Antigua Sailing Week ~ Final Day results

Antigua Sailing Week ~ Final Day results

The final day of the 48th edition of Antigua Sailing Week was blessed with amazing conditions, 20 knots of trade winds, pumping down the rugged south coast of Antigua, kicking up a sea state in brilliant tropical sunshine.

With the full programme of eight races completed, the winners of the 13 classes will be celebrating in Falmouth and English Harbours prior to tonight’s Final Awards Ceremony.

In CSA 5, Scarlet Oyster kept its unbeaten run in dramatic fashion. Andy Middleton’s First 47.7, EH01, chartered by members of the Royal Southern Yacht Club, Hamble UK came within two seconds of beating Scarlet Oyster on corrected time. Bill Blain is a long standing member of the Royal Southern Yacht Club and his first trip to Antigua Sailing Week was made even more special due to the fact that he was married to his sweetheart Nicola just days before the regatta.

Twelve teams including EH01 and Scarlet Oyster entered the inaugural Royal Southern Yacht Club Inter-Yacht Club Challenge, open to teams representing yacht clubs from all over the world.

In the Multihull Division, Eduardo Perez’s Gunboat G4, Timbalero III scorched around the race track to win the CSA Multihull Racing Class. In the CSA Multihull Bareboat Racing Class, Lindsay Irwin’s Frigidaire won the last race of the day to beat James Mastro’s Yasawa 2 to the title.

Peter Lewis’ TP52, Conviction, sailed by the Barbados Offshore Sailing Syndicate, scored their eighth straight win over Saulius Pajarskas’ Volvo 60, Ambersail to win CSA Racing 1. In CSA Racing 2, Alan Edwards’ classic Swan 65, Spirit dominated the class to win by a handsome margin. Oyster 82, Starry Night of the Caribbean was well-sailed and rewarded with second in class. Ondeck Farr 65, Spirit of Juno was third. However, there will be smiles aboard Jean-Paul Riviere’s Dolphin 100, Nomad IV which finished the regatta in style, winning the last race.

In CSA 3, Daniel Figueirido’s Argentinean team racing Soto 53, Humildad Zero won the last race of the regatta, winning a highly competitive class. Sir Richard Matthews’ Grand Soleil 56, Shine, finished second today and runner-up for the class. Nigel Passmore’s J/133, Apollo 7 scored eight podium finishes during the regatta to claim third place.Antigua Sailing Week ~ Final Day results

In CSA 4, Bernie Evan-Wong’s RP37, Taz was well and truly lit up today, planing downwind, hitting a top speed of 18 knots to win the last race of the regatta and the class by five points from Ian Hope-Ross’ Melges 32, Kick ’em Jenny II. Jim Hightower’s Texan team racing King 40, Hot Ticket was second in today’s race and third in class for the regatta.

Scarlet Oyster was the run away winner in CSA 5 but the big battle was for second between Carlo Falcone’s Caccia alla Volpe, Andy Middleton’s EH01 and Christian Reynolds’ Swan 51, Northern Child. EH01 won the three-way battle scoring second in the last race with Northern Child pipping Caccia alla Volpe by a single point to claim the last podium position.

In CSA 6, Chris Jackson’s First 40.7, Profile Logic crewed by the Sailing Logic team continued its impressive form winning today’s race to make it seven wins out of eight races. Patrick Holloran’s First 40.7, Caipirinha could only manage fifth in the last race but held on to second in class from last year’s class winner, Pocket Rocket, owned and helmed by Dave Cullen.

In CSA 7, Roberto Carassa’s Italian team racing At Last. finished the regatta with their sixth bullet to win the class. Kurt Iseli’s Grand Soleil 50, Boingo Alive was second for the regatta and Rodney Dodd’s Blue Fin climbed up to third on the last race to finish the regatta in style.Antigua Sailing Week ~ Final Day results

In CSA 8, Jonty Layfield’s CS40, Sleeper/U Go won every race to win the class, but the standard of racing and intensity of the competition was highlighted in the last race. Sleeper won by just over a minute from Geoffrey Pidduck’s Six Meter, Biwi Magic, which was a solid second for the series. The battle for third in class could not have been closer. In the last race a dead heat between Tanner Jones’ J/30 Blue Peter and Peter Schofield’s HOD 35, Zarafa gave the last podium place for the class to Steve Carson’s Hightide by half a point from Zarafa.

In the 35 strong Bareboat Fleet, Alice Martin’s Painkiller Racing from Chicago was second in today’s race to win Bareboat 1. Eric Lynch’s Lynch Mob was second in class and a win in the last race elevated Paul Grundmeijer’s Lady Suzanne to third in class.

In Bareboat 2, Mario Bacchelli’s Team Mariela won the last race of the regatta lifting the Italian team to third in class. Colman Garvey’s Irish team racing KH+P Balaou was fourth today, just enough to hold onto second for the class. Christoph Nielsen’s KH+P Tintamarre was the winner of Bareboat 2 with a race to spare.

The outstanding performance in the Bareboat Division was from Martin Sager’s KH+P Cayenne, which won all eight races to claim the Bareboat 3 Class win. Fabio Muzio’s Jamais 203 was second and Stefan Fahrlander’s Clarabella was third.
