Certification for High School
Students from John Gray High
School in Grand Cayman successfully completed the
PADI Open Water Course as part of their school
studies. The course, which is taken by Cayman
Island's youth and run annually by RSS, lays the
foundation for a career in the local dive/watersports
industry. Sunset House Divers kindly supported the
program by supplying the use of its pool facilities,
tanks and dive location to facilitate the confined water
training and open water dives. James Dudley, Director
of Training at RSS, (pictured on left) praised the high
level of commitment that the students showed
throughout their training and added that this year's
course had been completed in record time!

Red Sail Sports first opened its doors on The Big
Island of Hawaii in 1988. For the past 20 years, RSS
has been providing catamaran sails, bike and kayak
excursions as well as watersports for Kohala coast
resort guests. Just this past year, RSS expanded its

island can conveniently sail with the island's sailing
The Noa Noa looking like a
fish out of water.
The Noa Noa: Dry no more!
Each year the RSS catamarans undergo an extensive
dry dock as part of our ongoing commitment to
excellence. Our Hawaii vessels must also meet strict

SMOOTH SAILING IN ST. KITTS
The Balia catamaran is setting sail daily in St. Kitts for
and evening Sunset Sails. Here are just some of the
comments we've received from our first guests:
"Yesterday, my wife and I, plus her
on the Sunset Sail. It was without a doubt the
highlight of our week on St. Kitts. The scenery was
spectacular. Captain Clayton, and the shipmates
(Johnny B and Lance), were so friendly, informative,
and professional. They made the trip even more fun
than we expected. And to top it all off, the catamaran
was absolutely stunning. We've never been on such a
clean, immaculate boat ever...anywhere in the world.
We are coming back to St. Kitts and plan on taking
several more trips with Red Sail Sports. They're top of
the line in every way, and we wouldn't even consider
going to one of their competitors."
Alan Zimmerman & Christine Zimmerman
"Thank you again for a great sail last week.
and I had a relaxing time! The whole experience was
terrific; you have a terrific/friendly crew and a
wonderful/clean sailing vessel! And thank you for
taking care of my daughters on board while my
husband and I got to snorkel."
Petrosini Family, Spring Lake, NJ
"Gentlemen, thank you for the wonderful
hospitality you showed my family earlier this month.
We had a terrific time in St.Kitts and will be sure to
return in the future. Our snorkel sail on the last day
was certainly the highlight and the teenagers are still
telling their friends about it. Thank you again and I
hope I can return the favor in the future."

The Perfect Wedding
Gift is Yours to Give
Sure they signed up for a gift registry, but if you want
your gift to stand out from the others, consider giving
the gift of an UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE: a RSS
gift card. If they are honeymooning anywhere near our
catamarans they are sure to love our popular dinner
sail for two. It's way more fun than a toaster oven and
certainly more romantic than a place setting! A more
adventurous couple would surely enjoy one of our
snorkeling trips or maybe even an introductory scuba
course. Either of these is much better than an
aquarium...and we all know what happens to THOSE
It's true that memories last a lifetime so make your
wedding gift count and contact us today. We'll help you
with the details and answer your questions so that the
entire experience is smooth sailing!
