Kialoa III, the 78ft beauty has returned to reclaim her glory at Antigua Sailing Week having last won in 1979. We race on board this historical yacht during Peter and May Race Day 4.
The legendary yacht is the S&S 78 Kialoa III, which was one of the most well-known of Jim Kilroy’s Maxis and best remembered for her line honours victory in the 1975 Sydney Hobart when she broke the race record that stood for 21 years!
She was unbeatable in the Maxi circuit in the 70s but now she has sailed over 8,000 miles to Antigua to try to emulate her win back in 1979.
