Press Release: Cabarete, Dominican Republic.
The 4th annual “The Butterfly Effect Cabarete” landed in Cabarete on July 28th, 2012. This year’s event saw its largest number of participants registering 102 waterwomen from all over the world. Local and visiting women gathered on the beach of Cabarete to complete a 4km downwind ride from Cabarete Bay to Playa Encuentro. The event was open to women who windsurf, kitesurf, surf, stand up paddle(SUP) or kayak.
The waterwomen of Cabarete united their individual athletic abilities to celebrate their accomplishments as a united group. Over the course of the event many other girls and women were inspired to get out on the ocean and try some of the sports for the first time. The event included a beach cleanup, safety and stretching sessions, as well as food and gear from local sponsors.
The event culminated in a celebration that was held at the Millennium Resort & Spa. A live auction was held, and the Butterfly Effect Dominican Republic surpassed last year’s efforts raising $5000.00 USD for The DREAM Project.
