Outreach Programme:

Planning is now underway for next year’s Educational & Medical Outreach Programme.  Last year’s winning team of Carla Kramer & Myla Villanueva will again be leading the Outreach efforts and will this year be joined by our own Doctor Dennis Cruz as the Coordinator of the Medical Outreach.  We are also very pleased to confirm “LifeLine Rescue” as our Medical Partner and look forward to finalizing plans in the New Year.

We are currently planning three (3) Outreach events that will be held during the Anvaya Cove 13th Philippine Hobie® Challenge Series.  All sailors & support teams will be encouraged to participate in these events.  The first will be near Candelaria, Zambales, the second near San Antonio, Zambales, and the final near Morong, Bataan.  It is our intention to provide educational & medical supplies to 100 families at each location.  We would welcome any donations or support for this very worthwhile programme.

Rally Fleet:

David Wheeler & Harry Taylor have been working closely with the Event Organizers to put together a Rally Fleet program for the Anvaya Cove 13th Philippine Hobie® Challenge Series.  Full details of the Rally event will be released soon to Yacht Clubs and individuals.  For further details please contact the Event Secretariat.
