Confirmed for January 17th to 19th in Miami, and will form part of the Alex Caviglia Bluewater Classic. Notice of Race [more]

On behalf of the Alex Caviglia Bluewater Foundation and Shake-A-Leg Miami, we are proud to announce the 2008 Alex Caviglia Bluewater Classic, from Friday, January 18 to Sunday, January 20, 2008 in Coconut Grove, Florida. It will benefit Shake-A-Leg Miami, an organization devoted to use sailing in order to bring hope, confidence, social integration, independence and fun back into the lives of people with disabilities and their families.

As individuals, we can all make a difference to the world we live in. Whether we contribute to our immediate family, our neighborhood or globally, every small kindness will count. The Caviglia family lives in Miami and has contributed to its community for almost 30 years. Sadly, in November of 2004, we lost Alex, a consummated kite-boarder and windsurfer, champion multi-class sailor, soccer coach, business and family man. To celebrate his memory, we take great pleasure in inviting you to be a part of this fun Regatta and to discover the social benefits of inclusive sailing.

The Alex Caviglia Bluewater Classic will offer good fun, top level competition in a variety of open classes, superb race management, a perfect venue, terrific parties, and great food. Races will run daily from the mornings through the early afternoons. Spectator boats will provide up close views of the on-the-water action. Sailors and non-sailors can meet at the evenings’ party. These gatherings will include many activities and live performances as well as videos of the day’s events.

The organizations listed below are working together to ensure the success of this sailing festival:

Caviglia Foundation

Shake-A-Leg Miami

Miami Windsurfing

Thank you for your past and future efforts on behalf of The Alex Caviglia Bluewater Foundation. We invite you to participate and hope to see you in Miami January, 2009!

Very warm regards,

The Alex Caviglia Bluewater Classic Committee
