"Only victory is sweet"

They may be young or adults in their prime, or not so young. School kids, budding entrepreneurs, employees or executives but they make our Club a fun place to be. Coming from all walks of life, they all share the same passion – to go out on the water to win.

Don’t tell them it’s enough to participate! Their motivation is to get the boat going, better and better, faster and faster, as if their lives depended on it. When a gust of wind ripples across the sea, barely grazing it, they hold their breath, demanding everyone freeze, as any movement can put the brakes on hard-earned momentum. But when gusts follow gusts, or a rogue wave fills the cockpit, or when equipment breaks loose, just watch them move, quick as a flash, straight to the problem, teeth clenched, totally focused on solving it. Between these extremes, they enjoy the wind caressing the sails as the bow cuts through the swell, leading them to victory which, as we all know, is sweet!
