Sailing is a great life skill that helps people develop leadership, teamwork and STEM skills. Racing is a fun way to test those skills. And racing to Mexico is a goal for many because of the marine life, warm water, and wind that consistently blows you in the right direction. And so, the Jackson Hole Ocean Sailing Team has entered the March 2020 San Diego to Puerto Vallarta Race. A premier race that attracts sailors from all over the world. http://pvrace.com We were thinking about entering the race to Cabo but they only run it in odd years! And PV is more fun anyway….
You are invited to join the crew. It starts with training. I would like you to complete three training sessions between now and March 2020. You will learn more about sailing, the boat, your role and what it will take to excel. Assuming that everything works out, you will be offered a spot on the crew.
The first training session is June 1 – 7 in La Paz. That is where JHOST keeps the boat Hokahey. Hokahey is a sleek, fast, top class race boat that is very fun. Each session requires a $1,000 donation. ($700 if you are under 21 and if you are from a challenged background, talk to the captain about our sliding scale). Your contribution gets you food, drink, and lodging on the boat for the week that we are there.
We hope you come aboard matey! If you have questions, talk to the captain: firstname.lastname@example.org
