A veteran of dozens of international sailing regattas, including Grenada Sailing Week, explained why he had decided to support the Froehlichs in this venture: “I am delighted to sponsor this project which opens up exciting new opportunities for young sailors in Grenada. Because I have gained so much personal pleasure from ocean racing – particularly in Grenadian waters – I am keen that young people here share in this experience. Not only will it help them build their confidence, teamwork and positive attitude, but it will also harness the enthusiasm of Grenada’s up and coming sailing talent and enable them to develop their skills in competitive, international sailing environment.”
A recent winner of his class at the prestigious UK national regatta at Cowes, Mark is a highly experienced competitive sailor in both dinghy and sportsboat categories. During a visit in 2015 to the RF33 workshop in Westerhall Mark said: “I am extremely impressed with Rene’s innovative design and I am looking forward to seeing the Grenada Team Sailing project take shape this year. It will be great for competitive sailing in Grenada.”
