Regatta organisers, measurers, race officials and others with an interest in the sport of sailing will gather in Antigua from 13 – 15 October 2017 at the CSA Annual Conference.

The Conference will return to Antigua Yacht Club in English Harbour, Antigua this year and offer up three days, including the Annual General Meeting, Measures Meeting and Regattas Organisers Conference providing a forum for discussion about the sport in the region. Topics which will come under the microscope will include sponsorship procurement, sailing development and certification, the CSA Rating Rule and race management strategies.

The Annual Conference is a unique opportunity for people to get together and share ideas and challenges both for their events and for how to advance yacht racing in the region. Attendees always come away super charged and super inspired perfectly timed just prior to the beginning of the international racing season.

President Kathy Lammers says of the conference:  ‘The CSA Conference provides a perfect opportunity for those of us across the Caribbean region with an interest in the sport of sailing to get together to share experiences and ideas for improving the sport and our many annual events. It’s also a great opportunity for organisations who want to reach all the organisers to use this forum to do so. An event not to be missed for all of us!’
