The more kids learn how to sail a boat the better it is for Aruba. Aruba’s nature and ocean are so beautiful and it gives a great opportunity to teach kids how to sail and appreciate nature more.
Aruba International Regatta had an idea to build a boat and sell it. The funds would be donated to SYWA for more materials.
Kooyman Aruba donated wood and plywood for this project.  Studio Advisory donated all the other needed materials. Rik van der Vaart and Yair Lichtenstein built the boat, a “Seagull” design by John Welsford. 
The boat was sold for AWG 2.600,- (about USD1.500,-) to an Aruban fisherman. The symbolic “check” was given to SYWA at a small ceremony. The young sailors and the SYWA instructor were all very happy with the donation.
