AYC SAILORS TRIUMPH AT SOL ST. MAARTEN OPTIMIST REGATTA
Thursday 14th November 2019

Ten Optimist sailors from the Antigua Yacht Club Junior Sailing Program led by Coach Karl James travelled to St. Maarten on November 8th to test their skills at the 14th annual SOL sponsored event. Antiguan sailors swept the top spots of both the championship (blue) fleet, and the intermediate (orange) fleet.

Ozani Lafond claimed first place in the Championship (Blue) fleet, dominating the entire field with 14 points overall and seven 1st place finishes, a 3rd and a 4th. His teammates Shanoy Malone and Daniel Anglin took 2nd and 3rd respectively, with Alistair Knoblauch in 7th, Patrick Greensmith in 8th and Diego Ewinger in 9th. Young Carrack Jones also had an outstanding regatta, taking 1st in the Intermediate fleet on the strength of 8 firsts and a 3rd for a total of 11 points overall. His brother Tyden Jones placed 2nd and Henry Greensmith took 3rd. Emily Gaillard, the only girl on the Antigua Team claimed 4th, only 1 point behind third place. A total of 31 sailors from 6 different countries attended, with a total of 11 races run in great sailing conditions of 15 knots plus.

Big thank you to the parents of all sailors for their support, Captain Tony and Yacht Augustine for transporting all the Antigua Team equipment.
