Mod - please forgive me if this is not the right Forum or violates any rules. We heard that the Sailing School has made it to the Sunfish Worlds and would love support. It is such a worthy cause and I feel it is so sympathetic with the views of many of the Contributors on Bonaire Talk that I precise the BSSA Flyer here.

=========================================
Until recently Bonaire had only one Sunfish sailor of World level. Sipke Stapert. Now we have quite a few talented sailors who have been sailing in the Sunfish.

In June 2011, the World Championships Sunfish Sailing will be held in Curacao.

This is a unique opportunity for our sailors to participate. The circumstances are comparable and
because of the short distance to Curacao, the costs are with our reach.
Bonaire Sailing School Association ( BSSA) would like to participate with 4 Youth talents in the Sunfish Worlds Youth and with 3 adults and the best youth member in the Sunfish Worlds 2011.

SUNFISH WORLDS YOUTH AND SUNFISH WORLDS 2011
On June 9 the first race will be held in Curacao. The Worlds Youth is a 3 days racing event.
June 11 is the last day of racing and then the results will be announced.
Sunday 12 is the inscription day for the real Worlds and the racing days are Monday, Tuesday,
Wednesday and Friday. The BSSA has decided to use the facilities of the resort where the event will be held Fortunately ,all participating countries get a considerable discount or else our stay at the Resort would not have been possible. Now we can get out of the boats and take a rest before the next race. For the Worlds Youth there will be a coach and there will also be a coach to take care of special needs.

For the coming period we have the following costs:
PARTICIPATION MARCH 20 IN CURACAO $1.600
AIRPLANE TICKETS $1.200
INSCRIPTION FEES WORLDS $5.150
ACCOMMODATION $3.450
TOTAL $11.400
COLLECTED SPONSOR MONEYS $ 4.600
AIMING TO COLLECT SPONSOR MONEY $6.800

REQUEST
Thanks to a generous sponsor, some boys from the Maria Höppner Foundation had the chance to learn how to sail. One of these boys started in 2007 and he is very proud that he is going to
represent Bonaire at the Worlds Youth. His presentation is already worth gold.
INVEST IN OUR FUTURE, INVEST IN OUR BONAIREAN YOUTH.
SEE IF YOU CAN HELP US AND THE CHILDREN OF BONAIRE.
MCB NUMBER 106.268.09 I.N.O. BSSA
