Passionate about Sailing. Passionate about life. When you can’t control the winds, adjust your sails.

L-R: Mike Bingley, Carol Gorvett, Louis Cuenoud, Richard Szyjan, Brian Sylvester, Patrick Brathwaite
Patrick Brathwaite is the Chairman of Grenada Sailing Week. He is Grenadian born and a sailing enthusiast. His interest in sailing is more than social. He is manager of Island Water World in Grenada and with several investments in the marine sector (Grenada Marine and Shadowfax), he sees the future of sailing and Grenada as one.
Mike Bingley was born in the UK and his love of the water started many years ago. In 2002 he bought his first yacht and then sailed from the UK to the Caribbean, settling in Grenada. He is a Diesel Engineer and owns Palm Tree Marine, so not only does he enjoy racing boats, he also likes to fix them.
Richard Szyjan was born in France and from an early age sailed dinghies and windsurfers, and later 85′ racing cats. It is his continued passion to race monohulls and multihulls. He has over 23 years of nautical industry experience in sail making and rigging in the Caribbean and runs Turbulence Ltd.
Louis Cuenoud is French born and has lived and worked in the Caribbean marine industry for many years. He has a wide international racing experience and is passionate about sailing in Grenada.
Brian Sylvester is Grenadian born with a long history of international racing, and supporting and promoting both local and regional regattas and events.
Carol Gorvett is our Regatta Manager. Carol sailed from the UK to the Caribbean with her husband, Mike, in 2013. Plans to sail the Carribean for several years were disrupted when they fell in love with Grenada and decided to settle there. Since then Carol has been involved in the sailing community in Grenada as Commodore of a local yacht club and Vice- President of Grenada Sailing Association.
