PYC YOUTH SAILORS SAIL THE GULF  16-20 FEBRUARY 2010

Rudy and Michael McNeill recently competed in the “Sail the Gulf” Regatta held in Doha, Qatar. This regatta was attended by 21 countries.

The boys went along by themselves and stayed in the Youth hostel along with a number of the other teams. The anticipated winds of 8 knts were not to be, with the first 5 days of wind averaging 25 knts.

The boys thoroughly enjoyed the regatta and gained a lot of experience on both the water and the soccer field (in the daily International “after sailing soccer tournaments”).
