SUCCESSFUL JUNE REGATTA AND DOCK PARTY
Tuesday 25th June 2019

The NSA was delighted with the success of the first June Regatta and Dock Party which took place on Sunday, June 23, 2019.
 
14 boats entered in two classes, RS Zest and RS Fevas with some highly competitive racing just off the new dock at the Sailing Academy in Falmouth Harbour.
 
The Race Officers were Jules Mitchell and Joshua Daniels, and President Elizabeth Jordan said of their race management, ‘I am so pleased to see the team take on the increased responsibility of running the regatta. They did an excellent job with the support of the volunteer race committee. It is great to see the personal development of the instructors, many of whom are also about to embark on training in the UK.’ Jordan went on to say, ‘The purpose of the Academy is to change the lives of young Antiguans by introducing them to sailing as a leisure option and a career pathway. Running a regatta is one small part of this and I am delighted with how well it went.’

The RS Zest Class was won by Malik Charles with Dave St.Joy second, and Kywain Graham third. Rs Feva Class was won by Jan Klein and Dylan Meade with Tanner Jones and his children in second, and Jean Pierre Hector and Justin Meyer in third.

Many of the youths went back on to the water after the prize giving and then came back at dusk as the LSA Band started the party. The bar and grill were manned by NSA Instructors and members of the Antigua Sailing Week SWAT Team.

A big thanks to sponsors who included Antigua Sailing Week who provided prizes, drinks and volunteers, Geny’s Corner who sponsored food, Crabhole Liquors who sponsored drinks, and Stonewall who provided the sound system.
 
The next regatta will be Bart's Bash which will take place on Sunday September 15, 2019.
