WEST INDIES SAIL REGATTA INAUGURAL EVENT
Wednesday 16th March 2011

A perfect  Sunday sunset wrapped its gentle cloak of night around the first West Indies Sail Regatta at Antigua Yacht Club.  With racing completed, satisfied crews and families took their sunset libation and languished in the comfort of a successful get together by a fleet of the finest West Indian sail boats.

With eight boats taking part - sloops Genesis, Ocean Nomad, Pipedream, Summer Cloud and Sweetheart, the cutter Good Expectation and schooners Alexander Hamilton and At Last - it was indeed a great sight to see.

Sunday’s race saw Summer Cloud with line honours, Ocean Nomad left Sweetheart becalmed under Procter Point to take 2nd on corrected time with Genesis in third.  Failing winds caught the other boats short.

A big thank you to Elizabeth Jordan, Antigua Yacht Club Commodore, along with Andrew Robinson from Woodstock, for getting the organizing the event.  Thanks also to Elizabeth’s  barbe-crew for Saturday’s feast on the Yacht Club lawn.

Many thanks to Alexis Andrews for showing  two inspiring short films of the Carriacou Regatta and the West Indies Sail Regatta in St Barth.

The organizers are very grateful to the boat skippers for coming together to make it all possible, for preserving and supporting West Indian boat building, and for donations in support of the Antigua National Sailing Academy.
