Bequia Traditional Sailing Academy

The Bequia Traditional Sailing Academy (BTSA) teaches sailing, boat safety, and traditional boat building techniques to young people on Bequia. In July, 2013 the GPF supported the first boat building project of the BTSA.

The result of this effort was a traditional style 18’ double ender sail boat. Students are seen here preparing Camille for race. She has performed beyond expectations and is already known on the regatta circuit as a strong competitor.
