Butterfield Bank (Cayman) Limited recently presented the Cayman Islands
Sailing Club with $5,000 to help with the maintenance of their fleet of Byte
sailing boats. The Bytes are used primarily in the Club’s “Sailing and me” youth
programme, which allows for hundreds of children to learn about and enjoy
sailing each year.
Butterfield Bank has been a supporter of the Sailing Club for a number of
years, having purchased three Bytes for the Club a few years ago. The Bank also
helped to fund the completion of the Pete O’Neill Training Facility in 2007,
which is now the home of the current youth programmes.
Director of Sailing, Michael Weber said, “Thanks to Butterfield Bank we will
be able to upgrade the sails on the Bytes and provide the necessary equipment
for our young athletes to compete in Cayman and overseas. Once again we
are grateful for Butterfield Bank’s continued support for youth sailing.”
