Anguilla Youth Dinghy Regatta

The Anguilla Youth Sailing Club will be holding their annual sailing regatta on Saturday, January 28th in Sandy Ground.

The regatta will have four separate classes- gold and silver Optimist (for sailors 15 and under), Club 420, and Lasers (for sailors 18 and under).

Registration to participate will begin at 8am, while the first race will start at 9:30am.  Assuming everything goes on time (which it normally does), the award ceremony will begin at 3:30pm.

Over 30 sailors from St Maarten, St Barths, Nevis, Puerto Rico, and of course, Anguilla have already registered.

Sounds like it will be a fun way to spend a Saturday!  Good luck everyone!

Congratulations to Keiron “Speedie” Rogers

Congratulations to Keiron “Speedie” Rogers, who set an Anguillian record for the 100 meters.

His 10:55 seconds time at the 2011 World Athletics Championships (in Daegu, South Korea) breaks a 20-year record held by Trevor Davis.

Congratulations, too, to coach Wilma Proctor.

Keiron did not proceed to the final rounds in the next heat, but world-class performances recently by “Speedie,” Shinelle Proctor (who set a personal best (PB) of 12:89 seconds at the same meet), and 17 year old Dee-Ann Rogers auger well for the future of Anguilla track.

Also, as Anguilla does not have Olympic status, remember to cheer for Shara Proctor who was asked by the UK to join their Olympic team. Anguilla has a medal hopeful for 2012!
