Empowering Women and Giving Back in Cabarete

Cabarete to Host the 2012 Millennium Resort & Spa Butterfly Effect July 26th – 28th , 2012.


Cabarete, Dominican Republic July 22, 2012. The Butterfly Effect will land once again in Cabarete on July 26-28th, encouraging girls and women of all ages to get out on the ocean and experience a shared camaraderie and unity with other water-women. The Butterfly Effect is a fun and non-competitive event, and is aiming to instill self-confidence and a love for the ocean in women of all skill levels. Local and visiting women will gather on the beach of Cabarete to complete a 4km downwind ride from Cabarete Bay to Playa Encuentro. The women will be windsurfing, kite surfing, kayaking or stand-up paddling. The event includes safety and stretching sessions, as well as food and gear from local sponsors, and fund-raising for local charities.

The Butterfly Effect began in Hawaii in 2007. Tatiana Howard, the founder of the event, is an avid water woman who enjoys windsurfing, surfing, kite surfing, stand-up paddle boarding, and tow in surfing. This is the 6th year the event has taken place and the fourth year that Cabarete has hosted a Butterfly Effect. Since its inception, it has flown to Brazil, New Zealand, France, Hood River Oregon, Dominican Republic, Germany, Italy, Israel, Tahiti, Fiji, Sweden, Switzerland and Australia. The founders believe that water sports provide a healthy and fun lifestyle that give those who participate in them great happiness and self-confidence. They have been fortunate to be involved in these sports and want to share and instill the lessons they have learned with women worldwide.

“Water sports have empowered, and inspired me to live out my hopes and dreams and giving back to surf communities worldwide is a passion I wish to share with many. Never underestimate the power of women to make change! “ Tatiana Howard, founder, The Butterfly Effect.

Giving back

Fundraising efforts associated with the Butterfly Effect will go to the DREAM Project. The Dominican Republic Education And Mentoring (DREAM) Project is a US 501c3 nonprofit organization that provides quality education for all children born into poverty in rural areas and small communities of the Dominican Republic. Our butterflies will participate with some of the DREAM Project kids in a group beach cleanup within Cabarete Bay.

Get involved

Registration for the event will be held at voyvoy! on Thursday July 26th from 6:30pm–9:30pm. A late registration will take place at Vela Cabarete on Saturday July 28th at 9:30 am. The event will begin at 10:30am on Saturday July 28th. All participants will meet at Vela Cabarete.
