The weekly sailing activity is a favorite among the Stairway children. One can literally see the transformation taking place in some of them. For one child, who was terribly afraid of the water, he conquered his fear and is now one of the best in handling a dinghy in the group!
Last Nov. 1-2, the Puerto Galera Yacht Club (PYGC) held its annual All Souls Regatta. While the main regatta was going on, children from the PGYC Sail Training Program and Stairway children were having their own fun on the water sailing new Lawins and Optimists.
In existence for 10 years, the PGYC Sail Training Program has taught over 300 children to sail.
