Seaboard Marine recently sponsored the 2015 Optimist North American Championship in Antigua. This event provides a safe, supervised area for youth sailors throughout North America and the Caribbean to compete. As a headline sponsor, Seaboard Marine provided the transportation services needed to relocate dinghies for the vast majority of the participants.
The event, held in English Harbour, Antigua, began July 5th and concluded July 12th. Over 160 youth sailors from 10 countries participated. The event was covered by media throughout the region and was a great success.
Stephen Bell, Regional Vice President said, “In addition to Seaboard Marine’s proudly supporting youth athletics throughout the Caribbean, a premier event such as the Optimist Sailing Championship also boosts the local economy as a major source of tourism for Antigua. It is always our pleasure to both serve and support our local communities.”
