Vincy Sailing is excited to announce a 10-mile sponsored sail, aimed at raising funds to support our talented sailors participating in various international events.

The sail will feature Kai Marks Dasent, a 13 year old seasoned sailor and a student at Marriaqua High School. His journey will start from Blue Lagoon Marina, St Vincent and conclude upon reaching Bar One in Bequia.

The challenging course encompasses the gnarly Bequia Channel, adding an extra layer of excitement and skill to the event. In preparation for this maritime challenge, Kai has been collaborating with local charter company skipper Bry Mascoll from Horizon Yachts, ensuring the safety and success of his endeavour.

Kai said, "I've been sailing for 6 years, it's my passion. I'm inspired by Scarlett Hadley's achievements last year, I want to compete on the international stage, and I want to help the other sailors too. I know funding is critical, so I asked my mum if I could sail from St Vincent to Bequia to raise money, and she said yes! I'm so excited and have been training hard on the water and at Be Fit Movement, I'm ready for this exciting journey."

To contribute to this remarkable cause and support Vincy Sailing's ambitious sailors on their quest for excellence in international competitions, please contact Sabrina on +1 784 532 9746 or email for donation details.

Let's come together as a community to propel our sailors to new heights and showcase the spirit of Vincy Sailing on the global stage.
