LAY DAY WAS HOTThursday 29th April 2010
With Lay Day back in the official Antigua Sailing Week programme, the committee waited with baited breath to see who would turn out for their chance to get wet, have fun and generally entertain visitors at the Antigua Yacht Club Marina yesterday.
With six teams in place the afternoon finally got off to a fun start with the Tug of War and a further give games, ending with the hilarious Cracker and Carib Race. Contestants had to swim out to an inflatable, grab crackers to eat, then wash it down with a bottle of Carib and swim back to the dock, to hand over to the next team member.
Winners of that game as well as the entire competition were sailors on board Akiola 5 representing official sun cream sponsors Ocean Potion. Hundreds of people came out to watch the spectacle and enjoyed an afternoon of sun.
Other participants also included Rainforest represented by the Red Buoys yacht, the Antigua Yacht Club represented by yacht Coyote, English Harbour Rum team Yeah, Carib with more members of Akiola 5 and a team from whiskey sponsor Chivas Regal.
