparing to leave for the Worlds Youth Windsurf Championship in Poland, Eugenie and Oscar were well assisted by the return of Nora Urbina and Carlos Sainz and Marina transient slip boater (future VYC member?) Laura. Of the 23 students, eight kids were returnees from the previous week and joined the Intermediate Optimists group while Nora coached the 3 Lasers and Oscar coached the Windsurfing teens.
Each afternoon, Israel and Vidal provided nourishing 3-course lunches to all the kids sitting with their instructors at two long tables. I hope you can imagine this sight of young kids talking, laughing and anxious to see what was being served for dessert while at another smaller table women were playing cards and at yet another table, men were playing dominoes. And, throughout the period, great sailing videos were flickering on the TV screens. Miraculously, Daniel, Christian, Nadia and Aloi kept everything working smoothly.
In the afternoon of the last day, Optimists, Lasers and Boards were all out on the Bay for what appeared to be “free-style” sailing; but was, in fact, an informal race. Rudy was kind enough to take the parents aboard the Club boat so they could see their kids demonstrate their sailing skills close-up. The race awards later that afternoon were well attended by kids and their parents (many of whom ordered snacks and dinner from our menu).
In addition to the functional success of the 2013 Summer Camps, the financial boost to the Club was greatly appreciated. After deducting all related expenses from the collective fees, a meaningful boost to the Club’s Bar and Restaurant operation was also realized.
In addition to Eugenie, Oscar, Juan, Nora, Carlos, David and Laura; many, many, thanks are extended to Ibis for the outstanding Public Relations and media promotional coverage and to the Junior Sailing parents and kids that manned the Valle Real Mall display for those important two consecutive weekends in June.
And lastly, a hearty felicidades goes out to our Junior Sailors; Carlos Sainz, Adrian Varela, and Juan Varela who qualified for and competed as members of the Mexican Team at the North American Optimist, Optimists Worlds, and the Worlds Windsurfing 2013 Championships!
