ACYR: EXCITING NEW DEVELOPMENTS
Friday 14th December 2018


The new Steering Committee for the Antigua Classics was announced on 13 November 2018

CARLO FALCONE – Chairman
CAMERON FRASER – Vice-Chairman
FRANKLYN BRAITHWAITE - Commodore of the Antigua Yacht Club
TOMMY PATERSON – Competitor Liaison Officer
JANIE EASTON – Treasurer
GILLY GOBINET - Programme Editor, Social Media & Sponsor Liaison
 
Since this announcement, a welcome new appointee to the Steering Committee is long-standing devotee to the Antigua Classics  DON WARD, who joins us as Financial Advisor.
 
The main aim of this new Committee is to make sure all our competitors are happy. It is therefore focusing more on what happens on the water by introducing windward starts and new courses so that the racing is both safer and more challenging. The definition of classic boat eligibility for registration is also under review and meanwhile a new Dragon class will be included at the Regatta in 2019.

We will still be holding our very popular shore-based parties and social events, such as Music Night and the Sea Shanty Competition, and other traditional events that celebrate this unique and world-class event.
 
A number of yachts have already expressed interest in or registered for the 2019 Event, such as Athos, Sumurun, The Blue Peter, Chlöe Giselle, Janley, Mariella, Mary Rose and the new Leonardo build Eagle44 Willpower.  A more complete list can be seen on our website http://www.antiguaclassics.com/registration/

We hope you will be as excited as we are with these new developments and will come and join us next year for some serious racing in our superb sailing conditions and lots of fun too!

Ginny Field, Regatta Press Officer
