Superyacht Challenge Antigua - Nilaya and Tenaz revel in the Sunshine

Superyacht Challenge Antigua

With a mean wind speed of 17 knots and brilliant sunshine, normal service resumed in the superb sailing grounds off the South Coast of Antigua for the second day of racing at the Superyacht Challenge Antigua.

In the Corsair Class 112ft Baltic, Nilaya won both races to take pole position in the regatta from the 147ft Baltic, Visione. Swan 90, Freya remains in third place having posted a fourth and a second today.

In the Buccaneer Class, the 128ft Dubois Tenaz retains the lead having scored a second and a win. 82ft Oyster, Zig Zag won the first race and a second in the last race retains second place for the class, just a point behind Tenaz. 102ft ketch, Maramar scored two podium finishes and retains third in class.

Oyster 82, Zig Zag is competing at the regatta for the first time. Skipper Phil Howard Smith has been delighted with the performance so far. “What is really pleasing is that we are sailing the boat well and that is being rewarded in the rating system being used. We are getting off the line with good speed and the upwind team and the downwind team are driving and trimming the boat extremely well.
