Grenada’s talented young sailors need access to a lean, mean racing machine to help them progress to international competitive yacht racing around the Caribbean.
Rene Froehlich, designer, shipwright and sailing teacher, has the answer – a custom-built sportsboat type racer, designed and built in Grenada by people with expert knowledge of Caribbean racing conditions.
The hull of the 35.6 ft planing hull open racer is nearly complete. Now Rene needs US$ 60,000 to complete the project – working title RF33 – and has come up with a novel sponsorship deal to make the dream a reality.
Sponsors in both Grenada and the UK have already backed this imaginative scheme to get Grenada’s youth competing on the international sailing scene. Find out more about how you could get involved.
