With the CSA Annual Conference due to take place a week today, the CSA is delighted to announce that two new sponsors have come on board.

Velour Imports is a US Craft Beer Export Company who plan on building their business in the region. Attracted by the opportunity to present their brand and discuss marketing options with conference delegates who will represent 15 countries across the region, Velour Imports is interested in discussing potential sponsorship of events across the region. They will present as part of the Revenue Management and Creation Seminar on Saturday October 13.

Supporting the CSA’s focus on growing participation in the sport of sailing, Tendrr is a crew matching platform which brings boat owners and crew together. The added extra compared to other platforms is that it engages with events and yacht clubs to offer a similar service thus enabling more boats and crew to be aware of opportunities to get out onto the water. Tendrr will be part of the Regatta Opportunities and Challenges on Saturday morning.

Key sessions delegates are looking forward to include presentation of the CSA Sailing Development Plan which will deliver a cohesive vision of how the CSA will seek to continue its role of co-ordinating regional resources to enable yacht clubs and sailing schools to develop their programmes, Peter Holmberg’s ‘International and Caribbean Racing Overview, in the separate Measurers’ Meeting, updates on the 2019 CSA Rating Rule and an update from Sailors for the Sea on sustainability and regattas.

Anyone interested in attending can find relevant information about the conference at www.csaconference.org including the list of delegates, the programme and registration. The Conference venue is the Starfish Jolly Beach Resort in Antigua.
