American Sailing Association sweepstakes under way

Rosalie Bay Resort and Seaborne Airlines, in cooperation with the American Sailing Association, are giving away a free trip for two in the Eastern Caribbean in support of Hands Across the Sea, a non-profit dedicated to raising the literacy levels of children in the Caribbean.

The weeklong trip to the Nature Island of Dominica is valued at $4,800.

Those interested in winning free round-trip airfare from San Juan to Dominica and a six-night stay at the resort can enter the sweepstakes through Nov. 30 by watching a one-minute video about Hands Across the Sea on the ASA’s website.

Entrants will be invited to make a tax-deductible charitable donation to Hands Across the Sea and ASA will match all donations of $30 or more, up to a total of $1,000, in honor of its 30th anniversary year.

“Despite the West Indies being home to many exotic tourist destinations, local economies typically lack the resources to adequately support education,” ASA executive director Charlie Nobles said in a statement. “The Caribbean is a gift to sailors and the sailing industry, so we are proud to partner with Seaborne Airlines and Rosalie Bay Resort to support Hands Across the Sea’s goal of improving literacy levels in the Caribbean, where economic conditions make children’s books virtually unaffordable for both families and schools.”

Hands Across the Sea works directly with school principals, teachers, learning-support advisers, community leaders and U.S. Peace Corps volunteers to deliver new books to Caribbean schools. It purchases books from education publishers Scholastic and Dorling Kindersley and Caribbean imprints such as Macmillan Caribbean and Editorial Campana Books.

The winner of the trip to Dominica will be drawn in December.
