In today’s economy, people believe it’s more important than ever to be socially responsible. Haiti Sailing Cup is proud to host annual sailing competitions within small fishermen villages in an effort to improve the lives of the fishermen
— Patrick Beliard (HSC Founder)

For centuries, the Haitian fishermen have been building wooden sailboats to go fish and provide for their families and villages. They decorate them with bright colours, and often salvage, and use whatever they can find to create sails. In 2014, The Haiti Sailing Cup was founded by Patrick Beliard,(a local from Cap-Haitian) with the main mission to collaborate with small communities and boost the local economy, We believe this project has so much potential to make a huge impact on the Haitian community, and it is up to us to help make a difference, keeping this sailing tradition alive, and the reefs healthy. In 2018, we were more than proud to be part of this event by sponsoring our very own team. We were only able to reach this amazing goal thanks to more than 200 of our Sailing Uma followers contributing from all over the globe. This year, we are aiming to get more boats, more sails and more fishermen out on the water.

TEAM UMA members get to be directly involved in their success by helping provide new sails and outboards to the teams.

As a Haitian Sailor myself, This project is very dear to my heart, and I strongly believe it is the long term commitment that truly makes a difference.
