Antigua and Barbuda Race Day at Panerai British Classic Week was for the first time all week a day that dawned with glorious warm sunshine and a nice 7-10 knots from the southwest. Sadly the sun did not last and by mid afternoon the rain had set in again with the wind going light and very shifty.
Competition for today’s overall honours was particularly fierce as the teams knew they were racing not only for overall victory, but that the winner would receive a luxury holiday to Antigua and Barbuda courtesy of the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority and St James Club and Villas. With its azure-blue waters, 365 spectacular white and pink sandy beaches, a rich colonial heritage and some of the most spectacular sailing conditions anywhere on the planet, Antigua and Barbuda are a sailor’s dream holiday destination.
The St James’s Club Resort and Villas are tucked away on a secluded 100-acre peninsula on the south eastern coast of Antigua and exude a casual, club-like ambience. Whether your hearts desire is a romantic retreat for two, an action packed sports holiday or you simply want to relax, unwind and rejuvenate the St James’s Club can meet your every need.
After some three and a half hours of racing the leading six boats were separated by less than three minutes on corrected time and Hugh Morrison’s Savannah took line honours.
